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!

We interrupt this regularly scheduled broadcast

The equities markets' initial thrust down appears nigh complete.

I expect an interruption of the decline for a few days to 2-3 weeks for a price rally (on diminishing volume?) of 3-5% (~30 to 50 S&P points). Or even sideways trading. How the markets trade for the coming days and weeks will betray just how strong, or weak, it truly is.

I suspect the decline will resume soon enough. In earnest.
