(END SOT) (nat of opening bell)



It was an opening bell made possible by
the Federal Reserve. Analysts suggest


Wall Street might not have opened


Monday at all had the Fed not brokered
a


deal for JP Morgan Chase to buy the
teetering investment firm Bear Stearns
.


It came at the bargain price of 236
million dollars , just 1 percent of
what


it was worth earlier this month. The
company's heavy investments in mortgage


securities had eroded the market's
trust.



(SOT: William Silber/NYU Finance


Professor)



"Trust is crucial to financial markets.
Once that trust is gone, no matter


how much cash you have on your balance
sheet, it won't be enough."



The Fed also made loan money available
to other struggling investment banks


and lowered a key interest rate a
quarter of a point, making it easier
for


banks to borrow money. The Federal
Reserve is expected to cut rates again


Tuesday.



(SOT: President Bush)



"Obviously we'll continue to monitor
the situation and when need be, we'll
act


decisively in a way that continues to
bring order to the financial markets."



(Stand-up Bridge: Karen Brown/CBS
News/New York, NY)



"Analysts say the bumpy ride is not
over yet. The value of the dollar is
at a


record low. A growing number of
Americans are defaulting on their
mortgages.


Those close to retirement may be
seeing a 10 to 15 percent drop in stock


investments."



(SOT: Ray Martin/CBS Financial


Advisor)



18:34:36 "Maybe now is the time to
take the risk off the table
particularly


if you're closer to retirement...take
some risks out of stocks to preserve


their value, leave some in there for
the longer term side of your investing


and look at increasing your savings if
you can do that too."



In this volatile market, analysts
suggest increased savings is good
advice for


everyone. Karen Brown, News7.

CK/TITAN RADAR ANALYSIS AND MORE


<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Brent Watts in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. High pressure anchored over
the Great Lakes is moving east
producing mild southwest winds. This
will mean another comfortable day
Tuesday with afternoon highs nearing
60. Moisture will begin to increase
during the day. While it will be dry
Tuesday, clouds will thicken during the
afternoon and into Tuesday night as a
low pressure system prepares to move
north out of the Gulf of Mexico and
into the Great Lakes. By late Tuesday
night, a few of the clouds may be full
enough to produce some light showers in
the mountains. However, the best chance
of regional showers won't arrive until


lunchtime Wednesday. We could even have
some stronger storms with gusty winds
as the low pushes a cold front through.
Showers will taper off by Wednesday
evening. Behind the front, a steep
pressure rise will produce gusty winds
for everyone Wednesday night. Right
now, Thursday though Sunday call for
fair skies and highs around 60. MONDAY
NIGHT: Partly cloudy and chilly. Low:
36TUESDAY: Increasing clouds.
Comfortable. High: 60 TUESDAY NIGHT:
Mostly cloudy, a few showers. Low: 54

get used to the sound of the NIT, while
it may take a few innings before the
