Dear Shorebreak,

Does it indicate that these (so called) Savers are actually Losers? ... Losing out the opportunity to make money?  :-)

Yours Truly,

In FED I Trust :-)

YT:  Does it ever occur to you that this is not just all about "making" money but also about "keeping" what we made. If you are following the national and international news, you would know that this is not the time to decide to risk what one may have taken a lifetime to save.  I think the smart savers are waiting to see the outcome of the Fed's next action before they jump into those murky financial waters.

BTW, where are you and Shorebreak getting your photo avatars from?  I want to be Liberace!!  Thanks.
