The recent market sell off that has seen the Dow Jones go from 10,700 to 10,100 is a little more than a mere regulation pull back. Attempted bounces and recoveries have failed and I can’t say I am surprised. The economy shows little signs of recovery, and credit remains tight. Housing market has not... »
