    S&P Breaks 730 Support

    Mother of all Bear Markets; will it ever stop going down?


    "As bad as things are, they can still get worse, and get a lot worse," said Bill Strazzullo, chief market strategist for Bell Curve Trading. Strazzullo said he believes there's a significant chance the S&P 500 and the Dow will fall back to their 1995 levels of 500 and 5,000, respectively

    Its next to impossible to respond to this thread without making a statement with political implications, so I'll pass on doing so.

    Re: S&P Breaks 730 Support

    Can we stop all the doom and gloom and 'catastrophe' crud for a few minutes ?

    1) 90ish% of people that want a job have one. In the Great depression unemployment was > 20%

    2) The vast vast vast majority of people are paying (fully and on time) their mortgages, auto loans, credit cards, student loans, etc...

    3) The Chinese and the oil sheiks are still funding our Federal governments spending spree

    4) Oil/Natural gas prices are the lowest in quite awhile

    5) The president's day car sale is STILL GOING on at GM so you can still get a good deal on a car that probably has less domestic content than my 2007 Acura TL does.

    6) Spring and Summer weather are coming soon !

    since then theyve changed the definition of unemployment and how they count unemployed workers. were we using the system from back then, we'd be at a much higher %

    I agree with the need for a change in Psychology, but the smart money is running out and away from the stock market - and that serves as a proxy for economic performance 6-months out.

    If the current group running the country cared about the stock market, they would have changed some of the old rules by now. My take is this is just more crises to do their thing.

    This is still not even remotely close to the Great Depression. Even if it were 16.5% like the guy in the article suggests, that is still a long ways off from 25%. Ask any octogenarian what the Depression was like (or think back to history class).

    That was in Year four in 1929-1932. We are only in Year One.
