2005: Markets go Plop

2005 January market graphsHey, did I nail it or what? The crash has started. From the Financial Times’ article — Wall St?Äôs poor start could bode ill for year:

The poor performance – and absence of cash flows – has caught many off guard and raises the ominous question: is this the prologue to a bad year?

It will get worse, much worse. I’m kinda annoyed that I was off by a few weeks though and it won’t be called the Christmas Crash of 2004. Selah.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
