There must be some good, decent white Republican who deserves credit for the increase.

Well, in his defense, he's a morally and intellectually bankrupt chickenshit.

Because the Obama economy is tanking, just like Fox News said it would.

Oh wait, GDP was up by an annualized 3.5%, which beat the consensus forecast of 2.8%. Dammit!

Just an update because Ned won't give one.

When Ned started this thread on 10/15/2014 the DOW started at:

16,400 and went down to 15,900 that day.

The stock market right now is at 17,300 roughly or a 8.81% increase from the start of this thread in a little over two weeks.

THANKS (Ebola) OBAMA!!!!

Just as an aside, I hate the whole practice in the business press of "explaining" any change in the markets (which, by definition, are always changing, right)? in terms of some simple, quasi-psychological "factor." "Markets are down on news that the President choked on a pretzel." "Markets responded to the news that WalMart is cutting all health benefits to its employees by rising 7%."

Talk about voodoo economics....

NPR Marketplace, I'm looking at you, too--don't give me that sneer of superiority. You're in there with all the others.

Dow soars 193 to close at a new record high (and the S&P sets an all-time high) on news that Kaci Hickox is still not contagious.

Maybe the market is overjoyed that Honore Traore has taken over for Blaise Compaore. Or it could be the recent ban on clowns in Vendargues, France, I suppose.

No, clowns still carry a lot of clout on Wall Street.

I just want to preempt Ned's inevitable crowing when the market most likely rises in the next year, as it has done so following the previous 17 midterm elections.

Stocks are falling faster than a bad facelift. Maybe Ron Paul is right. We better read Survival Blueprint.

Ron Paul Ads Warn of Financial Crisis

"Former Rep. Ron Paul is warning in television commercials of a calamitous U.S. financial crisis that could bring civil unrest and a stock market collapse—a crash “infinitely worse than the crisis of 2008.’’ He urges viewers to prepare by buying a “Survival Blueprint,” a book of advice from an investment research firm."

"Dr. Paul says we’ll also witness major changes to the very fabric of our society, because destroying a nations’ money in this manner wrecks businesses, friendships, and families, who simply don’t understand and aren’t prepared for what will happen."

Now's the time to buy more, not get out of the market.

Remember, it's buy low, sell high, not the other way around.

Assuming, of course, that you believe DJIA at 16,000+ is "low".

Why buy on the way down?

Wouldnt it be smarter to wait until an apperant bottom has been reached before buying? You might pay a bit more than the absolute bottom, but it would be less risky than trying to guess a bottom.

Yes buy when it's at bottom. But as you said, we don't know when the bottom is reached. Down -670 currently and below 16,000. It's falling faster than an egg from a tall chicken.

It isn't at the bottom yet, China is just the epicenter. By the end of the year it will be worse, but not just stock markets. Silver, gold, oil etc will all be at record lows.
