I've got a feeling it keeps going down slowly until this useless Congress and Empty Chair extend the Bush Tax Cuts then you better stand back the big dividend stocks are going, as Jackie Gleason used to say Too the Moon!!!!!!
I'd watch the volume, when it returns to normal, its a signal that the panic selling is subsiding. I suspect we could fall another dollar, and don't expect a significant rebound until the government passes a budget. Hopefully we won't get another national credit downgrade?
