Why has sentiment changed so abruptly in october?

The stock market plunge in august, the credit crunch in september didn't derail sentiments, but why has sentiments plunged in october? Christmas blues or the weather??

Re: Why has sentiment changed so abruptly in october?

Domains is due to google price keeps going up while the PPC they give out drop - frustration.

I'm talking about general us sentiments. There has been a change sometime in october.

Chinese cities are about the best long term idn investments around. Most major chinese cities got their own language (dialect), culture, and ethicity.

Someone was moving something around in the ND server room, and disconnected the fudge box by mistake?

Much of it could be down to the Christmas Advertising budgets kicking in. Good but perhaps largely seasonal.

Re: Why has sentiment changed so abruptly in october?

I am still wondering what the heck you were talking about when you started this thread. Did you mean the one day downturn in stocks? Traffic is tail-kicking right now.
