Sad Guys on Trading Floors

Dow_drop_5000 As noted yesterday, we lowered our Dow target to 9,000.  As we get closer to that, we start paying closer attention to contrary indicators.

Along those lines, a new tumblr blog, Sad Guys on Trading Floors, caught my eye.

Its funny and sad and poignant, but for our purposes, its a yet another in a list of contrary indicators that suggests things are getting overdone, and that sentiment is moving towards an extreme. A blog such as this could only be conceived of during times of extreme market stress.

As of today’s lows, the Dow has given up 5,004 points (14,198 to 9,194).

Note that this is not a precise timing signal, but it is an interesting anecdotal sign worth watching . . .



I actually believed guy on St. Mark’s when he told me this was a limited edition iPhone.

I can’t add a caption to this that could possibly make it any more hilarious.
