they should rally
The stock markets are not concerned with terror attacks like this one.
No bearing at all.
The real problem for US markets is that we're coming to the end of a "boom cycle" for business, and all signs point to slow growth coming soon. Most of the world has already slowed down.
Low gas prices have and will continue to protect us for a while, but consumer spending has tailed off lately.
It will rally only due to the fact that we took a beating last week. Typical weekly swings that have been going on the for last few months. Drive price up take profits. Drive price down take profits on short sales. All while weak handed retail stock investors lose.
It's going to crap the bed.
The U.S. Markets will rally as investors realize Obama has kept us safe.
Thank you Obama.
Obama is possibly the least active President in 100 years. He's done virtually nothing in 8 years.
Name one country who is currently friends with the USA. Wasn't that Obama's rallying cry 7 years ago? He went on his apology tour, and nothing at all has happened since.
Any 1 here ever make a killing on the market ?

Last week I had an 89% gainer (OCAT). Some dumb little pharma (which I held onto forever despite losses since my position was so small) got bought up by the big boys and gave me a huge percent gain.
Pure gambling on that one though.
Never had the above situation. Will it stay at the buyout price or will it go higher/lower? I've already taken the profits but just curious.
I've also been trying an experiment in a fake account: Look at any particular day's losers, pick one that took a big hit (20%+) but is still a known company (like Mens Warehouse over news of bad books) and track it as if I bought it on the day of the dip. So far, it would have been a bad investment, but then again, a while ago I doubled my money with this approach on ITT Tech.
wonder what it will take to get the englanders off the wire
Well they keep giving everyone the heads up that they're going to raise interest rates for the first time in a million years. Which means the money that banks borrowed from the Fed are going to earn even more interest and they're just not going to borrow anymore. They've bled the system enough, now it's time to watch everyone panic sell so they can swoop in again and buy everything on the cheap with the free money they borrowed over the last 10 years. It all depends on what they feel like rigging on Monday. The beauty part is if anything goes wrong, the taxpayer(sucker) has to pay for it.
Good luck in the future.
If you want to minimize your losses and sometimes make money, buy index funds like the S&P, Dow, etc. The reason being is that all these financial institutions and big mutual funds have a vested interest in these. If these go down and stay down- all these fuckers are dead in the water- Think Lehman Brothers situation.
Agreed. Russian jet bomb + Paris = demonstrated capability to fuck up commerce.
This brand of lawlessness is baaaaad for business. The battlefield isnt in some foreign place with a funny sounding name. It's at a sporting event, a concert, a club. One side isnt recognizing any of the alleged rules of warfare.
Will def dip due to this terrorist bullshit...
Buy low, sell high.
