I may write a real post on this later, but for now, Josh Brown has curated a terrific list from a wide variety of pundits and mouthpieces, well worth the time to check out. My personal quote was:
"It's a momentum world and we're all just living in it."
Others I enjoyed were:
Downtown Josh Brown (The Reformed Broker): Bieber Fever trumps the Hindenberg Omen every time.
Eddie Elfenbein (Crossing Wall Street): Bulls make money, Bears make money ... but Greece is royally fucked.Dasan (Davian Letter): extreme pessimism that worked once in 71 years doesn't work so well in the other 70 years. And don't fight the Fed.
Tom Brakke (Research Puzzle): my memory is longer than the market's, so some selective forgetting can be beneficial. It's just that I don't know which things to remember and which to forget.
David Blair (Crosshairs Trader): stock trading can be likened to a psychiatrist visit: you spend good money only to find out how wrong you are in your interpretation of past events.
I had another thought that was a variation on the old "the market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent," adage: "The Fed can pretend the banks are solvent longer than you can say they are being irrational."
Happy New Year to all.
