Charlie Brown can't keep a good man down along with RDS. I can't believe I've missed so many days of trading waiting for world to have "the big one". We can't let the terrorists win forever. Best to all.
As long as interest stays down to nothing, looks like we can expect market to be up a day or so and then down, up and down, up and down. I put 3 kids thru college because we managed to save enough and drew some interest for each account to help a bunch even with tuition going up all the time and still is, but it will be tougher for our grand kids because their accounts are just what is being saved for them by their grandparents (us), because their parents seem to not be able to save anything. Taxes will continue up and my kids make more money than I ever dreamed of but they're poor at managing money just as our leaders are.
God save and bless America.
old pro......what you say is typical. Its because you were brought up by parents who struggled through the depression or the edges of it. Your kids, my kids, have no idea. Cardboard liner in my shoes. Black tape around a baseball. Mother sewed new collar on my shirt. Wash done by hand in a tub, put on an outdoor line. Frozen in the winter. etc., etc.
