I have to admit the 600 point comment was an upper limit number. It would take an extraordinary announcement to achieve that number.
Mostly the 600 figure was made to combat the idiotic 500 point drop prediction by smitty. I achieved my objective. He felt so intimidated by the prediction that he tried to remove the post. Didn't work. Cheers and GLTY.
First, the Fed minutes are always released around 2:00 pm....not 11:15am.
Second, what kind of garbage is this when you say the dow will be up 600 points when the Fed says they are again buying back securities? It isn't going to happen....and if the Fed took any action today...which they won't...it would not have the crazy results you have posted.
