Sort of a 'darkest before the dawn' thinking. Once it sinks in that the porkulus bill is not the magic bullet so many think it will be, I think reality will set in and the market will drop like a stone for a week or two, maybe even going below 7,000 on the DJ.

If you are in for the long haul I wouldn't even pay attention to the markets. I've got 25-30 years before retirement and I am just going to keep doing what I've been doing in my 401k. I just don't follow the daily ups and downs. I will probably check it again in six months or so just out of curiosity. But I know that I am picking shares up for cheap right now and for the foreseeable future.
