I predict that the next 2 big crashes are the retail-service sector and manufacturing I will post my entire hypothesis later... coming right after christmas and the 4th quarter earnings come out in Janurary...

what sites are you guys using to track the Dow?

I'm using CNN, but it appears to be more sluggish on the updates than the sites you're using.

Manufacturing is already crashing . . . that sector has gone to the government on various occasions asking to be 'bailed out'.

At each turn, the goverement has expressed their loath to stick their noses into the marketplace, much to the chagrin of the hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their jobs in that sector.

Yet as soon as the bankers and corporate shills scream financial ruin, the coffers opened up in spades!!!!!!!

So much for the claims of saving 'main street'.

The next market to go belly up will be the auto industry followed closely by many facets of retail.

Then the motherload....the credit card companies.


If people arent paying their mortgage notes you can best believe they could care less about those credit cards at 32%.

maybe so, but which area of manufacturing are you talking about? cant be military, we've got a war to keep up

are you talking about housing, vehicles, or anything of that nature?

Its not the Market Folks! Focus on the credit freeze as we have become a full blown credit based economy in the past 50 years; and right now we are operating on "fumes".

The market numbers are just social/emotional reactions to the fact that we are out of credit.

I whole heartedly agree with you.

People will start saving money and curtailing spending. After that, the retail markets will see trouble as discretionary spending drops when people only begin to purchase enough to survive.

After the Retail markets plummet, Manufacturing will decline, as demand for the goods they produce drop.

that is a very sound prediction kupo! I hadn't even thought about that. We've only seen the financial sector decline, and haven't yet seen the overall broadening impact of the economic crisis yet.

Average joe will feel this big time... i'm gonna hide under a rock...

Real men know how to do everything they can. Real men dont like to have to rely on anyone to do something.

My maternal grandfather was a Marine during WWII and the boxing champion in his company....and he made absolutely the most moist and delicious chocolate cake you could get your hands on. Drove my granma nuts when we would beg him to make it for us as kids.


Real men dont talk about what "real men" do.

I guess i should just stop hitting the refresh button and then i would not be so shocked on how much it has fallen in the past few seconds -384 i understand that it will be all over the place But IMO i think it will close around -900 points today

but hitting refresh is so much fun.


I think I'm going to predict a close of about -650.

depends on how much further GM drops. If GM drops significantly, they may be forced to declare bankruptcy. That IMO will be another death knell.

they should just play taps instead of ringing the closing bell today...
