Well - you know back around the last bubble and pop circa 2000 - I used to bring up Fiend's Superbear Page and read some of his links to the more 'cheerful' folks on the planet.

If a bear can be cheerful that is.

Maudlin's such an optimist compared to ?

heh heh heh - so if if the world is having trouble ahead - Kansas is just as ducky as anywhere else. Right?

I think the market could fall, yes.

Then again it could rise and it could remain relatively range-bound.

It just seems to me that the news reports such as on CNBC sound much more positive than the data suggest. And since most of the people they interview are people who make money from trading stocks it makes one wonder.

CNBC is hype. A few months ago it was hype that we're doomed and stocks are going to zero. We rally for a couple of months, and it's hype extolling irrational exuberance.

The best thing a long-term individual investor can do for their "inner peace" and their blood pressure is to turn off CNBC unless they recognize it as 100% entertainment value and 0% financial advice.

I was going to say something mean about long term treasuries being the worst performing asset class year to date, but I decided not to be mean.

Maybe if Honobob and Architect team up to downplay the existence of bubbles in the future, then we won't have any more burst bubbles.

If it is not real, then I can still sell. I am still 16% above the bottom in Nov 08.

So, what is the problem?

I meant "FIRST" as "MOST RECENT". The euphoria over statements folks are getting mailed to them over previous months mean a lot of folks think things are "getting back to normal". That is FAR from the truth.........

You could try being nicer to people, it might help......

Ahhhh. You meant "first" as in "last".

first: 1. being before all others with respect to time, order, rank, importance, etc., used as the ordinal number of one: the first edition; the first vice president.

last: 1. occurring or coming after all others, as in time, order, or place: the last line on a page. 2. most recent; next before the present; latest: last week; last Friday.

Hey, I'm willing to try anything if it will keep the market going up. You need any help getting across the street? Carrying your bags?

First, really? That's strange, because just about everyone else I know also says its a sucker's rally. Funny thing is that they're all waiting to buy the next leg down . . . wonder how that's going to work out when everyone seems to be playing from exactly the same play book.
