UPDATE ON THE STOCK MARKET. Written Wednesday, July 30th, 2008: 6:30 am EST.
Another ‘flashy-splashy’ rally yesterday So typical of bear markets, especially those with much further in time and points to go. Grizzly bear markets thrive on investors’ hope and adamant investor reluctance to believe things can get worse. Bear markets end when that hope is gone. Anyway, everyone jumped on board the stock market yesterday, figuring that, once again, the credit crunch is over or at least winding down. I doubt that and really doubt that the nine month bear market is over but one never knows the future for sure so we always have to keep an open mind.
