My goal is to reexamine my logic and to attempt to understand the emotional and mental circumstances that have shaped/warped my views.

Don't fault your logic (maybe fault your risk management).

What is working against stock market bears are a couple of old guys at the Fed (in conjunction with their colleagues) hellbent on trying to counteract deflation/ due correction as per the Kondratieff cycle.  The bears were actually not that wrong; in "real" terms the stock market didn't do well at all over the last few years.

Remember, "Age and Guile Beat Youth and Innocence anytime".  Oh scratch that, I mean, 'these guys are providing a stellar service to the general public by ensuring seemless operation of the financial system through provision of ample liquidity during challenging times'.</sarcasm>

Not much of a consolation, I know.  The other thing I see working against the bears is globalisation.
