Stocks rallying hard now. S&P 500 up 7% from its intra-day lows.

Before you call a bottom, I suggest you consider the history of the 1971 - 1974 bear market.....

I would love to...sadly, we are broke as a joke. Just got done with a few years in the Army. We got three kids, 14 months of my husband being in Iraq, a chance to live in Germany where they hate Americans, and virtually no money to show for it. Had to sell our tiny mutual fund to buy a house, which (btw) we can actually afford. Imagine that—buying a house you can afford. Ha! Obama would be so disappointed in me! /s

Nah, Monday will be another rough one, then once it gets to around 7700, we’ll be good for a slow recovery.

True market bottom, or merely a dead cat bounce? I’m not sure quite yet.

This morning at the bottom (down about 700 pts) I had my finger on the mouse ready to click the buy button. That musta been what done it...

Keynes once said, “In the long run, we’re all dead.” Q for me is what happens last couple weeks of Oct. I’m saying we rally. But could go lower before going higher.

Wouldn’t that be a desireable outcome from Bwarney’s point of view?

Agreed. Guy on CNBC this morning said 8 would be the bottom and he actually sounded that he knew what he was talking about.

Time to buy. There are some real bargains out there. AAPL up over 9. I think I am going to buy. They said run up will be as fast as sell off. WHOO HOO!!

There seems to be a lot of cash on the sidelines, just waiting to pounce on a bottom. Look at the rally in the DOW right now, and look at the big bump in volumes.

This isn’t the bottom. There won’t be any recovery until the credit markets thaw, and they are currently freezing more by the day despite interest rate cuts and massive central bank cash infusions. The stock market is simply a sideshow - the real action is in the credit markets.

If Obama wins on Oct. 4th, I wonder what will happen to the market? Crash & burn, or go up like it did when Bill Clinton was elected?

Can the MSM just shut up for about a week? They are out there fear-mongering because it suits their candidates lies better. It should be a crime to do what they are doing!

AAPL is up because they announced a Tuesday unveiling of their new notebooks. AAPL will drop during the presentation.

The chart is a classic short covering ralley at the end of the week. Shorts have had an easy time for the past 8 trading days ... they are locking in profits and going flat before the weekend. They are afraid of good news over the weekend that could make the markets open 1000 points higher on Monday.

What we are looking for in a bottom is absolutely HUGE volume ... like 10x the average. We haven’t had that yet.

You will recognize the bottom 2 days after it happens, not 2 minutes.

LOL! Well, IMHO, Vegas is much more hospitable than this market has been of late. In Vegas, the odds are set as cameras watch to keep cheating at a minimum; and the occasional free adult beverage is pretty nice. On Wall Street, these days, I can't keep up with the constantly shifting indicators- aka odds; and I'm not sure anyone is watching the cheaters. Lastly, I've never received a comp from the greedy ba$tards running the investment houses! /sarc?
