Most pple are LTBH. Years later, the market will be better than the aftermath conditions and it has been shown over and over again. See the link below for yourself, :-)'s%20Charts&id=4

I don't know if you know for sure that "Most people are LTBH" I certainly don't. Even so I don't know what Dereks chart has to do with that.

I think the peopel who advocated "buying" on Tuesday were playing on the emotions of the tragedy. Everything I have ever read on investing or trading in the Markets stresses keeping emotion out of the decisions.

We know that pple do not make too quick dicisions on money matter. Pple would be more careful at this time. I trust those pple are well educated and smart to make good decision at this time and will feel comfortable with his/her decision making.

When people were asked to "buy" they were being asked to make quick decisions and to do that to show they are "Patriots"! That is making a decison on emotion, which I think the "professional" could have taken advantage of.

I'm surprised you would want people to loose money, that they may or may not have to spare, to try and "hold up" (manipulate) a market that was already in a down trend.
