Actually, what you said about the Fed is not crazy at all. I agree with you entirely. Not raising the rates after the last meeting was worse for the stock market than raising them. Why? Because the market hates uncertainty more than it hates interest rate increases. I am desperately hoping that they raise rates in November. It may cause a one day selloff, but after that I think there would be a great rally from the rest of November through January (even with Y2K concerns). And the stocks I think most likely to benefit from such a rally are those like ITXC that have a lot going for them fundamentally (good company and good industry) but have not had extraordinary runups like many other recent IPO's.
