He may say "I told you so," but I don't think I'll take financial advice from someone who said they'll probably "halt trading" even though it was after 2:30 and the Dow has to lose more than 3,000 points for that to happen after 2:30...

If you're an active trader and you don't know the trading rules... pffffft.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

I want to see the video of him watching the 600 point move back up a few minutes later.
