stock market: Deal or No Deal: Wills there be a SUITCASEwith $700,000,000,000 In It? - 09/29/08 07:47 AM
Markets are free markets--they do what they do. Tomorrow, we could be up 600 points. Traders and speculators are having a field day as they take advantage of all of the emotion. If you don't know, the markets are driven by two major things: Fear (of Loss) and Greed ( for gain) pension funds, holders of massive amounts of stock can (and do)  unload stocks. The prices go down! The average joe sees his stocks value lumetting. What wiil he do? He'll sell it. Those sharres move into the hands of traders who are willing to pick up "joe's shares at … (1 comments)

stock market: Builder Stocks-Portfolio Update - 09/22/08 03:16 AM
Peek into the future. What is the market telling us. This morning there are people who are buying stock. Or if you're negative, you can say people are putting their money under their mattresses.
Expect volatility but soon this market will be oversold. In spite of this, our builders' portfolio is ahead--remember this is a paper trading portfolio.
I sold Orleans Home Builders and did not replace it yet. We're up 9.63 % as of last Friday.  
Yes, the problems are mountains to climb. But we can choose to look down on the valley or up to the mountaintop there … (1 comments)

Historic Chart of the Market
You are an intelligent person. What does this chart tell you? It tells me that historically that the markets go UP and UP.  A 5% loss in a market at say 12,000 is 600 Points. A 600 point loss in a market that trades at 2500 (1994) is far more significant then that same 600 points today.
From 1994 until 2001 I was a day … (4 comments)
