The markets are closed tomorrow, does this really mean anything?
When the markets open Tuesday, we’ll see how much it means. It’s interesting that they’ve fallen to -105 TWO days prior to the market open, don’t you think?
Looks like they're open.
expat - ping.
The stock markets are open tomorrow.
Heard that Boehner gave Obama what he wanted and Obama added amnesty.
The market is open tomorrow, 10/14.
For one of us, it means: "It's not so much what you don't know that will hurt you, it's what you know that ain't so."
This is no longer your father’s stock market.
I put no weight on what the market does, as it is now run by fat-cats with powerful computer programs doing the pump and dump. In a normal world, the market would have tanked long ago.
I’m sorry. It’s a bank holiday, government offices and post offices that are closed tomorrow. I jumped to a conclusion.
They are open.
What holiday? It’s Canadian Thanksgiving, that’s all I can think of.....
They are open. Columbus Day stopped being a decent holiday years ago.
No Worries some folks get upitty around here
Banks are open. They got rid of this holiday several years ago.
The thread is NOT supposed to be about what is open and what is closed, it’s about the Stock Futures Falling...
Some banks are open and some are closed.
It is a Federal Holiday, according to our local newspaper, but not an official holiday in every state (Michigan, for instance), so our state offices are open, some county offices are closed and Federal offices are closed. Many banks in our area are closed. Guess it just depends.
Market is open - Bond desk is closed tomorrow
part of what is going to happen tonight/ tomorrow is because CME has tightened margins - announced after the close.
Since federal employees are being paid to not work, and tomorrow is a holiday when they will be doubly not working, does that mean that they’ll get double time over time for not working on the non workday?
Most of the things you are seeing can be traded in other world markets — Australia, China, Hong Kong, etc. Tomorrow’s prices will be coming from markets in England and Germany.
Where did you hear that? That goes right in with the thought I have, that Obama WANTS the shutdown, AND the deficit, so he can spark riots with unfunded EBT cards... then when the cities are burning, use the Emergency Powers Act to become king for life.
In other words, if Boehner even did THAT... included AMNESTY... Obama would then say, "Yes... that's nice... but now I also want a total gun ban.".... and if Boehner brought him EVERYTHING, Obama would then say... "Very good... but now I want to seize the nations 401k programs."
So, where did you hear what you wrote?
Yes, I mean, no.
Didn’t think about that, but bet they will be getting holiday pay when they get the back pay. Depending on how long this goes, they could be getting TWO paid holidays when not working. (Veteran’s Day coming up soon)
Meanwhile the Thief in Chief and others are almost signaling that they want the market to tank soon.
Good. Bring it down. But the GOP should NEVER raise the debt ceiling. We can easily find enough CRAP in the budget to cut in order to pay the interest on our debt.
Don't you worry about that.
It’s October people.
Get a damn grip. Don’t you learn a damn thing year after year?
Ask yourself anything and see if you answer correct.
No more being foolish.
Don’t forget all that overtime for catching up.
What is tomorrow?
Dow futures at -106 now. One more point down.
been holding steady for a bout a day now, looks like a the consensus was a sneaky late Saturday nite RINO cave (it's what I was expecting) but didn't happen (from here)...
