You could very well be correct. However, others feel differently:

Bulls set for a bounce back

"NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- With equities bouncing back after an initial smack on Thursday -- and Friday's jobs report for January looming -- the bear market is likely at or near a level where history would dictate investors step back in."

Don't we all wish we knew which view of the future will turn out to be more accurate...

Numbers is hard

Although rare, it is possible to read something on this forum you don't agree with and simply move on with your life

No matter how bad the downturn, and how loudly we cry "Uncle!!" it seems like the market has a mind of its own.

Kind of makes you nostalgic, thinking of the old days of economic prosperity, doesn't it?

5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.
