A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

I keep forgetting that I always have new readers, readers not familiar with my market perceptions. Thus, when I said yesterday morning,

and the increasing ugliness of the charts..."

that comment speaks directly to my perception that, the more obvious a trend, the more likely it is to end soon.

And that is precisely what seems to occur now: the market is turning... up. Certainly, this painful, ferocious decline rapidly becomes a thing of the past.
