Dylan Ratigan started CNBC's "Fast Money" show Monday night with a discussion of the 1,000-point rally in the Dow today. He mentioned that the last time we had a "rally this big" was in March of 1933. Karen Finerman said the rally was "extraordinary to the upside," but it brings us back to where we were on Wednesday at lunchtime.
Tim Seymour said he was covering stocks short on Friday, but "today's move was without any volume." He says he "isn't convinced" and you don't "put in a bottom on a Friday." Jeff Macke pointed out that the "the fat cats are coming up with another scam for America," but if you're smart "you threw up all your stocks at the end of the day."
Ratigan mentioned that
soared 80% after making a deal that involves a $9 billion equity stake from
. Guy Adami says Morgan somehow managed to get out of the "death spiral" that Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns couldn't avoid. Macke said the deal is dilutive to Morgan's shareholders.

Seymour mentioned that "Europe jumped ahead of the U.S." and it will trade much better as credit spreads come in.

. He says "someone might be right to buy these guys" in terms of market capitalization and valuation.
Ratigan asked the traders if it's time to buy gold on the dip here. Seymour says "the long-term trend for gold looks good," but he said he wouldn't buy it in the short term. Macke says that we have "financial anarchy" but nobody is buying gold. Finerman says, "If this isn't the environment for gold, then what is?"

are other examples of capitulation. Both stocks fell huge and then saw large-volume spikes before rallying strong today.
Adami says the low Friday in the Dow won't be tested again. Macke said, "We're becoming a socialist nation, and I don't know how to price that." Seymour says it's a great environment for picking stocks.
