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!

Sounding a note of concern

The beauty of investing is its necessity to recognize and embrace change; change (volatility) is the fodder that creates investors' profits.

No question: the market environment today, internally and externally, is far different than during October, November, and December 2008 when I counseled readers to invest; to fear not the market's panic sell-off. I note the market indices now begin to labor, breathe hard, use up a lot of internal strength while making little upside price progress. A point of maximum change likely nears, although, as of this post, it still could be weeks or months away.

More anon, after more study. (And more health.)
