    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    It's 10:30 AM in Hong Kong, and the Hang Seng Index shot right upward after opening, but dropped-back a tiny bit... up .022%. So it's possible the Dow Index will climb above 20,000 in about 12-hours. January 9th... Champagne Monday. There'll be a Wall Street nickname, if it happens.

    The DOW is more fake now than it was then. The economy is not as related to what Wall Street gamblers are doing.
