Dow Jones close below 10,000 point

Stocks suffered through another traumatic session Monday, with the Dow Jones industrials falling 370 points — after having plunged almost 800 points earlier and setting a new record for a one-day point drop — pushing it below 10,000 for the first time since October 2004, as investors sold on fears that the credit crisis is spreading economic havoc around the globe.

Investment Idea

My investment with RM5,000 initial capital have been growing since 2005.I found the stock market appears confusing and complicated, but it is most definitely based on logic "supply and demand". However, the laws of supply and demand as observed in the markets do not behave as one would expect. To be an effective trader, there is a great need to understand how supply and demand can be interpreted under different market conditions and how to take advantage of this Off Market Transactions in KLSE.
