How does that song go? "Gotta know when to hold'em, know when to fold'em..."

Well, even though yesterday's market drop recovered a bit late in the day, I still whee'd a little. It was enough for me to do a slight rebalance in my rollover. Also had little unintentional whee. My 401k contribution posted last night, rather than on Friday night like it usually does.

I always whee a little when it posts on a down day...makes me feel like I'm getting a bargain! Guess Friday was a Good one, for more than one reason!

re the OP, I pulled up Google Finance this morning, and the headline story was
US stock-index futures got a lift on Thursday after commentary from a key Fed official rekindled hopes that more easing may be on the way
There's something wrong when the market is depressed because of lack of government interference and excited when they think about diddling with it again. Shouldn't it be the other way around? It may be time for me to start investing in something I understand better, like Beaver Cheese futures.
