And then again

tomorrow may be worse. Everyone will lose something one way or the other before it is through whether in the stock market or not.

over 500 now

Oh great

i won this little guessing game and lost about $3,000 in my 401K today.

Don't they give you an option

to put it into something other than stocks? I am sure a lot of people saw their 401K 's hit really hard today.

lol that sucks .. screw all

lol that sucks .. screw all those paper contracts and convert to hard assets now

Yipppeee

I always knew I was a winner. LOL .

they seem to have two "magic numbers"

It seems like lately they will let the DOW bounce down around 100 points, then force it under 100 in the last 20 minutes of trading on "bad" days. On days like today, they seem to hit the brakes at about 300 points. (Really, what stopped the slide today? Is there any reason it is not STILL tanking, in the real world?) They will keep it from doing much lower than -300 all day, then force it back into the 200's just before close. Closing bell guess for me? 297.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

it is an indirect taxation

it is an indirect taxation even if you think there is no labor being taxed there ... the money you used to invest was obtained through labor ... so you were taxed when you worked for the money .. and now you are being taxed again for using your money earned by your hard labor ...

there should be no capital gains tax

this market is sooo rigged

it will not correct to real levels until after the election or a false flag event.

The PPT is pumping hard.

What they have just done,,,,,

Is establish a time frame needed to push this market to what ever level they eventually want. After lunch they will implicated another push if they want . And it seems that thats what they want.

Bizarre

It's actually recovering. At -180 now. Seems like it is being steered.

steering

plunge protection team.

When people get really scared they will run to gold/silver. If/when that happens we will be in the final steps of the unwinding of fractional reserve banking.

It is the UNWINDING that is deleveraging the available credit that is contributing to the problems. Credit availability is contracting. If/when people put their saving into gold/siver, the banks won't be able to leverage those savings account dollars. If/when this happens, expect it to be incredibly difficult to get any kind of house/car loan.

It is starting to go down

It is starting to go down again... currently at -222.

You seem please by the impending drop. Are you? If so, Why?

Financial chaos will lead to even more government intervention in the markets. I truly want less.

Free market capitalism thrives on corrections and changes. It isn't a bad thing that these so-called traditional financial institutions are being scrutinized and abandoned.

h-daddy

some of us believe it is

some of us believe it is inevitable and the longer it gets held off the worse it will l be and the harder the recovery will be.

I would rather get the whole crisis over with so we can start recovering sooner....

It's a good thing most of the Asian markets are close today

Our fondest wishes. and our worst fears, are seldom realized !

Any bets on whether trading will be halted...

due to the excessive losses? I forget what percentage it has to fall before they pull the plug on trading. Anyone know?

I say, whatever the threshold is, it will be met. Trading will be halted.

Stop the NWO....It's just illumi..Naughty !

actually it is the top story

actually it is the top story on every news network.

A few networks are even reporting speculation of a 20% drop in the market.

They are actually fueling this thing.

Doesnt really matter in the end though. The country isnt going to take its money out of the market and pay taxes on their 401k's.

Only ones who will take th money out will be the banks, trying to keep capital and stay afloat.

I think it would be pretty cool

if they all took their money out of their 401k's and decided to NOT pay the taxes on them.

why? Income received from

why? Income received from stock earnings is PROFIT without labor. I have no problem taxing that.

It is the taxation of labor I have a problem with. Taxation of profit is OK in my book.

Except in the case of commodity sales, where it is simply avoiding inflation tax and not really a profit.

You need to read up a bit more. :)
