Those non-believers in the concept of beefers got a dose of reality yesterday. The action sure seemed like a beefer panic attack. Those with profits panicked & sold indiscriminately. The bears pressed long suffering shorts. The excess of money in beefer trading funds has made the stock markets act more like commodity markets - wild, irrational swings. All the ETFs make shorting easy. Massive sums speculating via computer trading programs run on "automatic". Madness. All this reminds me of the line by C3PO in "Attack of the Clones" (from memory), "machines making machines ... madness".
I'll be looking to re-load stocks, gold & corn soon, but will wait to see what happens over the next couple days.
