my guess

Wow

Talk about intentionally coming off as callous and uncaring...he nailed it! Love him walking away as the reporters are asking good questions. Just waves...and walks away in his $1000 shoes.

Bush spoke

market dropped in the neighborhood of 150 points

Holy Crap!

When Booosh said blaah blaaah under the leadership of Paulson, the dow zoomed down.

Under 8000 today at the last hour.

"There can be only one permanent revolution - a moral one: The regeneration of the inner man."
—Tolstoy

"The body is but a vessel for the soul,
A puppet which bends to the soul's tyranny.
And lo, the body is not eternal,
For it must feed on the flesh of others,
Lest it return to the dust whence it came.
Therefore the soul deceives and despises."

I predict that the market will drop after the Chimp speakes

We will continue to act....fiddeling as we burn doesn't count!

Fed injecting our money to bail out crooks doesn't count either!

FDIC is broke, how are they going to cover 250K for each account?

Am I the only one that get sick watching the chimp speak?

from what i remember

monday is columbus day?

So markets will be closed... but for the week? I doubt that. We will see Saturday I guess...

The PPT stepped in

They can't allow a crash to happen before a long weekend as that would create mass cascading panic come tuesday....so they will continue to pump money into the finacial sector to keep it afloat a little longer...but not much

Prespeech Dow bump

Nice prespeech bump in the dow for the presidential speech.

Anyone think there will be a

bank failure (s) tonight (Friday) right after closing?

Monday bank holiday?

Read somewhere that a week long bank holiday will follow the G7 meeting.

Monday is

Columbus Day. That is a holiday! LOL

Plunge Protection Team steps in

and market goes positive for a brief moment. Their attempts will fail.

anyone know

what time the chimp will try to speak...today?

He will say something and the market will fall to nothing.

He's doing it on purpose. The Fed is doing this on purpose. Why do you think they hired Bernanke he's the so called "expert" on the great depression. He knows exactly what to do to "make one" happen.

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

Yes I believe they

will yo-yo this market so that the dollars can be siphoned off in the options market. Tons of money are being made in this super volatile market. Check out DUG (symbol) and see how much was made overnight in oil. We will see the collapse when the petro-dollars flood this country as the Middle-east (Opec) bails on the dollar. Russia, Brazil. Argentina,Iran, etc etc are already dumping the dollar. Remember 1929 was the beginning and 1933 was the bottom. I believe we will accomplish this in half the time.

Stock up on non-perishables

Lots of food, bottled water, if you live in the Northern Hemispher think about alternate forms of heating your house, also cooking. I am stocking up on Natural Gas tanks. (Hey, if the end doesn't come I can do a lot of barbequing next summer!

approximately 800 points

Does anyone remember what the DOW closed at

yesterday? Or what it was at the open today? The chart I am watching shows it still well over 8000. I am not seeing the drops the others are reporting.

I thought it was around 8550 because I was thinking, oh only

about 550 to go below 8000, but now Yahoo! quote says different. Hummm....
