Markets Gone Wild

Monday, 5 Mar 2007 | 2:52 PM ET

On a day when the Dow opened 200 points lower, turned positive, then turned down again, many investors are left perplexed. Major events almost always present an opportunity to make money, but how do you play this? What’s your move when markets go wild?

Eric Bolling said investors should focus on what's working such as gasoline. Gasoline is going up, keep your eye on it.

Tim Strazzini said there just weren't enough reasons to sell this market lower today. But that doesn't mean it couldn't happen tomorrow.

Steve Liesman was our special guest. He said the yen has been the conduit... the way in which the contagion has spread around the world. It gives a signal to many, many markets.

Tim Strazzini said he doesn't see it that way. It isn't as big as the energy trade.

Guy Adami said here's what I'm doing for the next 3 weeks. I'm buying Boeing Hewlett Packard and Goldman Sachs.
