The markets have taken a beating the past two days, with a loss of over 242 for today points as of 10:37AM, and over 200 points yesterday. I've sold over 18% of my equities since the end of May, because I anticipated (*a good guess on my part) that the market was too high for YTD. My guesses have been pretty good over the years.

I've also recommended to my wife that she sell some of her holdings last month - which she did.

Don't know how much lower the market will go after Burnanke's announcement about slowing and stopping the buying of bonds.

He's pretty dumb!

@cicerone imposter,
A financial pundit is telling us that he expects the market to stay at about this level. HOW DOES HE DETERMINE THAT?

Pretty stupid stuff.

@cicerone imposter,
US markets posted gains across the board, erasing most of their losses from the previous day’s sell-off, as a batch of better-than-expected economic reports trumped worries over a credit crunch in China.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 100.75 points or 0.69 percent, to close at 14,760.31, the S&P 500 gained 14.94 points to 1,588.03 and the Nasdaq Composite added 27.13 points to 3,347.89.

@Ritika Sharma,
Have you noticed yet that the rise or fall in the DOW isn't how most investments react? The DOW rose 56 points, and the Nasdaq rose 10 points, and my funds increased by a whole $41. Some times the DOW can drop around 56 points, and my funds will show an increase.

Funny how that works!

@cicerone imposter,
Wall Street stocks suffered their worst day since June on Tuesday, slumping in a broad decline as geopolitical uncertainty rose over a possible U.S.-led military strike by the West against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces.


The S&P 500 closed under its 100-day moving average for the first time since June 24, a sign of weak near-term momentum. The day's fall extended recent declines on uncertainty over when the U.S. Federal Reserve will start to slow its stimulative monetary policies.

@Ritika Sharma,
The reasons given for market swings are lost-leaders. Any intent on military action against Syria isn't the cause to affect the world markets.

Markets work on emotion, and emotion is not a reliable basis in which to make investment decisions.

That's Investment 101.

The S&P 500 and Dow snapped five-day losing streaks on Thursday on positive job market data but gains were limited as investors worried if Washington lawmakers would pass bills to avoid a government shutdown and possible US debt default on time.

The Dow Jones industrial average was up 55.04 points, or 0.36 percent, at 15,328.30. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index was up 5.90 points, or 0.35 percent, at 1,698.67. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 26.33 points, or 0.70 percent, at 3,787.43.

@Ritika Sharma,
My retirement investment funds have performed very well for YTD with a 15% increase. Adjustments are expected in the last quarter, but I'm not that worried.

U.S. stocks fell on Wednesday as shares of heavy-equipment maker Caterpillar and semiconductor companies tumbled after they reported earnings, ending the S&P 500′s four-session streak of record high finishes.
Results from Caterpillar Inc and Boeing Co, two Dow components, illustrated the quarter’s mixed picture of corporate results and outlooks, which have some investors worried.

@Ritika Sharma,
The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq ended lower on Monday while the Dow failed to close above its milestone level of 16,000 as stocks sold off late in the session following Carl Icahn’s cautious comments on the equities market.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 14.32 points, or 0.09 percent, to end at 15,976.02. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index slipped 6.65 points, or 0.37 percent, to finish at 1,791.53. The Nasdaq Composite Index slid 36.90 points, or 0.93 percent, to end at 3,949.07.

The Dow and the S&P 500 finished lower for the fourth consecutive session on Wednesday after investors found few reasons to make big moves, with uncertainty remaining over when the Federal Reserve will start to slow its stimulus.
Dow Jones industrial average slipped 24.85 points, or 0.16 percent, to end at 15,889.77. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index declined 2.34 points, or 0.13 percent, to finish at 1,792.81. But the Nasdaq Composite Index inched up just 0.80 of a point, or 0.02 percent, to close at 4,038.

@Lordyaswas,
I transferred 23% of my gains for this year into money market fund on November 29. My thinking was that my 20% increase in my funds was the best on record, and it seemed prudent to protect some of that.
