Re: Dow Death Watch

Definitly a crazy day. This was insane with p&g, hopefully none of you had a stop loss on it.

Re: Dow Death Watch

All my Trailing Stop Loss triggered, then I bought back the stocks at 2%-5% profit. This was great day for me.

Most of the time your posts are biased and easily dismissed. This time you're dead on accurate.

Re: Dow Death Watch

Germany is a socialist country with lots of social programs, I wonder why they haven't gone under. The Greek problem is two folds, decline in world wide shipping and tourism due to United States sub-prime crisis, and fraud on the part of the Greek government with the help of Goldman Sachs to mask their real debt.

Nasdaq Cancels Trades Made Over 20 Minute Period - WSJ.com

I just heard on the news that nasdaq is going to cancel trades made from 240-3pm that are:

"greater than or less than 60% away from the consolidated last print in that security at (2:40 p.m.) or immediately prior."

I dont exactly know what the means, or how they can even do something like that (legally and administratively). Apparently around 280 securities are effected? Tomorrow should be interesting. Did anyone see the cnbc clip where Cramer is being interviewed and they have Proctor and Gamble up on the screen and while their talking about it within about 45 secs the stock drops to 39 then back up to 60.

The German economy isn't a great one to compare with, it's a force and can support a hefty government budget because it derives so much of its GDP from exports. It's a central and critical transportation hub for traveling throughout Europe. And its citizens are highly educated and specialized, something Greece and Canada don't quite match up against.

You're right about Greece's problems and how they got into the mess to begin with. But their government's spending was unsustainable given their economy. The broader economic crisis did kill their shipping and tourism industries, which represent such a large chunk of what they need. While Germany has been able to weather the storm because of the mere size and diversity of their economy, Greece got crushed, and couldn't sustain a government of that size.

In the case of the United States, we're running a bigger deficit (as a % of GDP) than Germany is. We're not at the Greek level by any means, but nations can't continue heading down that road, or the piper ends up getting paid a lot more later than it would take to pay him off today.

Re: Dow Death Watch

Market surging back today thanks to the European Union's decision to back the Greece package. Hope nobody sold last week during the swings.
