FED is in full panic mode. These things can turn quickly but I'm seeing Japan down 500, the Dow down 268, Sp down 37, Nas down 41 right now. Interesting indeed.

Don't panic, there's no emergency. The Fed always chooses Sunday to cut the discount rate, right?

Keep your eye on the prize...Somewhere down the line will likely emerge the greatest buying opportunity of the last 50 years.
All we need to know is when and what....
