REPOST: Jim Rogers "Obama sees the markets collapsing because he was elected" 16 Nov 08
Lets take a listen to Classic Friedman, because Obama and Co appear to offer the opposite.
An interesting exchange between Milton Friedman and Phil Donahue back in 1979
In case you Fools do not understand what is going on, I will repost some help.
Here is an outstanding chart that can help you going forward, the formation is clear:
I do not care how many lines you draw on your pretty charts, or how many triangles, trend lines, support, even if you get 40000 RECS...it is mostly vodo garbage followed by Fools and pumped by sales men. (Elliot wave and moving averages MIGHT have some use, but they are not as useful as common sense)
Put away your Graham books, Buffett quotes and momentum trading advisors etc....In case you missed it, Buffett is in trouble and Graham lost 70% of his money during the Great Depression.
It is simple: people do not trust Obama, the FED, SEC and the markets. Nor should they given all the information unloaded in the last year. Obama and Co, likely only care about re-election, people will likely forget what is happening now. So Obama and Co are "swinging for the fenses", a 1 trillion++ "bail out" to their supporters.
See if JR can explain it:
