Interim Update: I've been looking at charts all morning and the same pattern is emerging: all major equity indexes may very well be in Waves 3 of 3 of 3 Down. Now I do not have time during trading hours to explain, but anyone who read Robert Prechter's Elliott Wave Principle will understand what I am getting at here.
If indeed this is what is happening, then it is a rare trading opportunity on the downside.
Nothing in trading is a certainty, we can only measure probabilities and act accordingly. The probabilities of a DJI move to 7000-9000 before year's end are growing.
