Wide swing between TSX and DOW. Interesting differential. It appears that a correction has been taking place with TSX which many considered to be overbought. It is easy to just watch such a correction and be mesmerized. Be prepared to buy in..at a discount 10% + +. Consider a slow buy in. You will not hear the bell when the TSX bottom is reached. Review your fave stocks. Compare their highs to current prices.

It appears that we have been correcting. I get the impression the correction has a ways to go. The US jobs report Friday was a positive for the market. Note Gold. Even in a world of turmoil gold is in going down. Perhaps it has been overbought for quite some time. The real gold is prob oil and gas....has real value. Oil took a beating this week. Who knows what the real underlying situation is. I blame the Russians.

my cousin says that daytraders cause all the problems and are responsible for making the market go down. So if you get tired of blaming the Russians then you can always join my cousin and blame the daytraders for a while.

Default Stock Market Final Oct 10/14

The close: Fri Oct 10/14 TSX hits six-month low amid global growth concerns. Oct certainly has been correcting. Oct is well known for being a 'crash' month. There is a lot of money out there on the sidelines and there could be a lot more as many will panic and there will be more selling. What we don't know is how low will it go. Some good buys are in the making for those with cash and there are many of those. IMO, this is the time to buy good companies that have been beaten up a bit. Buy in slowly. There is no bell when the bottom has been reached. A little good news can be a big boost to the market. I have noticed that some good companies with good yields are hanging in there at least for the time being. What do I know?

Default "gas For $1.71 A Gallon"

Did I get your attention?

“Real Gasoline Without Oil” for 90% Returns?
SNIFFING OUT THE "GAS FOR $1.71 A GALLON" TEASER PITCH FROM SEAN BRODRICK FOR OXFORD RESOURCE EXPLORER
Posted on September 25, 2014 by Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe

Editor- These teasers are so common from newsletter writers. Be sure to read this article. It says a great deal. A word to the wise is sufficient. I come across these teasers all the time Some are even old.
A bit on oil...
WTI has held up somewhat better, but only somewhat. It traded on Wednesday at about $87.30, for a one-year drubbing of almost 17 per cent.

There’s lots of oil on the planet. Rising shale output has pushed American production to a 28-year high. But that’s not exactly news. What is news is that the European recovery appears to be going into reverse. A grim string of data points to plunging German manufacturing and exports, putting Europe’s biggest economy on the verge of a fresh recession. Italy, the euro zone’s third-largest economy, is back in recession and France is close to one.

The other news affecting oil prices is that Libya, home of the biggest reserves in Africa, is magically back in the game.

Market mayhem: What's driving the global economic breakdown
The Globe and Mail
Published Friday, Oct. 17 2014, 6:21 PM EDT

Cracks are showing in the global economy. Financial markets gyrated wildly this week, as investors took stock of the latest indicators and realized all is not well in the world.

Ever since the financial crisis, the global economy has never operated at full throttle, but there have been several notable bright spots. Now some of those are starting to lose their lustre.

In China, a sudden drop in steel demand is just the latest sign of a broader slowdown that is sending ripple effects around the world. In Germany, a sharp pullback in exports is raising fears that the nation can no longer be counted on as Europe’s economic engine. From Brazil to Russia, emerging markets have failed to live up to expectations that they would provide the next wave of global growth. Here at home, the energy-fuelled Canadian economy is sure to feel the chill of sinking oil prices, but as the loonie tumbles in tandem, exporters are hoping for a better competitive footing in global commerce.

A key wild card is the U.S. economy, which has shown vigour this year. The question is whether that strength can last as other global heavyweights increasingly look tired.

EDITOR....
Anyone who has come late to the party will certainly feel the pinch of a stock market downturn. Even long term holders will feel the pinch but hopefully their returns over a period of time look reasonable ie 10%. No one knows what will happen going forward, but as I have said before, there is a huge amount of money on the sidelines and some of this $ will go to stable companies. The ones that consistently deliver. This includes dividend and yield plays. These generally rebound first.
For those with $...now is the time to consider buying in. ie by low..sell high. There is no bell that rings to alert you as to when we have reached a bottom for a certain segment of the market or a stock.
There appears to be a glut of oil in the world so perhaps there is time to wait and watch. Buying in slowly is one way as you are dollar cost averaging. WHAT DO I KNOW?
