DOW UP UP AND UP

Reply
 
Jeremy W....I see you had no report on the Dow being up almost 500 points yesterday...So I figured I start this thread for you to voice how happy you are that the country is making a slow but steady positive turn around with my boy in command. He is about to fix health care next....you never know after health care is fixed that might leave a little extra money to either research your Napolean Syndrome or even devlop a Growth Hormone based steroid just for you DUBYA....Ill right him a letter about your situation and see if he can help. I would ask you to put it in the mail box for me ....but we both know you cant reach it. LOL...Have a good day DUBYA

Now Elle I took it from all your reports that you were an older person 30's-40's-50's ish. We all know that if you watch the stock market on a daily basis you will go crazy and throw your self off the nearest bridge. You should have save this report till 6 months from now when it has gained on a steady basis and grown. As you can see on yahoo, the market has started off and dropped 75 points and the day has just began. Now don't get me wrong, I hope for all our sakes it goes straight up and pokes a hole in the ceiling, but I doubt it, for it will take time, but I don't think this is the start of our recovery just yet. Next comes the extreme inflation, where milk cost you 10.00 a gallon and then they will want to increase the min wage up to like 10-11 bucks an hour...I hope for all our sakes I am wrong.
Now JW why don't you make us all happy and post more pictures of your FisherGirlFriend, the one on the pro circuit. Please...

Well I had a great two weeks investing...I have made back every penny I've lost since bush crashed it. Im rolling 75% back out into secure investmens this morning and now I dont have to sweat retirement anymore. These last weeks have been very positive but Me and a few colleagues have been seeing it coming for about a month now...finally all panning out. It would not surprise me to be back above 9000 by july 15th and rising...thats most of the long range forcasts Ive seen anyway. Better get in while its cheap DUBYA....Even though he hates Obama and cant stand most of what I say and think on here...a special thanks goes out to "that_just_happened"(TJH)...you have been spot on with your advice and my family thanks you.

Keep drinking the Kool Aid
Any money that was made will be tax and taxed. Lets see your school system is a mess, but the ones you vote for send their children to special schools. You man again went to a special schools. They also have a special retirement plan and have private jets and million dollar vacation homes. The people that vote for them spend more than half their lives standing in lines for some of this free money give away. Only good thing is if you sent you children to the special schools they will have a big jump when they start off in the business world. I sent my 3 sons to private school all own their home, and have a college education. One serviced in the Navy and get this my wife and I had to pay our money to go see him during his service to his country. We did not have fema money like the ones had to go see the saints. If you are happy with the school system,retirment, and paying taxes keep drinking the cool aid.

Recovery??
Elle, clear this up.. How can you say this is good its still way down, actually its only recovered 33% of what its lost since he got in.

And how could you have made back what you lost in full. You had to be down 50% like the rest, how did you make that much back in 2 weeks. Please inform us so we can learn from the master..

But for the record averything he is doing is destroying the country, we will be sociailist and i guess that is what you want. We will be in massive debt, you cannot spend your way out of problems. This is a bear market rally, plain and simple..

who's crack pipe have you been using?
sorry, i don't normally say negative things on here, but elle you have gone too far. you claim over and over you're a republican at heart, but the party has gone soft on you. now you say obama is going to fix health care? if you mean tax us back to the stone age then i guess you're right. socialized medicine doesn't work. look at canada, paying 55% taxes. why work? why work overtime? there's no incentive to do so. switzerland pays 75% taxes. they don't make a darn thing, except pocket knives. when doctors don't have a reason to see more patients (more money), they don't care if they see one patient, they get paid the same. nobody wins, the patients wait months or years for treatment, and by the time they are seen more problems have risen. not just my two cents, fact.

Well guys if you were dumb enough to lose 50% of your investments a while back then you were just ignorant...just cause the overall market is down doesnt mean there isnt money to be made..its out there to be made right now...your next billionaires are making there moves as we speak...FOLLOW THE MONEY

Remember this
Better to be though a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. With all the experts telling you to hold on how could you sell. Lets see if you sold Friday you would have lost all the gains Monday. Please post went to buy and sell so we can make all our money back like you did. Remember this if you sell for a profit there is a tax called capital gains and it will be going up soon.

Elle, that didn't say nothin. Ain't know way you made ya money back in money markets and CD's. Unless you put it in those when it was at 13,000 and just got back in you are lying. If you were even in conservative markets you lost a good 25%. Now the market in the last 2 weeks is only up 15%, ain't no way you made it back doing that. Unless you made some solid investments you are full of it..

How stupid am I and the money market experts
Lets see the people that have been in this business for their working life lost about 40 to 50 percent after you man got in. How stupid are they they should have known to sell when the market went down 10% one day and buy back in Monday when the market went up 10%. Boy it is so easy when you post what to do thanks.

troutass I can see your not following the conversation. The point was you had more than ample time to pull your money in to ira's and cd's before the market went completely belly up. I did that last year and saved myself a great deal of grief. But I did not pull it quick enough and I lost around 15%. In the last couple of weeks some really good investments in the open stock market have allowed me to rebound that 15% loss from last year and a little pocket change to boot(lookin at a new toy just dont know what i want yet). I took some advice and followed a couple of trends for about a month me and a couple of friends. Two weeks ago was the low cycle of a few stocks of interest so we invested and like clock work the jumped through the roof all five stocks nearly doubled in price...They should fall back some this week so we rolled our money back out this morning before there free fall. Guys its not rocket science. the entire dow does not have to come up a significant amount to make money....find the stocks that are driving these spikes and catch them low and rebound....its all a cycle...ride it.

