Wait for tomorrow - more forced liquidations, some form of announcement in Europe (likely nowhere near enough as it can't be a 17 state decision), a UK bank with a *huge* greece provision, then we move to the US just in time for a Non Farms Payroll...

Tin Hat firmly on. Seatbelt fastened.

This just brightened up my day. Thanks :)
I don't doubt that we are not out of the woods yet. All 2011 gains wiped out... I may as well convert all my equities into pesos or something, the stronger currency :)

Just found this quote:
Quote:
"I'm just sorry to see my retirement going to hell," said Robert Slocomb, an 82-year old retired Kodak optical engineer in Rochester, N.Y. Mr. Slocomb blamed the government's handling of the economy for the stock market's woes.


I ain't no finance guru but should not this guy be in Bonds by the age of 82????? or should perhaps WSJ adopt a higher level of reporting rather than quote 82 year old guys gambling on stock market?
