<<In fact, considering how you and many others are vocally bearish, it could provide a contrarian support to the view that the bear is over.

This silly statement was also being made just before the collapse of the NASDAQ market.


Ahhh...but at that time it was a bullish market so too many vocal bulls were the warning that should have been heeded. Right now, we are in the bear market so continued calls for bear continuation are the direct parallel to the situation in the early 2000 with the bulls.

Listen, Vlad, if you're going to defend the bull's position, why don't you answer my challenge?

I am neither bull nor bear as I said before. All I am trying to do is to make some money by following the direction of the market. I am not trying to defend any specific position. Since we were talking about the sentiment indicators, I just wanted to point out that (at least, on TMF boards) I hear and observe far more bearish sentiments than bullish.

As far as debt as a percent of GDP is concerned, it is clear that expansion was financed primarily via debt. But this was going on for many decades. I don't have any figures nor do I feel comfortable making any far reaching conclusions based on any figures. This process will either continue or it will be worked out in some way. Why don't you post this challenge to Math? He is more knowledgeable in economics than I am.

Again, I am just trying to follow the market direction and make some money by doing it. I have no agenda of proving that I am right. But you clearly do. I kind of doubt that it could be healthy for your decisions in the market, though.

Vlad
