Dow drops 391 points

Stock prices sank Thursday - with the Dow Jones industrial average dropping 391 points - after dour comments about the economy from the Federal Reserve.

Seeking safe havens, investors moved into U.S. Treasuries, which rallied and pushed the yield on the 10-year note down to new record lows.

Nasdaq Composite and the S&P 500 sank more than 3%.

    Itll be ok. Itll go back up afore we know it. Plus if you are dollar cost averaging and have a good while until retirement time this may be a good thing.

  4. Mr, President

    Why aren't my policies working? Why does big business think I am a moron? I'm really good at playing basketball. Maybe I should have played for the Harlem Globetrotters. They have a lot of fun.Oh well, got to go. Time to plan my next vacation. When I am gone, everything gets better. My policies must be working. Let me go talk my friend Hoffa. He knows all.

    Proverbs 10 vse. 15 The rich man,s wealth is his strong city: The destuction of the poor is His Poverty. This is our problem in America today @ until this changes we are doomed. It couldnt have been said any better (this verse).
