A second recent analysis of this test pretty much reflected the reference of yesterday and my views. We need to better focus on the other 4 R's to prevent crime, reduce drug use, etc. If you have any kind of potential to save Planet Earth and Humanity, I implore you to click on that second recent analysis.
Eight years and one day after the stock market crash of 1929, the Dow Jones Industrials sunk 250 (2.5%) to 9713, while markets in the Orient rose and Europe fell. Black Tuesday, 29Oct1929, saw a drop of 31 (12%) to 230, which, actually, was not as bad as 24Oct1929, when there was a decrease of 38 (13%) to 261. Could Monday be monumental? A 13% fall would amount to minus 1263 to 8450. Only a little more than seven months ago, on 9March09, the DJI settled at 6547, so there is a long way to go. I'm actually looking forward to a minor crash, for that is the only time I buy. Finally, today, crude oil also fell, $3/barrel, to $77, and gold remained unchanged at $1046/toz.
Typhoon Mirinae, at 95 MPH, made landfall in the Philippines, and is heading straight to Manila. The storm is moving quickly enough that rainfall will be high, but should not be devastating.
