I'm not much of an investor, certainly not like Happy of DC, but there is a remarkable financial roller-coaster going on right now.
Said to be the product of a glich in the market machine holding sell orders to long then dumping them all at once, set off a chain reaction of selling that still has the market jittering along today.
Personally I pulled my money out on Monday ($2500) before the chaos took over, (told ya I'm not much on stocks).
So what lesson can be learned here? #1- when Den pulls his funds, so does the rest of the world!
So who is peeking in my windows here? Someone in the NSA or DHS that was listening in to my conversation with my ex-broker and spread the word of impending doom and spread it throughout the land. When Den speaks, everybody listens.
I suppose that would explain it but it is a complex system that defies definitions of movements and their causes within the market. All the more reason to leave it alone and save your mason jars, (do they even make such a thing anymore?) and buy a shovel.
