    Everything messes with the market: investors get nervous because they hate uncertainty. They try to limit their anticipated losses. The trading programs notice this activity, interpret it as significant and start trading big blocks of equities in fractions of seconds to hedge their losses and the Dow drops 500 points. The next day or so the same programs record that the movements anticipated did not materialize and that key instruments are priced low and they start buying, and the Dow increases 500 points.

    This is known as "Weeeeeeee!

    I'm so pissed. When Shire bought Baxalta, I had that money in cash leftover from my Baxalta shares and hadn't done anything with since the sale it until about last Tuesday. If I would have waited a few more days :pissed:
