Mondays Futures +229 tonight

I hope everyone is enjoying the Sept rally. I just took a look at the DOW futures for tomorrow and they are up 229. Just hope this rally doesn't fall flat on it's face. Must be difficult for anyone sitting in cash to watch this.

Look at the reported level for the dow. If it was up another 200+ points, it should show a value above 11,000.

I looked at Bloomberg and you guys seem to be right. I just read what it said on the top of CNN Futures. If just dropped to 222 from 229. I don't know why it is reported like that. Made me feel good for a little while anyway.

I always think "Oct is coming". For some reason, valid or not, it seems the portfolio always falls that month....

One never knows, in the beginning of Sept all the experts were talking gloom and doom and we are up a ton.

Through this whole mess for the last few years I haven't touched a thing on my port although I was tempted. Won't be happy till I'm back where I was in Oct of 07. So I just sit and wait, I hope it happens in my life time.

Looks encouraging.

The market psychology is on the fence between fear and greed.

One bad economic sign and there will probably be another sell-off...

But the market seems to be holding up to a certain level. The sell-off lows seem to be above the previous sell-off.

I, too, am in this camp... particularly the "tempted" part. The "back where I was" part, not so much since I am close (he says, as if "breakeven" was the goal).

From where we were breakeven is a good thing.
