Lowest level since 2002(where was the panic then?).
I think Zod had an thread before the Huddle's own crash to call the bottom.
I think we are at or near the bottom for the DOW. Not saying the economy but the Dow. Big distinction.
Nice time for a rally for the rest of Feb and early March. :hat:

*Also, read an intresting article in Esquire last night on this subject and finally someone articulated what I have been trying to say in terms of the gloom and doom and so called experts and economists.
He called it recency bias.
http://www.esquire.c...9?click=main_sr

Upon reading Krugman's work, one is hardly so surprised by the current economic crisis. But if this crisis was so foreseeable, how come so few people foresaw it?

These contracts are one manifestation of a phenomenon known as recency bias — the tendency to place too much weight on recent events. Think of the gambler who doubles her bet at the blackjack table because she's won her past couple of hands — her odds haven't changed any, but her perception of them has. FINALLY. Yes to what I have thought.


Happy investing

We need a new story to distract people from the Stock Market and the economy. Do that, and the Dow will begin to recover.

It such an interesting situation. Everyone is waiting to throw their money in the right place at the right time. Everyone thinks "well the dow can't get any lower." Everyone is waiting to make a move, they just don't want to be the first to do it.

Better to be early than late.
Gold has blown up lately. Oil steadily climbing.
Tons of money flowing OUT of treasuries. Hmm.
Me thinks the DOW is at 8500 before the Final 4. Might be too ambitious though.
