A lot of noise.

I never know any more whether to laugh or cry when I hear that old saw. People who stayed fully invested like the Wall Street experts tell us we all should do, have seen their investments cut roughly in half twice in the last 20 years. Will this dip fit the definition of noise? Maybe, but we're just getting started and I suspect that someone somewhere is about to feel pain once again.

Wake me up when the streets run red and you can tell me all about the "noise", assuming you are among the survivors. I hope so, I really do.

"Hey, you're bleeding like a stuck pig!"
