Damn, today the correction has begun!

I am tempted to buy some calls in case there is a quick recovery!

    It's days like these when I try not to look at my mutual funds for awhile! I agree though, if you have some money to throw at it, the next week or so would be the time.
    The only people we should try to get even with...
    ...are those who've helped us.

    Right 'round the corner could be bigger than ourselves.

    There is a formerly-profitable gambling equipment company called Shuffle Master....they made the mistake of announcing that their earnings are off.....20% decline on stock price!

    hopefully those on the sidelines who thought everything was overpriced will come to our rescue and start buying now that everything is on sale!

    Nobody panic...don't sell...we can ride this out!

    I'm suprized we don't see more posts on this. The stock market likely draws the greatest amount of propaganda with the US federal politicans being the only one close.

    Its interesting to see the lobbyists comming out with articles designed at swaying public opinion - those that are heavy in the market - and wishing to stay - encouraging all to be patient and not to sell - and highlighting all the signs that the longterm outlook is good

    while those that have pulled out or otherwise heavier in cash... highlighting all the negatives in hopes of further losses - bringing greater new opportunities...

    The investing public as easily led along as the voting public...

    ah what a funny country we live in.

    my guess is that many of the members of this board invest their dough in posters instead of equities!

    As some analyst said, it is time for Greenspan to go play golf and quit flapping his lips. He makes an offhand comment and Hong Kong goes nuts. I'm betting that the correction is short lived. A 3.5% correction is big news, but it will bounce back. Anyone who bails from fear at this point definitely realizes a loss. If you are an investor rather than a trader, ride it out. Things will turn back around. You don't lose (or gain) until you sell.

    Investors buy and hold. Investors buy on sound fundamentals and a belief that things will continue to work for a company. These people make sound financial decisions based on understanding of the company and their place in their particular industry.

    Traders play the moves. The company's fundamentals may or may not matter, but their potential for movement up or down based on their sector, or anticipated announcements, or chart trends create opportunity for the quick flip or short-term gain. This is where the notion of gambling on the market comes in.

    To call one or the other a pussy seems to me to not understand the role that both play. Over the long term, however, if one makes a sound investment, one is better off buying and holding.

    yeah i really don't disagree with you there at all. Financial Armageddon Fear Porn for sure.
    But I posted that link for the Jim Rogers interview video it contains, and there really is no opinon in the article in that link anyway. its a synoposis of the video, really.

    Regarding your allegation, even so, I find going to sites like that are helpful in that you know what you are getting. If I am looking for the "truth" regarding economic numbers and the global market news for the day, I go there. Better than having to run a google search and clicking 15 links. Better than MSN or any MSM site. You can (and I certainly do) take the opinions with a grain of salt, but simply for the charts and data they aggregate, it is worth the visit.

    I don't really have the desire to check Goldman Sach's bullshit advisories and reports day in and day out, so it's nice when ZeroHedge can cut through the bullshit, and bring you a chart like the one below, because, really, sometimes that's all you need. I mean, it kinda says it all, and you don't even need the opinions on the page. They've done the digging through the BS, and BAM ...

    Two more great finds by Zerohedge in the last few days ...
    just how much fear \ uncertainty is out there right now?
    Why THIS much:

    story here
    And the multi-TRILLION dollar question ...
    Just HOW much of the economy DOES the FED control?
    Do markets really LIVE AND DIE BY THE FED?
    Hmmm, YOU TELL ME:

    story here

    And a non-Zerohedge confirmation for the last chart, that they aren't just making crazy correlations (although it should be perfectly apparent at this point in history that they are correct, just in case, here:)

    Should we revise this thread?

    Is the correction coming again?

    Dow is down 700.

    Final call was 798 down.

    There is an article that talks about the T note and the trend it is in.  The last time this happened the global recession started.  This time around I will be paying even more close attention to the markets and the trends.
