Op-Ed: When the stock market stinks - 'Market Image' 101 for losers

The theory of market analysis is that people know what they’re doing. The practice is that things built on cosmetic imagery tend to look like that. The NYSE just scraped the bottom again, and theories are doing more business than industries.

Op-Ed: Market farces strike again- Dow reflects lack of investors and traders understanding

I think the fact is stock markets don’t know a thing about the financial markets. Everything that needed to be done has been done. The banks have their lifelines, and the derivatives in the US are now legally controllable. But stocks keep dropping.

With the theme from the Twilight Zone in the background, Dow dives

The economic euphemisms are drying up. The Dow isn’t buying the fairy tales. Apparently Chicken Little and the Subprime sky falling routine was enough for one bedtime story. People have been talking about “soft landings”, but on what?

Op-Ed: Diagnosis Denial- Dow’s delirious dives darken dolorous days

Homer Simpson is starting to look like Aristotle, compared to the Dow’s mental state. The latest multi-billion sprint off a short pier is based on a business confidence survey. It’s like asking passengers on the Titanic if they like swimming.

Op-Ed: Dow 360 point drop based on what it already knew
