So how much will the DOW drop tomorrow if Trump goes on to win? Let's hear it folks.

I'm saying -800 at least.

Markets are tanking in Asia. They're going to tank big here. I REALLY wish I had moved my 401k around a bit last week.

I underestimated just how much white males hate Hillary Clinton.

Best advice I've seen:

Don't make a really big mistake tomorrow and sell your stock. You will only lock in a loss.

"The time to buy is when there is blood in the streets."

I'll say the Dow opens down 550 points from yesterday.

Well I'll be damned. I've been wrong about this too. Maybe I should just shut the fuck up for a while! <-- clearly going for thumbs on this one as I have no intention of shutting the fuck up

Time to breathe a sigh of relief and move on.

As of 11:40 a.m. CST, DOW up 167. S&P and Nasdaq also up. Hong Kong and Japan markets dropping. Brits and German markets are up a little.

Just sayin'....

Yep, I was wrong. American markets didn't follow Asia's lead.

And it is continuing to make steady gains. This is unprecedented, really, the day after an election. Especially an election whereby the president changes party.

I wonder how much of it is driven by the overall increase in such companies as Vulcan Materials, Inc. and Martin Marietta Materials, Inc., which are both up around 9.3% as of this posting. (In case you were wondering, those are the companies that make the stuff that is used to build things like "walls" and "barriers").

Companies that do major infrastructure work as well are doing better this morning. Vulcan and Marietta are included in that.

Thanks for the rent-free space in your head. Would have been nice if you'd cleaned it up a bit before you rented it out, though.

I thought this was going to be about Days of Wonder, and I was expecting to hear about a new variant on Ticket to Ride.

Heh.

Paul Krugman, allegedly an economist. Last night:

Quote:
It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover?

Frankly, I find it hard to care much, even though this is my specialty. The disaster for America and the world has so many aspects that the economic ramifications are way down my list of things to fear.

Still, I guess people want an answer: If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.


How can the New York Times continue to employ people who are consistently wrong about . . . everything?

They're politically correct. That's what counts, right?
