The last two days have been a roller coaster ride on the Dow Jones. Yesterday, the Dow dropped 630 points because of the debt ceiling and debt rating change. Standard & Poor’s removed the United States government from its list of risk-free borrowers on Friday. The down grade is the first in U.S. history. However, the Dow Jones rebounded today and is up 430 points. The rebound came after the Federal Reserve guaranteed low interest rates for two more year. So, be careful in these uncertain economic times.
