I've only had a couple, officer, really I'm fine.
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?
