I was asked this question from one of the conductors on the departing train home late this afternoon… the same conductor who was on my arriving train early this morning;
“So how was YOUR day”?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s how my day went:
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Stocks skidded Monday, with the Dow slumping nearly 778 points, in the biggest single-day point loss ever, after the House rejected the government’s $700 billion bank bailout plan.
The day’s loss knocked out approximately $1.2 trillion in market value, the first post-$1 trillion day ever, according to a drop in the Dow Jones Wilshire 5000, the broadest measure of the stock market.
Actually, I spent the majority of my day in back-to-back meetings with only 1 hour of my day free to schedule with my own work (which included inhaling a lunch in that 60 minutes somewhere), and then back to another 1-hour meeting with another project team.
If you haven’t already guessed, I work in Manhattan for one of the largest (remaining) financial services institutions downtown.
Tomorrow should be fun. Sigh.
