This week was the one year anniversary of the March 23, 2020 market lows.
These sorts of things always lead to a media spasm of coverage, followed by my annoyance of the same. I am working on a piece that pushes back on some of the hot takes that were filled with usual lack of context and foolish street myths.
One thing especially worth noticing is the tendency to treat buyers and sellers as a monolithic blocks.
They are not.
I am only spitballing here, but based on my experiences and some decidedly anecdotal information, different kinds of buyers and sellers come out at different times. I think it might look like some variation of the chart above.
