I expect a bumpy ride, am not looking for a crash. We own it, things will eventually improve.
I am not into watching it every day. I just buy and hold on financials. One could go
nuts day to day  in this market... I have researched a few and will talk about them
 
on the AIG/Citi thread in a few days..after I buy.
 
(Cramer bought Citi)

Yeah..  My numbers are obviously too low because the market isn't crashing, and it's actually doing good. 

Cramer bought Citi??

Yes :)     You can watch his videos on....   www.thestreet.com
 
It is common to not advertise the stock until after it's bought (to keep purchase price low)
 
A while back on this thread I mentioned that people may want to buy ....at that point, in
 
my opinion, Jim was dissing the banks.   (Except for JP Morgan and Bear)

Okay-I'm getting one of those- whatever's that my wife so hates that we may be headed for some downtimes.. worse than before.

Bluebird is a pragmatist. She does not believe in most things supernatural - which includes my grandmother's vivid dreams and legendary precognition. She does not believe in the "Shine" or when I tell her I just have this gut level feeling. Of course, I told her in 20 minutes Skye was a reality. She went through 8 pregnancy tests and looked at 8 pink lines before she would believe.

So, as an outsider unschooled in the mystic arts of Wall Street I am watching the Dow creepoing down and I am thinking.. we were warned that someday 7000 would seem like Dow heaven. Someday at 4000 it really would seem like heaven.

Yes, it is fun times for the high rollers as we bounce between low low 7000 Dows and 8000- time to make money. During the Great Depression some made millions.

So- what say the Wall Street Seers- is it going to be bull or bust?

Obama did his mini thing- and they are waiting in the wings to crank out a trillion more dollars. Inflation is afraid to happen.

How does it look from here until the end of June. Are we about to have a big slide- or will it just stay stock market PMS for the next two months?

Just curious.

That kinda answers it :)
 
seriously, China has a lot of money....they are tossing it about and as soon as the US
 
Govt. and the banks stop firing at each other, and shape up... we will see some good returns.
 
Since China has the bucks and the people to Buy- I am going to step onto that wagon.
 
I have researched a stock that includes several countries, the US in not in the bunch.
 
All will be revealed ....  :)
 
 
ps...for a sec. I thought I saw Bluebird is pregnant..... turns out she's just practical.

hello W.B.  :)
 
I'm not sure what's ahead, but I'm open to ideas...like I said...I'm betting ... on Canada and China and the ol USA.
 
 
this sounds...good.

The United States, the world's largest economy, accounts for about 22 percent of global output, and China around 7 percent. The combined impact of the massive stimulus programs should make a difference, economists said, in cushioning a recession that appears to be bottoming out in the United States and some other countries.
"At present, the world economy is at a critical moment of moving out of crisis and toward recovery," Wang said, speaking through a translator.

I think it's funny that we've been hearing that "We're at the bottom" since the middle of the year last year. Oh and confidence is up and we're saved! The politicians and bank economists are either idiots or are the problem. I just heard it again this morning on the BBC.

I keep seeing more and more businesses going belly up, I do not know how it is where you live but around here, the shopping centers are emptying out, Office space has the same problem and around 38%of the office buildings are either in foreclosure or behind on payments.  Large condo complexes are finish and no one is closing on any of the units, so they sit empty.  The crazy thing is i still see condos, new shopping areas and some new home construction going on.  And that is the report from the front line in Vegas.  Of course, if I was reporting from Washington, I would put a different spin on this and tell you we hit bottom and we are in the middle of a recovery and it is raining outside and a rainbow is over the complete city.

I agree with you 4=laro. I also see some fairly big businesses in our area closing. Small companies are closing also. So where is all this recovery. The talking heads on CNBC said that 550k that lost jobs last month was not bad...unless you were one of the 550K.

This country is in a big mess...today everything gold, oil, markets, treasuries,all went up. So I guess everything is great until the next big FALL. Oh well!
Always Be Prepared

Want to read something funny? Or is it pathetically unbelievable?
Associated Press had a story today saying that Saudi Arabia expects financial aid if most of the world stops using oil! The IEA says that OPEC countries will make more money in the next few years but SA says that that is a lie and that they will lose $19 million dollars and will need aid.
The Saudi government has not contributed any aid in the past to any cause except that which promotes Islam. They spend millions building mosques all around the world and they call that international aid. I'm sure all the starving people in Sudan (a moslem country) sure do appreciate all those mosques, especially the Christians.
Altering the law is unlikely to be sufficient for change in the presence of a pervasive culture of corruption.

"This is very serious for us," he continued. "We are in the process of diversifying our economy but this will take a long time. We don't have too many resources."

I remember watching a clip on the massive spending by a wealthy Arab head of state.... after he mentioned all his new ideas (very grand they were) An Arabian woman in a head covering spoke rather bluntly (I was surprised) she said basically.... that there was a lot of spending without enough forethought.
 
 
She was most likely thinking about education and health...
 
 
Educating the people and setting up a strong economic base for the lean years down the road wasn't in the cards.   fun  fun   fun.
 
 
No one saw beyond oil.
 
 
They can still get serious.     (we are determined to use alternatives to oil)

Was watching cable and they said the Dow is at a high bubble and after a 300 point plunge things are in a dangerous state. How dangerous? Are we likely see it crash down to 6100 from the dizzying heights it is at now?

Like we have been learning on this site, stock pile food, water and necesities incase we need it later.  Saudi Arabia should be following our posts and plan for a time when they dont have everything in abundance.   No reason they cant stockpile food for later use.  They can be installing solar electric with their abundance of cash, even installing desalting plants for a viable water supply.  It is easier to stockpile when things are abundant (money) then to try to do it when you are broke.  Look at the Chinese, they are grabbing all the raw materials they can get their hands on  and using their surplus dollars to do it.
