This is very worrying. The Dow Jones has dropped to a two-month low by falling 214 points:




DJIA 12716 -214 (-1.65%)

Actually why is this worrying? They all need correction of some 10 per cent or more.

You guys are ridiculous. It was less than a year ago that it was teetering on 10,000 on and off and everyone was calling the crash. Here we are, way above 10,000 and people are calling a crash.

Get a grip on reality.

Yup, just when this started this morning, CNBC talking heads were noticing the sudden drop and change in technicals and during the cut to commercial swore on air when they looked at the charts.

lol a 1.65% drop is nothing, its a small correction if that.
The markets will probably drop further in the next few days but its still just a correction from a heavily overbought market.
Everything is normal at the moment.

This.

It doesn't take a lot for a government to pump this up a little and make it go away.

But, there is also a greater chance of Spain needing a bailout, Greece defaulting on it's debt, or a revolution in a European nation (and the chances of all three happening at once are remarkably high too), and if that happens when the markets are weak it won't matter how much money a government pumps into the system. It'll be like trying to pump up a burst balloon.

Relax, the crash will come. It is inevitable. Spain is a ticking bomb, and their bond yields have already passed the indicator mark for a bailout, one that would not be affordable by the Euro nations.

Imagine, we already know that Greece will need another bailout or it'll leave the Euro currency. This is not theory, it's fact. The Euro nations can afford this with the money they have in place.
But with Spain now indicating a bailout for them is likely too, this will be an impossibility.

Either Greece, Spain or Portugal will be leaving the Euro this year, what that means for the rest of us is open to debate.

In general, the Dow trend is up except for the end of the tax season (mid April - end of May) when all those checks go to the IRS and the "Autumn fall" (start of September - end of October). Remember that this is an average across many decades and that the "Autumn fall" does not always come to be as was the case in the 1910s and 1940s. In the 1990s, the "Autumn fall" has started one and a half months early.

200 points is a small correction. If you had added a zero on to the end of that ... 2000 points .. then I'd say there was something to be taking attention of. But not 200. That's just another day at the stock market.

The stock market goes up and down. It's nothing to worry about. The profit takers see a way to make money. The retirement pensions can somewhat stabilize it because people are penalized from removing them. The stock market is a risky venture, most businesses stock far exceeds the value of the assets of the companies. Why people invest in these companies is puzzling to me. Why pensions are invested in these high risk companies is puzzling to me too. Must be something to do with campaign contributions and the media or just the desire of people to gain wealth without actually working. Puzzles me how this scam has lasted this long, especially since the same scenario was evident before the great depression. Oh well, it may be better to invest in stocks than the government that is supposed to be watching after it I suppose. Boy, I ramble on mindlessly with my thoughts on my posts, I gotta quit doing that.

You do realize that if you have not reached that magic age you will get hit with huge penalties on top of the unpaid income tax? Don't you???

Always always.

Remember to buy low and sell high!

SHTF for a 200 drop on the dow jones

then the SHTF already happened hundreds of times


When it will be a 2000 drop in a single day
the famous expression will be maybe more appropriate but even then

SHTF = When all Hell break loose on earth
we should be carefull when we use that term
