I expected it to be down today anyway, but I didn't think it'd be up at yesterday's close. The market was due for a breather anyway. This has been one hellava run so far, I've made money hand over fist, but with the Senate news, I'm not so sure anymore about this bull market. I think today's announcement that the Dem's won the Senate was terrible for the market. Its now sinking in that the Dem's took all of Congress, that's VERY scary, because in 2 years, we elect a President, and most people, Dem or Rep, hate Bush. There's no more wiggle room for the Presidency, since I doubt many people want to see a 100% Democrat controlled US either. I think there will now be more uncertainty in the market (again). What do you guys think?
