Dylan Ratigan started off


"Fast Money" show Monday with a discussion of how stocks are near new lows in the credit crisis.

Guy Adami said he thought the

Dow Jones Industrial Average

was going to trade above 9,000 today. "If the Dow closes below 7,800, we will see 6,000 next," he said. The Dow fell 223.73, or 2.6%, to 8273.58 at the close of trading on Monday.

Tim Seymour said there is no reason to act with so much policymaking hanging in the balance. He said, "Europe and Japan are in recession for the first time since World War II."

Pete Najarian pointed out that the financials haven't participated in any of the recent market runs. "The

Ratigan reported that the Senate Democratic leadership is proposing $25 billion in aid to bail out the auto sector. Seymour said this is just what the market doesn't want, when there is no volume and no buyers. Adami said shares of

General Motors

will probably be worthless regardless of the outcome.

Ratigan asked the traders if there is an investment to be made in the oil complex.

Adami said there is no real money to be made in the commodity market. However, he said investors should look at

. He also said he prefers some type of pre-packaged bankruptcy."

Kudlow told viewers the market is disappointed that Obama hasn't announced the new Treasury secretary and whether he will raise taxes in 2009.

"People wanted to be reassured by a moderate to conservative Treasury appointee, and none was forth coming," he said.

More Auto


Phil LeBeau joined the traders to discuss the proposed aid for the automakers. LeBeau said it's his understanding that the $25 billion is for the auto industry, not just GM.

He explained that under the plan, there will be no bonuses for executives making over $250,000 a year and the government wants assurances the automakers have a viable business plan for the future.
