gold and oil prices are sky rocketing around 100/barrel for oil and 900 for gold. if your watching the news you can see the movement of the stock market everyday and based on the recent data from different companies like decreased in jobs in the US and weak consumer buying, you can tell that we are having a bear market (a very slow growth in the economy). when these times happen, it would be the best time to buy stocks because they are in there all time lows. don't just buy any kind of stock, buy stocks that have good fundamentals and good ratings and also stocks that have good earnings in the future. you want stocks that will be outperform when this recession is over.
