Update 2: DOW off a cliff: down 230…El-Erian on economic outlook & Santelli & Liesman on the data; Market Mover Friday: Consumer Spending plunges – down 0.5%

Update 3: Closing Bell DOW down 251 to 9710, S&P closed under that 1040 level, losing 30 to close at 1036, NAS down 52 to 2045.

Update 3: 309pm EST: we just broke under 3.40 on the 10, 3.39 and the traders have an eye on the S&P at 1040 1042 is the closing level to watch (1035 now) DOW near the lows off 263. as of 200pm 456 of 500 S&P 500 stocks are lower..

Update 2: Dollar up, and in tandem as has been its habit DOW falling. Methinks peeps saw the consumer spending and got with MiM’s analysis of the GDP for themselves. WHAT IS THE DRIVER OF GROWTH GOING FORWARD?

None , zip, zilch, the big goose-egg. What sane capital would take a risk in this political environment? Not I. I would keep my head down I wouldn’t even want to make ‘too much profit’. Pfft. Nowhere to go but down after a 3.5% GDP yesterday, the govt cant print fast enough to maintain the velocity of money to hit that number in 4Q, and 1Q 10? Housing should be collapsing again under unemployment.

DOW was down 270 now down 228 to 9735, S&P down 26 to 1039 NAS down 47 to 2050. Peeps watching 10 yr yield at 3.40, if we break that, they say hold on…
