As it surpasses the highs of May 2008, I can't help but wonder how much it's gonna crash when the FED shuts down sometime in August.

But once we get the some spine to axe spending, we should be on our merry ways to the highs of April 2008 (DOW 12,820) and Dec 2007 (DOW 13,265)

No deal, no default, some of the FED is going to have to shut-down (either 40% across the board or 100% in some and less in others).

I doubt the markets/treasuries would crash, even if the US gets downgrade.

My tip is 14500/15000 then 8000 maybe.

Ah yes......the Master of Disguises (AKA cube root of 27-4+1) makes a prediction. Actually it may be as good as any.

Tomorrow should be bloody for my portfolio.

Today people who hold cash equivalents feel comfortable. They shouldn't. They have opted for a terrible long-term asset, one that pays virtually nothing and is certain to depreciate in value.

well, I was thinking oil dropped because markets were worried about economic prospects.
Just was watching news. It looks like Dow -500 points as well.
