The long view: a look at historical bear markets and very long term trends
I have made a wager with this girl I hang out with quite a bit, at least unless she driving me nuts by sitting next and staring at my screen while I'm trying to make pretty pictures of long term stock charts, and quits threatening to post in my blog when I'm sleeping, to ignore the markets for 1 week. As part of this agreement, if we get a significant spike in the VIX I am allowed to pay attention again. In preperation for this I sold and hedged more today, I still don't like the market that much right now anyway. I like it alot on a vix spike. I have this budding theory about VIX spikes and the market behavior afterward that I want to tinker with.
Something is messed up here and I can't put in pics until I am replying to my threads. Content below.
