Dow is down over 300 Points

I guess the financial industry didn't like the election results.

Questions about tax hikes at the end of the year and cuts in government spending leave a lot of uncertainty in the market

I have a people a ton of selling is about to happen. Cap gains taxes are never going to be this low again. There will be at least a 3.8% increase to pay for part of the Obamacare program.

This'll put even more cash on the sideline and hurt the market more.

Interest rates are going down. I guess everyone will be able to buy a house for free now!

In addition the divided government will make the fiscal cliff harder to deal with.

Meh. It's a 2% sell off for a major event finally happening. "buy on rumor, sell on news". That is all that is occuring. I'll take a friendly wager that it is back to Tuesday's close in less than 30 days.

This is true, but the President and Congress need to come together and fix these automatic spending increases and expiring tax cuts that will put a nice little dent in our GDP growth (which will then put a dent in tax revenue).

I picked up 145 shares of an aggressive Nasdaq ETF after it fell off about 8% early in the trading day

I'm going to sit on it for a few weeks and make a cheap buck hopefully

Man never bet on me! I'm making no long term projections, just that I doubt there has been a major change in market conditions. The same president. The same congress. And all the polls were pointing toward an Obama win (despite what many including myself thought may have been biased)

Anybody surprised by this wasn't paying attention. The markets MIGHT come back up once BHO resumes the overtime operations of the government printing presses, but once he shows his true colors with an all-out war on the energy and petrochemical sector and anyone else producing a product, we are in for a really bad time of it.

(Disclaimer-by "we" I mean people that actually work for a living and not on the government dole)

The Federal Reserve prints currency. The Treasury issues debt.

The Fed =/= Government.

I don't think it was the election as much as EUR/USD. Market started tanking about the time Draghi Spoke this morning and the Euro fell.

Could be some cap gains selling although we did ours months ago.

What's the best way to prepare for the "fiscal cliff"? I just don't see compromise happening.
