Not down because of the upcoming speech in my opinion. Looks like a soon to come buying opportunity.

Long overdue correction. Probably people selling off and taking huge profits to take advantage of the new tax laws. When it bounces back in a few days it will go beserk like never before.

Markets are down 1% today, markets were up 1% in a single day last week. Is this really considered a huge sell off?

Just down about 1% today. 300 points on the Dow isn't what it used to be.

Amazon, Berkshire and JP Morgan Chase announced a partnership in the healthcare business. United Health Care stock, and several others plummeted. That had an impact.

Scotts Miracle-Gro dropped 15% today... so I bought a little. Why shouldnít I make money on pot growers?

1% is a move, 5% is big......Huge is more than that. Last years' gain is 8000 points, if we gave that up it would be huge...

If you think this is a big drop, you havenít seen the gains made this year.

I just said down the most in a long time.

But I agree I was over thinking it.

The average is to see one correction (dip between 10-20%) every year. If we get a 15% correction off the Dow's recent high of 26,616, that would put us at 22,623 (down about 4,000 points). We'll see..... It's been a while since we've had one.

I just swapped some bonds for stocks in my 401k. Gotta take advantage of RBD (really bad days).

Not 10% yet. The high the other day was 26,616. Dow is currently at 24,561. A 10% dip off of 26,616 would be 23,954. Down a little over 8% off the high currently. Down 4% today from last Friday's close.

Closed at 24,341 today. Down about 8.55% from the high. Will it dip further, or will the bull get back on its feet tomorrow?

I wish I knew!

Wait, you were right. The Dow was actually down to 23,923 briefly today. I missed that while I was on the phone. Crazy volatility today.

If I could, I'd rename the entire state of Texas "Shane's Big *** Ranch", and about 1,000 of y'all could be my ranch hands and guides. Everybody else would have to find somewhere else to live.

Needs another point or so of correction(profit taking) and she will go up again but maybe more slowly(cautiously) this time.
