Market Update (Dow 10,810.35 +50.92 - Worst Economy Ever!)
Yahoo! ^

Posted on 12/22/2004 7:51:51 AM PST by frog_jerk_2004

10:35AM: Market gets a boost following better than expected weekly oil inventories data... Crude supplies rose 2.1 mln barrels (consensus -800K) while distillate stockpiles came in at +600K (consensus -1.13 mln)... Stocks had been trading with a tinge of caution ahead of the data as broad-based gains that pushed every major indice to new highs yesterday had stalled early momentum... Showing some resilience have been homebuilding, materials, financial, airline, networking, retail and utility while sectors under early selling pressure have been disk drive and energy...NYSE Adv/Dec 1612/1226, Nasdaq Adv/Dec 1442/1264

I'd like a recount. There is clearly fraud involved here.

Not ever, just since Herbert Hoover. Get your facts straight. ;)

Lord, how the '70s sucked. I feel sorry for the young folks who buy into all that media spin about Carter and have no idea what it was like in America back then.

Memories.....

I loved the time in the late 70s when my Mom would drive me to practice and we had to sit in a gas line.

I really enjoyed watching my parents plan their week around the last number on the license plate being odd or even.

I went into uncontrolable laughter when my parents complained about the interest rates and inflation.

How about Carter's "Malaise" speech that ran on all 3 channels and PBS?

What great memories....

If only the kids today could've seen the results of true liberalism.

The economy finally sheds the Kerry/Carville concocted slump.
Recall the snides, laughter, belittling that Bush received by those two propagandists and supported by the elite mainstream media for announcing his projected job growth.
He accomplished what he said.
Are corrections or apologies forthcoming?

Christmas Rally....a good thing nonetheless.

I expected DOW 11K summer 03 but I was wrong.

No doubt that oil is down and folks abroad will be buying more US goods due to cheap $$.

Who knows?

Up looks better than down...that we all know.

The big gorilla will remain terr attacks....that we can't manage.

There was no summer rally because the MSM was feverishly trumpetting the bad side of every piece of economic news in order to get Lurch elected.

Don't forget skyrocketing food prices and farmers drowning their chickens.
