You certainly appear to have a burr in your butt this morning. To be fair, you need to point out that the S&P500 was at 1557 on Oct 5, 2007, NASDAQ at 2780 and the DJIA at 14066.
This was, of course, from much lower levels as you damn well know and point out in your note above.
As a retired investor, I was better off on Oct 5, 2007 than I am today.
