Like the magazine cover, I'm setting up a stock market bottom. Contrary play, stocks and fixed income should turn up soon.

Awesome.

I don't market time but I'm still smiling anyway when I read stuff like that

Each day it tanks I do try to squeeze a few more bucks into my taxable account though. FALL! FALL!

Bottom you say? God I hope not, the cheaper they get the more I can buy. (My apologies to those of you no longer accumulating.)

I do not remember things being this negative for a long, long, long time. Even superbull Cramer was about to slit his wrists tonight. I just read a blog about which bank is going to fail first.
Maybe, the damage has mostly been done. The dollar stock market is not really down much, but if priced in foriegn currency or gold terms it as already crashed. Maybe, the bear (mostly a loss of dollar purchasing power this time around) is coming to an end. Our stocks look awfully cheap to Europeans, Asians, and Arabs right now.

Cramer's predictions are terrible regardless of what the market is doing.

Do you mean the free ones, the ones you paid for, or all of them?

Well, it is time to re-balance my "play money" portfolio. I've dumped the stock screen (small cap value) and bought 4 junior golds. This probably means, that if you're a trader, it's time to short gold big time

one of cramer's best friends is negotiating a plea deal with the FBI to avoid jail and is about to lose a lot of money in a divorce. and he might have to register as a sex offender

that probably had something to do with it as well

Yeah, I bought before dawn this morning but as usual I screwed up (since the funds won't be purchased until the market closes). Should have bought yesterday but silly me, for some reason I thought the Feds were going to wait until the end of the week.

Not to worry. The euphoria seems to be wearing off. You could still get that warm and fuzzy feeling of having correctly timed the market by days end.

ROFL!!! Well, with my crystal ball totally out of whack, if I correctly timed the market it will be totally by accident. It's so easy to get caught up in the "gambling fervor" of all this; much more exciting than the quarter slot machines at the casino down on Canal. I can't help but hope!

Aren't we still waiting on DOW 8000 anyways?

LoL, yeah the euphoria should subside soon...since the markets have to encourage the Fed to lower rates by 75 basis points, right....
