I hope you guys took some of that BAC call, it was a bad move, and the street punished them for it. Paulson and Thain must have naked pictures of BAC’s chairman for that to have ever happened. AIG was all over the place and was the subject of chatter, rumors and fact all day long. $SPX and NAZZ broke important technical levels from July, and the $DJI is close. I’m not as obsessed with the breaking of the July lows for any of the indices anymore because I think we are going to 10,000 anyway. You guys read the papers so I won’t pontificate about the many reasons why.
The close was ugly until someone finally took the initiative and started to hit bids. I never heard an interview as scary as the one with Meredith Whitney late today on CNBC. The market just melted when she started her thought process. Go get the video, it’s worthwhile. Well, Jimbo Cramer, we are right back to the place where ” we would never see again.” Oh, and Jimbo, how about that bottom in the housing stocks a couple of weeks ago? Oh, and who wears shirt sleeves rolled up over their biceps?
There are trillions of assets out there that needs to unwind, it ain’t a bottom. We’ve been here before so don’t get amnesia. Wait for the rally and don’t try to catch a bottom.
