http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~ssanty/cgi-bin/eightball.cgi In the spirit of reconciliation between longs and shorts, and given the arbitrary and biased drivel that is posted here daily (I admit my guilt - sometimes, but not often, IMO) about grand theories and attempting predictions, and various other theories, hypotheses and outright stratagems - let us all just ask the mighty 8 ball a question and post the answer. Please keep the thread light. Who knows, maybe the magic 8 ball will actually produce a productive trading strategy - stranger things have happened. One rule only: You must post the actual answer the 8 ball provides; no exceptions (honor code). I'll go first. Q: Is now a historically good time to short U.S. equities? A: MY SOURCES SAY NO.
