Yes, abitarecatania, my bearish view took a hit from mid August until this month where I've had a straight up ascent.

As I have stated a few times, I think smart money has been selling on strength.  Personally, I am out.  I have a very strong bearish outlook and I was out in July and that silly greed gene kicked in and I started picking the odd stock again, but it hit me, if I truly believe the market is in trouble, which I do, why risk my money? 

I think this is a market to cut your losses and let things settle down.

It has occurred to me that there could be a rally as we get into retirement savings season, and I might consider playing with about 10-20% of my portfolio, going in where I think people will put retirements savings, and getting out by March or so. 

But overall, I think with a credit contraction, everything is going to be hit, and it is going to be hit harder than people realise.

Of course, I can't predict how much money will be printed to smooth the contraction, but an absolute truth about low interest rates is that it takes away people's ability to get ahead.
