Global recession = lower oil. I don't like to look at Dow points (& the Dow's a crap index anyway), better to look at S&P and consider % terms.

Really ugly: no lipstick on this pig

3m t-bills paying 30 bps; short term A1 P1 paper over 6% - yikes. Spreads (LIBOR/OIS, Swaps and TED) have all blown out bigtime.

I bet I'm not alone in reconsidering my purchase intentions, may be best to keep some $$ back for the market in '09.

VIX went over 50 intraday - some signs of capitulation here.

good thing I got out of the market, best thing we can do as consumers right now is spend, but like everyone has said, panic != spending, and that just makes matters worse.

*sigh* consumption rates just keep on falling...

Savings are going to rise. Housing ATM = gone. HELOCs and credit lines getting constrained. Risk aversion increasing. Savings' rate still only about 2% ... it was 7-8% last time we had a real consumer retrenchment in 90-91.

The US consumer has to stop being the hedonist-of-last-resort.

8-9 percent drop Naz and S&P. Good action, big volume. More tomorrow. Weak close.

This is exactly what is needed. Interest rates will surely follow. As a society we are *all* over extended and debt leveraged. Growth will be stagnant for awhile but it's better than the alternative which is defaulting as a nation.
