Y2k impact on market - nil. You won't even notice it if anything does happen.

If your are concerned check out your companies web pages. Most have an explaination of what they have done to prepare for y2k.

Expect some minor glitches in unexpected areas for a week or so. But the markets as well as the companies sold on the markets are all ready for this. Everyone I know who works in the computer field will be working new years eve and day or at least on call.

The big impact will come from the small business sectors. If you shop in small stores, you might find them recording sales by hand.

If you are mostly in volitile stocks, you might read up on the Foolish Four or the Rule Maker stratigies and switch some of your investments.
