Stock Market Follies for Today

We're 10 minutes out from the closing bell at Wall Street and it's down 130 points. What is going on?

On Monday, the House rejects a bailout bill, DJI drops nearly 800 points. Tuesday it gets most of them back. Wednesday, break-even. Yesterday, 350-point drop. Today it was rallying, but then the House approves a bailout bill, and then the DJI plummets again. It's been two hours and we've gone from a near 300-point rally to a now 150-point drop. Fut the wuck?

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Although my money (so to speak) was on a 500-point drop for the day because I assumed that the House would reject the bill again. Shows how good I am at predictions.

Damn, though. What a week.
