 My name is Mark and I am a bear.  It started as just a social thing where a few of us would hang out and enjoy a nice leg down in the DOW.  Sometimes we even did S & P shooters with the index down 10 and 20 points a day.

Soon though I found I was losing control as I did historical charts from the Nasdaq.  Once I even did the whole 1929 Dow drop in an afternoon.  I thought I could stop anytime but as the down days became less frequent I found I would get the shakes.  Last Friday with the S&P denying me my fix I was even in a cold sweat.

Iv'e thought about signing up for a 12 step program but I may still be in denial.  When I see the Charts up but know it's just the dollar that is really down I just crave another drop.  When I hear that existing home sales are up and yet I know it is really just a quick rush before mortgage rates sky-rocket with the treasuries, then I know like like a hangover it will pass..

Sometimes I can't help myself(Its the CAPS peer pressure) and read GMX, Alstry, etc. and i think I'll be OK but other days I curl up in a ball and dream of the shiller indices.  I'm not sleeping much lately, and occasionally stare listlessly at the computer but I'll be OK.

Hey buddy, Can you spare a few points on the S & P?

Hahahahahahahaa.  666 baby.  Imagine, a predictive personality ...  a few Hurricanes, even the odd earthquake or two.  Throw in the occasional drone attack here and there, you know, for King and Country, and for amusement and pretty soon you've got a rip snarling boiler on your hands.  SWAT away boys. I hope you find him.  If you need help finding his exact location, please do drop me a line. 

Did you say NOPD, or did I miss something there?  Joe Shea says hello.  Oh, and he wants to know what the f*ck you're doing to protect the citizens???  Not much apparently.

You rule!  I'm ready for some S&P shooters.

I've always been a bear.  It just comes naturally to me.  I guess I'm not a very nice person really.

I'd like a shot of Nasdaq mixed with a red Bull and some XLF whisky and some Apple wedges on the side.

Hi Mark, my name is binv, and I am a bear too .... :)

LOL! That was awesome man. This post contains the encapsulation of my emotional state the last 3 weeks. Shocked disbelief, denial, maybe a little anger to. Oh well, the markets gonna do what the markets gonna do. I guess just join the bulls in thier insani....errr, euphoria, and re-short from higher level.

SPX at 1000 is like trying to fly at 18000 feet in an unpressurized cabin. You can do it for very short periods in an emergency, but you really should have an oxygen bottle. But I think this maket has mistaken NO2 for O2. And I don't think it will be to "funny" in a couple of weeks.

But that's what I have been saying for the last couple of weeks and what I keep telling myself :) Oh well.

Hey man, when you score a few points, do you mind sharing? :).

Binve, Sounds like you went through the 5 stages of grief there. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance.

Lol..Nice good stuff rec +1 also as a bull I still remain cautiously optimistic. When the Dow hits 10000 I will then breath a sigh of relief.

I am a bull by nature but this market scares me- it seems to be going up on little more than hope.  Sold one of my real stocks today that I can't see being profitable for a year, and it went up anyway.

Been a long rough ride. Got into FAZ way too early, thought it was a ferrari. Now it feels like a V2 rocket duct taped to a vespa. 

Used to feel bearish, now I feel like a Wild Turkey.

You see, Officer, I was fixin' dinner and this BEAR came crashing through the window, round the bar in the den, headed past me with a whole armload of beer bottles - hmm - ah Yuengling and Dogfish head, I think, and crashed back out through the sliding glass door. 

Mumbled somethin about S&P shooters --  Whadaya mean bears can't talk!
