I don't know if most people "get it" but when you wake up and you read 'The euro is presently quoted with a 1.0% loss against the greenback.', it's pretty scary. We're not talking about the Bot or some other 3rd world currency, but the EURO. When currency's are moving down 1% a DAY, then 1% UP the next, you have to understand the market is CLUELESS! These are not small moves and the volatility is sky high (I really don't care what the VIX says).
I don't know where the market will be in six months, but none of the following numbers would surprise me (DOW 12,000; DOW 10,000; DOW 8,000) - actually DOW 12,000 would surprise me!
