    Default Below Eight Thousand

    For the first time since 2003 the Dow has closed under 8,000 points.

    How much farther do you think we can go before we hit rock bottom? It is not even christmas yet and there still seems to be no end in sight. Shows how much over a decade of over speculation and crappy fiscal policies can do.

    And GM is failing, if it weren't for the huge job loss I would be laughing. "It is not our long term plan that causes us to fail it is the credit crisis", more like never thinking about making energy efficient cars instead of SUVs and trucks.

    The plummet is not due to a credit crisis, it's because America is making SUVs and trucks.

    Considering the job losses and the dire message GM sent about they are teetering on the brink of being bankrupt it would cause people to worry. All day it was mainly everyone falling back to mcdonalds as a safe haven. Who thought an economic crisis can cause a health crisis too! Now we will be an even fatter nation while everyone buys mcdonalds with their wellfare checks or falling retirement funds.

    Funny thinking about that wall st did try to rally on drugs today lol. Any type of medical industry might become rich off of this when everyone has type 2 diabetes.

    How low do you think it will go?

    My guess is 7200.

    Was that a reference to my OP? If it is I was making fun of GM's statement of how it was the credit crisis that is making them fail. Extremely ironic when they are requesting bailout money to CHANGE their pre-crisis long term plan to making more energy efficient cars.
