This morning I experienced a weird premonition that the DOW would close below 10,000. Last night I was reading posts by bears and bulls on selected bear fora and noticed MOST of the bears were not convinced that the DOW would close below 10,000. I thought to myself that they weren't aware of the historic potential downturn today.

I told people at the factory; some were interested, others were worn out by my constant crash warnings, but at the final tally, they were ALL surprised at the low DOW close.

Were you?
