Looking at hugh panic in global mkts right now. This is vey series. Australian dollar off almost 8.6% on the day against the USD. One bank said they are seeing literally NO BIDS in the Australian dollar, which is huge hugh considering that you can usually trade several million with the click of a mouse.

There, fixed it for ya.

Sorry just needed a little levity while our economy tanks and we embrace socialism.

Yeah, no one with a shred of common sense ever predicted this type of reaction to the $700,000,000,000 bailout. Nope.

Perhaps the markets are spooked at the thought of an Obama presidency. The markets have gone further south each time Obama’s polling numbers have gone up.

But but but, the President signed the bailout bill, after the House and Senate in a “bi-partisan” manner overwhelmingly passed it?

This is nothing short of the most massive cluster**** I have ever witnessed.

Anyone who voted for the bailout deserves to lose their next election.

Surely this can’t be happening? I mean those Senators and Representatives ignored us because they knew what was better for us. I can’t believe they would be wrong! /s

Nah, it’s cool. McCain, Obama, Lieberman, Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, etc. all came to our rescue. I’m sure the fruits of their heroic 8 a.m. labor are going to be along any minute now.....

Bailout didn’t work. lol Let the world understand how much they depend on us. We may fall but they will fall lower. Just wait till the economy in China collapses. They are going to hit rock bottom before this is over.

Australian dollar off almost 8.6% on the day against the USD.

It's the collapse of the commodities bubble. Australia's economy is dominated by commodities as well as Russia's. I imagine Canada isn't doing too well either.
