They think WSJ might be down because so many people turn to them for financial news...worldwide.


 

 

Oh, thanks for that info. I heard about United this AM, then NYSE. I just turned CNN on after I read your post.

I've been warning everyone for years to keep several of your latest bank statements (on paper).  Nothing is better than paper, for retrieving $$$$.  Never depend on 'technology'.  And that goes for anything/everything. 

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

What would a piece of paper provide? Statements can be forged & amounts can be changed...a statement would be pointless.

It doesn't matter if it's internal/external, (schmoozel/schmaazel), keep those paper statements/records/whatever else.  Just keeping a personal ledger won't get anyone anywhere.   As my mom would say:  'Mark my words'.

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

Cash in your hands is better than nothing at all.

 

Take your statements to your bank when they're out of cash. See how much better you'll feel?

My thought was or is....

 

People living in Greece need their money from their investments of stocks.  Their Banks went down or they are allowing token amount.    So maybe thousands of people cashed out their stocks.  Causing a large downward drop of different stocks.   So the NYSE closed down the stock exchange.   My tiny guess.

They are actually two completely different and mostly separate financial worlds but it does make some sense doesn't it?  Smiley Happy

 

Have no fear.  The Greek economy is not big enough to take ours down.
