Indications are investors will hang on
NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- Patriotic buying? Panic selling? Hold for the long-term? Just what will investors do when the equity markets re-open Monday after being closed for nearly a week following Tuesday's terrorist attacks.
There's been much speculation over the last few days and it's starting to look like investors will be staying the course.

"There's definitely been a pick-up in calls coming in which is indicative of the level of concern investors have," said Rick Malone a senior vice-president and regional broker Ferris Baker Watts. Right now, however, Malone said none of his clients were looking to sell when the markets open.
About 5 to 10 percent of clients, Malone said have indicated interest in buying stocks to spur on the market Monday.
Another broker, at Salomon Smith Barney, a unit of Citigroup (C: news, chart, profile), said clients across the board are accepting the firm's guidance that any sharp downturn would be a short-term phenomenon and that long-term stocks historically have moved up after these types of events.
None of his clients, he said, were looking to step in and buy on Monday but there also were no sell orders.
Charles Schwab (SCH: news, chart, profile) spokesman Greg Gable said trade order activity has been light at the brokerage as investors wait out the developments of the week. Customer calls and Web site visits also were running light, he said. Some investors who had entered orders at the beginning of the week cancelled them.
"People are waiting to see how the market reacts," Gable said.
Datek said it wasn't accepting orders yet due to concerns about communications reliability and so could not comment on which way it thought investors would go. However, the broker said it would be fully operational Monday.
