Looks like today may staunch the bloodflow. But with the volatility of the last few days, it's anybody's guess where the market will end today.

Thank me later. I'm certain the only reason the market is back is because I was about to head over to Ross Stocks For Less and drop some cash while stocks were on sale. Now that the sale is apparently over, I'll have to get them at department store prices.

Was today the largest one day percentage gain of the year? If not, it's got to be way up there.

According to Reuters, "Wall Street's three major indexes tallied their biggest one-day percentage gains since March. The small-cap Russell 2000 recorded its biggest single-session gain in nearly two years."

So it wasn't the largest for the Dow, S&P, and Nasdaq, but it definitely was for small-cap!

Thanks! My mid-cap growth fund was up around 2.7% today. It sure felt like the biggest day of the year.

Not at days end. Pretty level day - minimal loss.
