Open Thread: How About That Fade . . . ?

Dow_13008

Mr. Market got the 50 bps he wanted -- and after a brief 250 point run up in the Dow, gave just about all of it back.

The excuse du jour was that its the traders fault blamed a Fitch downgrade of FGIC, or WIlliam Ackman's comments that MBIA and Ambac each had much bigger than reported losses. Maybe it was the report that S&P may lower or cut $534 billion of subprime debt.

Regardless, the gains were all spit up by the bell.

Question:  Will markets rally on this cut, or is the Fed pushing on a string?  Y'all discuss this, while I go out for a few drinks. (play nice)

What say ye?
