I say down 750 by close.
725...28 minutes left. This is bad.
It spiked to -740, and then went back up again. Biggest drop ever, passing the old record of -684 which was when the markets re-opened after September 11th.
great time to buy

So far, it's down about 6-7%. Not as bad as 1987.

It's bad, but we must learn to ignore the point drop and look at the percentage drop. That's the real drop.

I'm honestly not too concerned with the close. I am more concerned what is going to happen at open tomorrow - when the rest of the world's markets are at a close.

I said it was bad, and I'm not laughing.
Bah, only ~600 points.
Only a moderately disasterous day.

Close 688.08. I hope you're happy
Oh nice at least it swung sorta in my direction.

Can we take bets for tomorrow? I'll bet a 100 point drop and at least another bank failure.

Correction: 748.21 -- I bet Libertasplz is REAL happy now
I'm not taking any bets. Back in the summer I told my friends I wouldn't be surprised to see DOW 10,000. Now I'm thinking it might go lower after this all works through.

Most of those "rich" guys you hate are doing what they can to protect the people who count on them to keep their trust safe and protect their customers, protect uncle freds retirement fund , sally's college inventsment portfolio etc and at the same time themselves , because i dont know a single person in business who doesnt tie up alot of their personal money into his/her own business.
Plus they are trying to keep their customers who ARE paying their bills on time from suffering from those who dont and are dragging everyone else down with them.
Dont blame the rich, blame the guy making 32K a year who bought a 200k$ house AND a 45k$ car. Its those "rich" guys making sure those of you who stayed within their lifestyle and pay on time dont have to foot the bill for the others who didnt or wont.
This whole rich - poor thing is entire a media scare tactic that only people who refuse to understand how things work buy into.
Im ashamed so many people are falling for it. The more i read and see what peolpe think vs whats real the more i really start to beleive we should give the middle and lower class exactly what they want for 10 years ... then come back and ask " How s that working out for you ".
Now im not saying there arent greedy bad people out there , but thats not a rich/ poor thing thats a personality thing. For every 1 bad company you hear of, there are 10-20 goosd ones working in the rules , doing the right things that you will NEVER hear of.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
Seems that things are only getting worse. Seems an economic collapse is near. DOW DOWN 25%

Something had to lighten the mood here.
McCain takes credit for bill before it loses
Oh my god, its down 777+ (7%). Are they going to wind up halting trading at this point?
Just sick... it's not going to end anytime soon. And if it does end quickly, we'll be socialist because of it.
Originally posted by unconformed who makes it drop like this?is it them rich folk that want the bailout and are flexing their economic muscles?wall street having a sissy attack cause they are not getting things their way?liberate me. free my mind. teach me a thing or two.
Seems so. The international industrial and financial chieftains have a lot to gain from this bailout. The whole Dow Jones Industrial Average is based on only 30 stocks, so enough of them take a nosedive, the little guys will follow. Hysteria. Fact is, any true investor abhors the bailout, missing out on buying loan portfolios for pennies on the dollar sucks gonads. It could've made millions of millionaires in theory, and provide the liberated borrowers huge amounts of equity, reenergizing the economy, but what would a fascist dictatorship be if it did what was good for the people?

Oh goody that worked out nicely...too bad I wasnt more aggressive in terms of the size of my options.
A lot easier money than working.
