If they were going to cut, a 1/4 point cut does nothing. They should have cut a 1/2 point and been done with it for the month. I guess it just signals that they are going to meet next tuesday and decide if another 1/4 or 3/4 point cut. They should have waited.

This isn't a regular cut, more lending to big institutions. This is causing a panic for tomorrow and a great buying opportunity to hold over the real cut.

It's only the discount rate.

Although they could cut the funds rate tomorrow morning. Monday may be a Janurary 23rd, 2008 kind of day.

I had the $vix.x got out at $32+ fri and had the q's short, but was all cash at the end of the day on the rumors of a BSC bailout. But that was bullcrap now as we see, never trust cnbc.... bastages.

Did you notice the rally fri started on rumors reported by cnbc at an hr before close?

S01 They always lead the masses astray, all of the big media. Think about it, when was the last time ANY of them made a good call with enough time for you or any regular trader to make a move?

I am now 100% convinced our government is totally crooked all the way to the core. Heck I want to buy BSC for $2 per share and be fully backed by the FED. How can they make it a win win for JP? Freaking crazy. And all this happened over the weekend??

DOW 8k..... LOL

Sucks because I wanted a rally so I could buy some puts. Puts will be so overpriced this AM it will be crazy.
