Day 3 – can we find normal soon?

How long do we get to watch the Obama’s dancing? When will the market come to terms with not having investor owned banks? Now that Hillary’s sworn in, can I quit having to listen to her? Will anyone sing “hey, hey, hey, goodbye” to Caroline Kennedy?

I’m looking for normal. I want the youngest’s finals to be over, the news to be boring and the stock market to toodle along with small 0.5% changes.

I guess I can always hope for February to get here quickly. Does anyone else feel like we’re still hung over from the election?

    “When will the market come to terms with not having investor owned banks?”

    When the market feels confident that the federal government is going to pick a use for TARP funds and actually stick with this intended use for more than 3 days. Consistancy and tranparency will go a long way to calming things down. It’s difficult to get comfortable when you see Paulson flopping around like a chicken with his head cut off, changing the rules of the game every week. Hopefully this will cease to happen in the near future.

  3. I do suppose I could look at it all from a different angle. After all, this flurry of events keeps me in a job. 🙂
