the extreme selloff in the first few minutes of the opening, was due to European, Asian, and other international funds automatic selling through computerized sold off close to 1100 on the dow, then bounced back to where it is at this moment minus 414

If it did that then it would have stabilized. 500 - 600 is right in the middle of the 1000 point drop that was the most extreme one this morning. It's at -508 now.

WTF Does Socialism have anything to do with a failing economic system based on Capitalist policies? America Isn't even close to a socialist country, If anything I could see the U.S veering towards inverted totalitarianism since private interests(e.g Oligopolistic Corporations and the like) have become more powerful than most if not all nation state's in terms of wealth.

Quite a bit actually.

PPT saved the day! That and lots of trading sites down or backed up, lots of mouth pieces saying to stay in, or buy the dip.

I figure we have a few weeks left of the illusion.

There is always somebody to blaim.

"I regret not having fled the market last week," said a retail investor who identified herself only by her surname, Zhang.

"With the market falling like this, there's no hope at all. It's already a bear market and the government is responsible," she said.

And now I need some more...

"The market tends to over react in either direction and needs to find a stable level before this rout can be stemmed. There is a lot of liquidity left and at some point investors will look at lowered valuations and step in."

... Pop-corn!

Personal opinion here, but I think the day traders and the like panic when this happens and cause more fluctuation. If you are focused on long term retirement, corrections like this have little to no impact on retirement funds, in the long run. If you are somebody who is living and breathing, trading every time you see a fluctuation, then yeah, you are going to be in a panicky breakdown.

"Dead Cat Bounce... 24 Aug. market move"

the 531 point decline on Friday will not be followed immediately by further declines... attributed to the emerging markets contraction & China's economy and Yuan crisis...As the new reserve currency added to the IMF basket of fiat monies problem that has been delayed until 2016...because it has a Gold component not yet required by the existing system

the PPT will go into overdrive so that a half-way stable equity market results... so that the mid Sept. rate hike can be implemented by the Fed-Treasury partnership

beware my friends



Just a reminder that I called for a dead-cat-bounce....

no matter if the DOW ends up in the black... it rallied from 1089 points DOWN earlier in the morning,

if the DOW does not improve from the present -110 deficit at 1 PM to positive territory at the close

I will still call the 990 point reversal a dead-cat-bounce...
THE PPT and the firecrew of Spin-Meisters went right to work and effectively turned peoples mind's
into this event being a GREAT BUYING OPPORTUNITY

again: ~beware my friends~

Fear the Walking Dead aired yesterday, just another coincidence I guess...

Everything is OK!

the market is heading south again -240.... at that close I would say it was not a dead-cat-bounce even if the dow rally were near + 850 from that -1089 market open

I have learned something with this. Maybe one day if I ever have the money to play with, I can take advantage of these kind of trends. As far as I am concerned there was some money to be made this morning when the stocks were tanking.

I like how your voice of reason when the majority of posts were doomporning the markets.

Well something is sure coming down as my husband got an 11 thousand dollar cut in his salary, (government salary), still while I worry I see it as the same old same, the working class will be made to pay for the shortcomings of the elite, if history repeat itself we will get screw again while the elite reap the bailouts, because let face it, we just let them do it.

I guess I will stock up on can food and ready to eat meals for that cut we just got

Well we will have to wait for sept 11 to see what is in it.

At what point will the news media stop using "points" and start using "percentage" declines to shock and awe the sheeple? At 16,000, it's shocking to hear an 1,100 point decline. But if the DOW eventually dips to 8,000 , it would be more dramatic to announce "The Dow dropped 6.25% today!", rather than "The Dow dropped 500 points today!". Now that people have experienced/heard of the 1,100 point drop, announcing a 500 point decline won't have the same shock effect, IMO.

Sorry to hear it. Money in the mattress too? I am under the thought it's always good to keep food and water stocked, end of the world or not. Never know when nature may show its ugly side. Hope the craziness of the markets , etc isn't hitting people too hard.

Down over 400 again. Boy, these are big swings today. What a moody market!

Yea, me too. It times of uncertainty and unease, remaining calm is ALWAYS the best solution. Maybe I really should get into stock trading... I certainly have no problems staying unemotional when the stress is on.

Yes, this was not so unexpected we had a hint it was going to happen, but is always that hope that it doesn't sadly it did, but my husband was not the only one, this downgrade in pay has been going on for quite sometime in the present economy and administration. My brother just lost half of his retirement, so perhaps we are not as bad as Greece yet, but the government has been doing its own version of austerity regardless.

At least is not as bad as the last time three years ago when my husband found himself unemployed for 3 months for the first time in his working life.

But is always light at the end of the tunnel, now with this news of the markets things are not so peachy anymore.

As I have been reading (because let face it I been off the grid for a while and have to read on what is been going on), it seems that like many had said it started with China central bank in June, they were able to divert their downfall using US and Japan method of bailouts with QEs, but that didn't last long enough, so the European central banks and Japan has been stepping in the last few weeks with QEs of their own to keep themselves from going down with China

So far is helping but for how long, before the great US markets been the originator of everything around the world goes down with it.

No good, so we should not be soo surprised remember we never really recuperated from the 2008 crash, the band aids are not holding the weeping wound anymore.

Let thank the European central banks along with Japan on that one, they are working hard with their version of QEs to keep things at a level and to avoid mass hysteria.
