    I don't know when I'll cover, but...

    ...I sure won't go long until April. Do some simple math on all the selling that will take place between now and February. You'd have to be crazy to bet against it.

        And what do you think the break-down is here, on this board?...

        It's gotta be 99-1 - at the very least.

        People here - who are out there trading - are giving their money to professional traders. Why?... For psychological reasons mostly, but also out of ignorance.

        More often than not the ignorance is willful (under the spell of the psyche). The psychological motivations are interesting: People want to feel that they have some sort of insight into a deeper reality, as it were, that is privileged relative to their peers'. (Professionals are vulnerable to this too, of course - in spades!) This is, more often than not, much more important - i.e., a stronger motivation - than the desire to make money - which is no small part of why these folks *don't* make money.

        This is very well established stuff - if you're wondering....
