Interest Rates Update

Very quickly here wanted to let everyone know if you don't know already that the Feds have cut rates by a quarter point, .25%.

This was expected and the market immediately sold off after the news but now looks to be climbing back as of 2:30 PM EST. So, keep an eye on your positions and look for a full market summary to come after the close.

Also a heads up tonight I will announce the winners of the top commentator contest for October. Happy Halloween.

    Man that was fast. Did you have two posts prepared, one for a rate cut and one for a non-rate cute? lol :grin:

    Happy Halloween

    Yeah it's ugly out there. Hurts more when you're options are open! Just remember.. never sell during a panic. Panicking never made anyone money.
