The market action over the last few weeks made me think of the bears urinating and defecating in a sacred place which is guarded by the bulls, who step in each time to clean up the mess. But as it gets cleaned up, more bears come in (they especially enjoy pissing in clean places) and spill more of their fluids. Since the bulls are paid fixed daily wages, they become very discontent, as they have to work more and more for the same pay. Gradually, they become sloppy in performing their responsibilities, leaving scattered pieces of bear shit here and there. It becomes stinky in there, so some bulls resign their positions altogether, leaving even more work for the remaining bulls. This trend will continue until it becomes so nasty in there that bears would want to find a better place.
