Grrrr ... "a bear market: commonly defined as a drop of more than 20 percent in a 12-month period". How much is the Alsi off from it's highs now? I'm not convinced this is the end either. US must still open and play catch-up after their King Day. Then there's all the big companies reporting later during the day, and I don't expect them to paint the global equities any prettier. China is starting to come to the party with their reporting. We've got no power left on which to grow our previously booming economy. Gold has fallen, the rand is spiralling ... going up? Maybe just for a visit, before we shake hands with US panick sales.
