wow, some things never cease to amaze me. last week, the dow dropped 770 points on news that the $700B bill had been shot down in Congress. today, the market was up almost 300 points at one point today, but fell over 200 points on news that the Congress passed the $700B bill. jesus, make up your mind! obviously a lot of the movement is fueled on rumors and speculation (its the sizzle, not the steak that moves much of the time), however this really does defy logic. the bill that the public and market so obviously wanted passed (as evidenced by market moves) gets passed finally, and the response is almost as defensive as the news that the bill was shot down. ugh. hurry up weekend.
