Bear Market Allowed??

    It seems as if the government will not allow a bear market to occur like it is something terribly aweful and has never happened before. Why don't they just let the market adjust prices naturally? Always some bs about qe or short selling ban instead of allowing the market to find a real bottom. Eventually, the market will go where it has to anyways.
  2. When the US banned short selling, it was followed by a healthy selloff.

    QE was supposed to prop the market up and it did for awhile.

    Eventually the market gets it right, regardless of gov't interference.

  4. Agree with you.

    'Despite market intervention/QE, natural market forces can not be
    stopped – only delayed. When the market does reassert control, the reaction (the overdue correction) may be even more extreme due to that delay'

  5. You short-sold the Dow on Thursday morning without a stoploss i take it mate... :D
  6. What do you mean "eventually the market gets it right"

    The market is never wrong... thats just a rationalization for a losing trade.

    Don't trade what the market should do, trade what everybody thinks the market should do.
