  1. LOL ! FTSE not even plunging 10 points. Ridiculous.
  2. buy buy buy!

    good news= buy
    bad news= buy more
  3. Obviously there is some sort of new insanity in the making. "Hedging" seems to be an expression only existing in the world of old school traders.
  4. the current mentality among long only equity managers is:

    - I'm underperforming
    - every time the market is down with respect to the previous day, I buy on the cheap :)

    long only equity managers are very predicatble, that's why banks and hedgies love them
  5. Only one comment appropriate :


    :D :D :D
