Oct 17th now...or 3rd business day after bailout passes....which is like saying the second tuesday of next week. Because the bailout is never going to pass! It is a laughable proposal. Do you really think the avg senator or congressmen understands the problem. Do you want to trust the government to choose who get the benefit of the 700 billion.
Easy fix....Change "Market to Market rules" reinstate the uptick rule ,dilegently enforce the illegal practice of naked short selling with huge penalties which go into a fund to help support the refinancing of sub-prime debt at reasonable costs.
