    AXP reversal !

    If Miss Monica is the real reason for the Dow's
    decline, then I have no answers for you... *I* didn't
    panic and sell just because one of Clinton's "bimbos"
    "erupted".

    I always thought it was the other way
    around, wasn't Bill supposed to ERUPT? She must not be as
    good as we thought.

    • ken fisher, a forbes columnist and author of
      several books, wrote "The Wall Street Waltz" in 1987 (i
      believe). it it my favorite market book and is a series of
      100 chart such as the dow relative to interest rates,
      relative to capital spending, relative to gold, oil,
      employment, pe, sunspots, skirtlength, etc. you get the idea.
      the book goes back many years, covering times when
      the railroads where similar to the internet stocks of
      today or the situations when market panics occurred
      during the past 300 years. one chart is the dow relative
      to unexpected historical events like jfk
      assaination, nixon impeachment, declaration of war,
      clinton/lewinsky, etc. the finding is that any effect on the market
      is very short-lived if it exists at all.
      that's
      the beauty of this book, it's all graphs and dispels
      many popular misconceptions. unfortunately, it only
      covers up to 1985 or so but is still fascinating.
