...that's what I am seeing.

There are a lot of people out there who, until a few years didn't give a rat's ass about stocks. Then all of a sudden they had Ameritrade accounts and checked the market 20 times a day.

If those folks now decide that "You know, after all I have been through, I still really don't give a rat's ass about stocks....I am gonna buy a fund and forget about it.", is that capitulation, 21st century style?

Could be.

Me, I want to see these whore brokers and bankers and pimp financial reporters and analysts and accountants and greedy CEOs get what's coming to 'em, and that means the market comes crashing down and we, the righteous get to buy dirt cheap stocks again, just like Warren Buffett in his prime, but, you know what? Life seldom works out like it should.

It's Chinatown, kid...forget it.
