Back to the Future

If you have a few minutes, I suggest you do an eye-opening experiment, as I did last night……

Glance at the posts from xTrends back in February here. You might even want to look at this post from February 25th which said the market would crash in two weeks (which, as we now know, was precisely correct).

In those days, each post would get hundreds upon hundreds of comments – sometimes thousands!

These days a post might garner a few dozen comments – – including those from snarky dorks.

Try to notice that people crowd into a certain mentality during nadirs and zeniths. I think the fact that xTrends has become so terribly quiet – – – and the fact that, en masse, Slopers seem to have guzzled down the bullish Kool-Aid – – is quite telling!
