Just checked, and it's no longer Tuesday. Market is going down as per the plan (so far at least). ;)

Can you imagine the day traders that have figured this out having a field day by mainly going long on Tuesdays and Fridays, and then shorting the market on Mondays, Wednsedays, and Thursdays, and then retiring early to a nice tropical island somewhere?

It's Tuesday. Will the stock markets go up today, as per their Fed induced historical trend?

How true. Just cashed out a few hundred shares of airline stock. I didn't triple my money but I figured 67% increase in a few short months was a nice run.

It looks like another fine "boosted" Tuesday for the stock markets.
