Penny, you mention VEINS; the DOW has it Cath in my 401K sucking the life blood out of it lately. All that had been recouped is spilling and its like mopping up liquid mercury and trying to put in back in a bottle..
To much doom and gloom lately in the reports. Whats that saying, "What goes up, must come down"?

Not Penny, but I have always said the mess isn't over yet in my humble opinion.

Peter, I feel your pain with the 401K as I'm in the same boat. I wish I was doing well and on a ship feeling all happy without a care in the world.

Dwayne, make that a very, very, large ship as many of the Cruise Chat members probably need to be on board as well...Make me a large island drink and play the music!

Looks to be another down day. For perspective - the Dow is closer to it's 52 week low right now than it is the 52 week high.

Something I thought that was odd the last two days is that BP's stock actually went up. I guess the $26 level was the bottom so far. I want to buy some Chimera "CIM" at these levels as it now has an 18% yield, but I'm too chicken.

You're so right, peterl. Unfortunately, it's going too far down. Like I've said before, I don't have any extra to put into 401s or stock, so I haven't lost there. BUT....it sure trickles (flows) down quickly. Next they'll start jacking up gas prices and food prices again.

What, are we headed for 8000 again? I'm so glad I didn't put what little I have left in it this week.

RCL stock at 42! I bought it at around 7. I've finally gotten back above my principal in all my accounts. At least I am not in negative territory.

It looks like the economy is going to be "job one" for a while--and the markets will hopefully reflect that; here's where patience pays off.
