Gotta Stop Looking

By -

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I don’t know why on Earth I waste a moment of time or emotional energy looking at the Weekend Wall Street quotes. I bet Elliott Wave is better at forecasting the future than this crap.

I guess I got fixated on it back in the glory days of a few months ago, when it would show the Dow down 1500 points (or whatever) and we could excitedly anticipated the real open. Lately, though, it’s garbage. This weekend, it was down about 50 points, more or less, all weekend. An hour before the open, it was down 17. And then, BLAMMO, the moment the real market opens, it adjusts. Totally, totally stupid.
