Now Ken Lewis is talking about getting out soon. He might stay on until they repay the debt. We'll see. S&P back up to 708 hanging on so far.

Something about all of this market action just isn't sitting well with me. We haven't had nearly as bad of news as we had at the end of last year. Yet all these markets the world over are sliding like mad? Something is up and we just don't know what it is yet.

That's why I was wondering if there was one or two heavy hitters moving things around. If this is the case, they alone could control close. It seems as though the S&P is slipping and recovering in minute by minute increments, that doesn't make sense to me. Thoughts?

Well...as the share number gets smaller, change numbers equate in a larger % move overall...

Sorry for my ignorance, but I’ve heard somewhere, that if DOW drops below 3k the US industry & economy will shut down, pulling the rest of world into a black hole. Is that true?

This might be a simplistic view, but I've been watching this thread since it started, along with all the old financial threads (Karl Denninger, Reinhardt, ect.) since the first big bailout and market turmoil. There won't be a single day crash, we'll continue to see a gradual slipping with enough ups and downs to get everyone used to the ride. Slow descent with enough small shocks to switch the focus and attention at all the key intervals. It's a conditioning exercise.

If you guys remember correctly a bunch of economist predict a huge flop in the markets in mid March.

It's march right now! This might be the beginning.

Soon our kids will be asking for more allowance money because they cant afford the candy they bought before!

I knew that, but, that's not what the Fed is spouting...how can we have a controling interest in some "transaction" that isn't even legal?!?!
I thought the Fed could only swap assets for debt or am I missing something?

Beware the Ides of March. That's the 15th for anyone that doesn't know.

Superstitious me? No, of course not! Whatever gave you that idea?
