This is why I don’t invest in the market, I just don’t get it, had I been in the market, I would have expected it to sharply spike up on this news.
CNBC screen message was that it was up 4 minutes.
About 2-3 minutes total
It’s called ‘Mehndi’. :-)
Say it ain’t so!
The headline should have been
“Workplace violence” at the white house lol
LOL at the fools who believed it..if there had been an explosion at the White House we wouldn’t have needed a tweet from the AP to prove it
I was watching the Fox biz channel when this was going on, and I need to go change my underwear. It dropped 100 points so fast that the talking heads didn’t even notice what was going on.
As Hillary would say: What difference does it make?
I bet CNN’s White House Correspondent sitting in the White House Press Room called Jay Carney to confirm whether or not there had been an explosion in the White House.
Huh? I would think that an explosion at the WH would be interpreted as good news for the markets. A world free of that marxist POS would be a lot more prosperous. Even Biden would be an improvement over our evil commie.
I had an order in to sell some RIG calls for 1.43 and it was sitting at 1.41 and moving my way. Within 1 second it was 1.15 and moving down. It has recovered now to 1.25, but that’s a long way from 1.40’s. This is my income money for the month. I hope I get another chance today.
i would have the opposite would happen...an immediate peak to a new record and then once in sunk in that the liar thief bernaccccky might have to stop ruinning the dollar and forcing a false run to stocks, that it would start tanking to the bottem!!!!!!! just a thought!?
Whether a senile evil commie is preferred to a non-senile evil commie is, IMHO, not clear.
I don't think it took a dive over Obama supposedly being injuried. It probably took a dive because it meant Uncle Joe would be taking over.
