It was a bit chilly today. IT MUST BE ANOTHER ICE AGE!

This cashing in happens every year. Biggest ever bubble, so big slump. But it's not a surprise, nor is it a crash (yet).

Howdy, Folks!

Did ya check out Moscow at this link?


19+% up; not bad for the ruble. It will be interesting to see what goes on with them over the next month...

Peace y'all,

Our markets look sick again today. After trying the upside at the opening, the Dow is again joining the NASDAQ (-150.00) in minus territory. S&P down 20.00 ususally means down 150-200, but some dow stocks probably are being propped up. Maybe the PPT is hard at work.

Psssssssssssst, is that the bubble leaking?

One more thing about Mother Russia,

One can always invest in Vodka futures. If Russia does great, so will you. If their economy tanks(even more so than it already has in the past decade or so - but I digress), remember: when times get rough, people wanna get polluted to forget their troubles for a while.

Hard to lose out on this one!

Headin' down to the likkah sto' rhat now,

Taipei and Moscow both UP. Moscow up big. Looks like a lot of pent-up demand being expressed in Russia. Good for them.

Servant, your acid attitude is showing. I brought this question to the forum for general knowledge purposes. Nothing special. Until you see me say the market is crashing, don't assume that that was what I am saying. Thank you for the link. I think it's interesting to see the market activity fluctuations in various markets. The one that seems amazing is Russia.
