Think it's bad now? This chart explains why it could get a lot worse.

Same guy (I suppose he's a generic writer for Yahoo.) Same site. In just a couple of weeks we've gone from this is why it could get a lot worse to this is why we could see all time highs.

A great reminder for me to look back on and not waste any time thinking about not sticking with an investment policy. People making a living in the financial news world don't have a clue as to which way things are going to head or why.

I keep remembering one of those Money magazine covers that showed "the new millionaires" during the housing boom...I kinda wish sometimes they'd do a VH1 style "where are they now".

It' those kind of writers that mandate a need for a douchebaggery ranking system. For all news really.

On the other hand, we don't pay anything for reading these articles so it may be unreasonable to have higher expectations.

The fun in those Yahoo finance articles isn't reading the article, it's reading the comments. I always come away feeling smarter than I really am after reading the comments.

CNBC is pretty much the Gold Standard for financial porn.

Here' a very old, very long thread on the same topic, from a Canadian site I lurk at: Financial Wisdom Forum • View topic - Outstanding Financial Pornography
