Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It has gone on for quite a while.  and does perhaps have a disadvantage that in a sense, it has to hit 100 someday.  So maybe it's lost some excitement.

Maybe there should be competitive countdowns--like when will the Dow set a new all time high, or will it?  It's at just under 11,300, and I know many on the site are expecting a catastrophe.  So we could be positive and have a countdown to 12,000 or higher,,,,,or we could predict American disaster and countdown to,,what?,,,8000?  That might add some excitement in the sense of which one would be achieved first--oil at $100 or Dow at 12000, for example.

Or maybe we should countdown the CAC 40 or Footsie 100.  I guess the advantage of the Dow is that's it's likely the most recognized financial index in the world.
