Am I hallucinating or are there in fact a bunch of pessimists out there right now when it comes to market outlook? I am usually the most pessimistic guy in the room, but nowadays I seem to be one of the more optimistic ones. If my senses don't deceive me on the above, I have a theory that the economic outlook is weighting heavily on people right now. And that they transfer their perception of the economy on their market expectations. "Is this the Economy, stupid?" Please chime in!
