  1. Deja vu all over again, they are trying to make it look like last Friday- right down to MSFT leading the comeback charge.

    So what's the theme song this time around?
  2. the odds aren't that bad for a black monday.
  3. MSFT up a buck, tick +900 twice today already- I'm beginning to wonder if this diehard optimism is bulletproof.

    Which is perhaps an argument for black monday after all

  9. Aaron Task says Not Capitulation.

    "The aforementioned and related shares were still down sharply at midday, but expectations (some fearful, some hopeful) that Friday would prove to be the much-ballyhooed capitulation session -- characterized by full-blown panic selling and extraordinary volume -- proved unfounded. At midday, major equity averages were recovering from their early lows. "

    "Indeed, that is the crucial issue investors are grappling with. The initial knee-jerk reaction today was one predicated on fears the economy's recovery is petering out, or heading toward the dreaded double-dip recession. By midday, many were rethinking the wisdom of that view, as well as the early decision to bail out of equities."
