There’s just no other word for it. Today, for the bears, was absolutely brutal.

You see, over the weekend, I was thinking to myself how crucial it was that the market begin to weaken. That transpired beautifully on Monday. Tuesday was immaterial: nothing of note happened.

Today, however, blew a shotgun blast right through bearish hopes. In fact, the fun part of this bear market ceased abruptly on June 16th. Since then, it’s been a total hellscape. We seemed to be getting back into business in October, but with the October 13th CPI report, that was all over. It’s been a nightmare ever since.
