Here We Go Again!

Stocks slump after $700 billion plan

Wall Street weakens as investors look for clarity on the government's bank bailout plan. Morgan and Goldman become bank holding companies. Oil and gold prices spike. NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Stocks tumbled Monday, as worries about the Treasury Department's proposed $700 billion bailout plan for the financial services sector overshadowed any relief about the outlook for Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs. The Dow Jones industrial average (INDU) fell 190 points, or 1.7%, over two hours into the session. The Standard & Poor's 500 (SPX) index fell 2% and the Nasdaq composite (COMP) fell 1.5%. Another week of madness coming up but overall the Markets are tumbling.

    Probably an element of this,but the confidence just isn’t there. Too many questions need answering and the judicial system is being taken over with blinding speed. I am sure this will have great legal repercussions. The very fabric of freedom is being stifled in the USA of all places.

  • Maybe some profit taking, maybe Friday was more about people closing their shorts?

    If you’re short, to close it, you have to buy shares (unless you’re shorting by spread-betting and that doesn’t impact that share price.)

    I’m no expert though.

  • Start with Article 8 of the Poulson Plan and go from there. Wall St knows this plan just will NOT get through Congress. I mean Poulson wants to be above and beyond the rule of Law! FFS!!! Ftse to close -200pts or more Tuesday.
