That was some week! If you didn't grasp the kinetic firepower of last week's trading, you need to check your pulse. The tenacious action, the wild swings, the enormous volume -- it was the combination of thrills and terror that leaves an investor breathless and dreaming of a quiet Saturday at home.

John J. Edwards
, looked like beleaguered troops after a week of battle on Friday late. As you grapple for every precious morsel of information, our team of die-hard markets writers is sifting through the noise to help you better see and understand the market turns.

, along with tax pro
, will be participating in a chat about how to address tax issues related to trading and investing. It's on Wednesday, March 22 at 5 p.m. ET. It's free, but you need to register at chat.yahoo.com.
