Just want an opinion of the current conditions and an honest one, not an overly paranoid one, unless there is reason to be paranoid.
Anybody that tells you they know that the market (will bounce back / fall even more) is full of Bull s..... Nobody can predict what will happen next ,but IMOA , I think the only ones that will get hurt right now are the ones that caused most of this mess anyway so screwwwww them ... IE the speculators that drove the oil prices up to almost 150 a barrell because of what they thought was going to happen, It did not happen and look at the price now......
Most people that are in for the long term will be fine.
The market will be up and down for a few weeks and then IMOA i think it will get back on track.......Again this is just my feelings and in no way do i have a chrystal ball, mark this day down (dow at 10,685.38 )and come back to me in a month and tell me how i am doing

Having been on Wall St over 25 years
I would not worry about the FDIC (hey, it is the goverment, if they run out of money they just print some MORE)
While I agree, monetization is probably one of the last things the government wants to do, because then you leave the door open for inflation.

I just bailed him out over this little mess! I told him, if you're going to be pulling this crap, at least look for cameras before you pull out your weapon!!! I don't think he's going to get out of jail time with this one!!!

It's gotten so bad that rumor has it, Santa is filing for chapter 11 since not even God can secure some loans on this market. Santa even tried the devil for a bridge loan but the devil is in talks w/ God about a possible merger. Meanwhile the toothfairy is in talk w/ Santa about a possible buyout/takeover.

In the meantime, local loan shark Vinny Bagadonuts is standing by awaiting everyone to turn to him.
You KNOW it's bad when this happens....

Probably a bunny from a foreign nation at that.

I just did that. Actually marked it on my calendar to check next month with this months figure recorded.

Thanks for being honest. I'd rather have an educated "who knows" than an undeducated doom and gloom or super prosperity answer.
