    Very boring at the present time.

    Can we expect a sudden surge one way or the other soon in your opinion?

    As of right now, it is putting me to sleep.

    Thanks

    I think it is ready for a big move, by spring. The economy is doing decently, jobs are slowly being added, and the dollar's fall isn't really an issue. Further the bond market is saying inflation won't be a problem. If we just get these sticky oil prices to go down we could see a 15% rally IMO.

    Watch Procter&Gamble and Gillette jump al over the place at open of the NYSE. With P&G announcing the $57 BILLION purchase of Gillette they are going to be the largest and most profitable consumer goods corporation on the planet.

    P&G stock will fall slightly and Gillette will rise.

    As expected today P&G fell $1.31 @ 15:30 and Gillette is up $5.79 @ 15:30.
    With Gillette hitting near a 13% increase in a 24 hour period you knew it was too good to be tru as there is already an investigation into the EXTREMELY high volume of call and put options involving Gillette. The NYSE states that a an option market maker company had an enormous order for Gillette options just minutes before the closing bell. Some people made MILLIONS today holding onto February 45 options but may also end up in prison befor they even get to cash out.

    Insider info in the stock world is the same as past posting in the bookie world...with slightly different consequenses.

    repubs are robbing the U.S. ATM before obama gets elected

    shocking people aren't rioting in the streets over $1trillion stolen from taxpayers

    GOP is smart though to use religion in getting poor people to vote for the party that only favors the ultra-wealthy

    I love how after the first bailout didn't get passed Bush was shouting that the market just lost $1 Trillion b/c of no bailout.

    Well now the taxpayers are on the hook for the $700B bailout and the markets have lost well over another Trillion since.

    I f'ing hate ALL politicians (Except Ron "I TOLD YOU SO" Paul.)