Most people did lose 50% and that is obvious as the market is down that much. This little rebound hasn't done much for them yet so screaming victory already that you got your money back is kinda ignorant. U only lost 15% not that much to make back.

FINANCIAL EXPERT?
I have a question, what about all the people who have a bulk of their retirement tied to their 401K? These are not bounce in and out accounts, you either have to quit, get fired, turn 59-1/2, have hardship or die to get the funds out. I think anyone who comes on here and tries to convince others they are stupid because they never pulled their money doesn't understand each persons situation, therefore is by no means a financial expert.

impossible....
elle.... ewww ..

it is impossible to make up ur losses in a cd, money market or other safety accounts. those are short term places for ur money to sit and "stop the bleeding". not for u to gain huge amounts... regardless of what the market is doing..
cd's and money markets are what people are rolling their money into inorder to ride out the current market.

yes its better to get a 3-4% guarnatee return than to loose 15-25% in the market. but it is IMPOSSIBLE get a return high enough to give u the ability to get on here and tell people u are recouping ur losses....

btw... are using the bernie madoff system???... maybe that s how ur getting huge returns...

trigger....what kinda of 401k does not have options inside it to move your money around to safer places??? Never heard of a 401k portfolio with any company that was not diverse enough to allow you to roll your money into cd's and ira's at the least. I actually talked my wifes sister (a school teacher) into moving hers early last summer before the big drop. Even state employees 401k has those options at a minimum.

Just from reading your thread I can tell you're a douche with a 2 inch pecker. You should edit out the parts that out you on the tiny wiener thing so we could all actually learn something about your investments and maybe get some good advice. I owe you a little respect though. It's good that there's somebody else on here who saw a great opportunity to make money. Please tell us what you have. I have aapl,goog, a few crazy ones just for gambling's sake-x,rio,prlax, and most recently, c. Teach me something about the market-seriously. If you mention one more thing about little man syndrome I might just snap so please quit being such a bastard.

Most 401K plans do have options depending how aggressive you want to be with your investment. I have seen some with low almost guaranteed returns whether the market is good or bad. The problem is a lot of people were earning and maybe because of a over inflatd market high returns and in order to get back to their previous balance can't go from earning 15-20% down to 2-3%. It will take 5 to 10 times longer to recover their loses. The best thing people who are not ready to retire can do, is leave it alone, quit looking at the dow all day and go out and kill some deer and catch some fish. Eventually the market will get back to near if not all the way to where it was and the value of the stock will be right there also. I don't know that much about 401K accounts, but don't think you can actually remove the funds to invest in CD's or IRA while still working for the company it's issued through. I also know from experience you can transfer 401K accounts from one employer to another pending usually a 1 year waiting period.

By no means I am an Obama fan but lets see how it goes. Sad thing is I know some people that hate him so much that they do not care if the market goes down even more just to prove a point.

If Bush would of did it then it would of been the best finincal move the country could ever made. I agree it sucks that we have to bail out banks with our tax payer money and then in turn he have to pay interest to borrow back that same money. Lets do this, let the banks fail---no more buying on credit per an interest rate and lets see how quicky this county will crumble plus you really want to see the stock market go down. One thing Capt JS are are one of the ones that hate Obama so much that I really think you hope the market gets down to 3,000 pts. Problem is greed with the bank CEO's and people over spending. This housing thing was not due to people on welfare making 30,000 and buying a 400,000 home. It was college educated working people making 150,000-250,000 a year spending 750,000 on a home and takin a second mortage for another home of 500,000 to rent as extra income plus driving each a 50,000 car and spending $ like there was no tomorrow.

Please don't go there
These banks were run by the give always government with Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. They told the banks you have to make loans to anyone to get government money. You are correct these guys were smart if the government wants to back bad loans we will give then anyone a loans and now you know the rest of the story. When will you kool aid drinkers start to blame the real problem the government can not run anything well. Please listen to me the government does not make money they only get money from us in taxes. I hate when someone talks about the government giving them help our tax money gives the help. Right now I see post that there are 8million people living in New York and only 41000 pay the taxes. Yea the greedy old rich people who in the US pay most of the taxes. No one wants to hear this 10% of the tax payers give more than 50 percent of the so called poor. I know friends that pay taxes, give to charity, support their schools and you and the government call them greedy and mean. Yet the guy that does not work has a cell phone and buys 4dollar crawfish with food stamps is a great guy. Did I hear or read that some people took the Fema money to go see the saints.

capt js what if you do not make over 500,000 a year you are not able to vote or what if you do not have a college degree, or what if you do not own at least 100 acres of land you cannot vote. You saying that if you do not pay taxes then you should not be able to vote is one of the most ignorant things I have ever heard. What about all the elderly people that live on a fixed income that do not pay taxes I guess they cannot vote either according to you. What about this what if you do not pay over 15,000 a year in taxes you cannot vote. That sounds like communism to me.
I know what the real problem is that you have with Obama but I will not give you the pleasure of going there. I am not a big fan of his but I am sick of hearing all this crap every day on this site from the same few people about him because of one reason and one reason only! I am done on this topic. Keep wasting your time about Obama if you want. If you keep letting it get to you your blood pressue may go up!
