Guess The Dow

The market looks so whacky to us that we cannot resist. Another installment of Guess The Dow is at hand.
This time, a twist. Not only must you be the closest to the Dow's close without going under (reverse Price Is Right rules) but you must include a reason (plausible or otherwise) for the index's performance with your entry.
The wheel is closed to betting 10 minutes before the bell. In the event of a tie we will award to the earlier entry.
GO!
Update: 8083 makes undisputed Guess The Dow champion "guest" the winner with this entry: "8090 - free pretzel day at the AMEX."
