Quotation: 300-point rallies in the Dow happen in bear markets

We’re in a very confusing atmosphere. People didn’t really know what to make of a 300-point rally in the Dow the other day, but my main message was that 300-point rallies from the Dow don’t happen in bull markets.

Quotation: Ivan Raszi

Can you show me a mock-up to help us choose a designer/developer? No. I fell for this once when I was young and naive. I made no money and wasted lots of time.

Quotation: John Mauldin

Chasing the latest investment craze is incredibly easy, as we are bombarded with success stories at every turn – the neighbor who got in on the hot IPO, our brother-in-law with his 30% hedge fund return last year, and the advertising campaigns of the top mutual fund companies, proclaiming their latest star performers (how often does a mutual… Read More »
