11942. on Nikkei Heikin. now only 45 points up, so fairly weak opening (I guess one could say). It is slowly going south, bit by bit. One minute later, now 11929.78.

Thank you for this. I find it interesting that the House Republicans are two hours and fifteen minutes late in starting their press conference. Disagreements?

Markets open down here in less than 45 minutes ....

The newspapers have been particularly rough over the weekend - fears are there is going to be a run on cash.

Tokyo just barely holding water, that is, very gently shifting back and forth to about 20 to 40 points above close from Friday. not a disaster but not a rally either...very tentative, wait and see attitude it seems. now 11923.86 at 9:19 a.m. Tokyo, 8:19 p.m. New York

dollar just BARELY stronger from last week close, by maybe 0.94. (106.2 yen to dollar).

Your #22 is a good sign. Thanks.

I expect the same thing here tomorrow.

The big deal is no panic. But then again we have Sunday night football and nobody is paying attention.

I am really starting to wonder since those that have read the bill say it includes ACORN, but the negotiators reportedly said specifically it didn’t. Seems like something is amiss.

now moving into even more positive territory, probably now that they know the socialist “fix” is in.... Tokyo..up 124 points to 12,017.64 9:35 a.m..... yes it will be a long day. Tokyo has been up for 35 minutes only. There could be a downward spiral on news of anything.

"Yeah see my raiders lose againnnn"

I pitty you being a raiders fan. Not much though. I'm a Steelers fan and we don't have much compassion for the raiders.

I don't know if you people over the pond somewhere get the scores. Early Chicago Bears 7 - Eagles just scored 7. Still first quarter.

The Australian market has opened exactly the same. Many stocks down, but very slightly. Some mild rises in oil and gold shares.

The weather is cool and cloudy in Sydney. It has been a cold Sept, no doubt due to global warming.

I don't know your reference. It isn't Barbara Jordan (I was a BIG fan of hers). Could be Larry the meatgrinder Flynt. Or the guy in Missouri that Joe Biden asked to stand up! Help me here.

In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.

The markets will all be up with the euphoria of this bail. What happens tomorrow or maybe even in the next week or two does not define the effect of this bill. Once the reality that this bill does nothing to solve the deeper problems we are going through then everything will fall apart again. And things will be even worse.
Someone pointed out that this bill allows Paulson or Ben or somebody to allow zero reserves at the banks. It sounds like The whole system is going to be drained by the rich and then they will let it all come down.
