  1. If this market drop has anything to do with Taiwan, buy it, because equating Taiwan to Madrid in terms of "violence" affecting elections is completely off-the-mark. JMO
  2. Can't believe how many times I've read that yesterday's decline was due partly to "violence" and Taiwan's elections; most people there believe the assassination attempt was staged in order to draw 200,000 troops away from home provinces so they could not vote -- the majority of which favored the opposing party.
  3. I'm calling for a massive US stock market decline today (Tuesday).

    At the time of this posting the DOW is at 10,064.75; the S&P is at 1,095.40. Watch how low they go.

    On the other hand, EUR/USD will see better than 1.2470 by tomorrow (Wednesday 03-24-04) 6:00AM EST. At the time of this posting the pair is at 1.2286.
