2. It'll roll off before the close, too
but I'll be sure to check my portfolio tonight. It will be fun to be rich for a day.

6. Pleased about apparent 'resolution' in Europe,
Happy the ADULTS are able to address serious issues seriously (UNLIKE some other places.)

7. Everything is so automated now.
So many have software that shows what the "big investors" are doing and mimics them.

8. GDP is better than expected
and Europe offers a solution that doesn't completely suck, at least to investors.
Should be a good 4th quarter, but after that....?

15. Too bad this doesn't mean "good times" for everyone - Not just those with stocks in their pockets.
I have nothing against someone making money - just like to see those at the bottom get a break too.

17. Well it's kind of like a ship sailing in very rough seas....up and down.
But just because a wave has lifted it up momentarily doesn't mean it's out of danger.

21. This is the setup for
another one of their sweeps. A select few will no doubt sell off bundles and clean up leaving the casual investor wiped out again. They seem to be happening more frequently.
Hope I am wrong though.

22. So the casual investor should do the same thing no?
Timing absolute peaks and troughs is a fools errand but it doesn't take a Soros brain or a Soros wallet to say "geez these guys manipulate the DJIA up to 12 and then back down to 10.5 again and again to catch suckers - so why don't I put in standing orders to buy and sell index funds at that level".

You don't have a chance. You have to trade big orders fast.

23. Why do I suspect this will help the rich while hurting the working class?
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 04:36 PM by white_wolf
I'll be very curious to see how the people of Greece feel about this, if it is accompanied by more austerity they will likely be very angry, and rightly so. For sake of clarity I should point out that I was referring to the rescue packages passed in Europe.

26. Does this mean a freakishly large drop soon? I don't gamble, but it seems to work
that way.

33. Interestingly enough, since OWS began...
...the bulls have been running wild on Wall Street and we just had perhaps the best month in decades.
