Contrary Opinion Posts

I like to think that all of my posts are contrary opinions!

But some of them focus especially on the state of public opinion and its implications for the markets.

Here is the list of posts through August of 2009. From that date forward you can find my contrary opinion posts on the blog devoted to my book "The Art of Contrarian Trading".

How about sticking with market analysis and staying away from politics, that would be more useful to your readers

When someone is as accurate as Carl and gives it a way for free he can write about anything he wants and I will read it. More useful to your readers? Like he owes you specific information that you have paid for?

What a great "archive". I started speculating just a year and a half ago after reading a front page story in a swedish newpaper about that the bearmarket was over. After a very trying year I somehow survived and turned losing to breakeven to small profit. Reading your book I learned a lot about myself. It turns out I sold when I should have been buying last year. Keeping a diary really helps keeping cool. And looking through all your contrarian post I now understand the phrase "bullmarkets climb a wall of worry"...
But your forcast 2008 were a bit off. You eigher underestemated the bear conviction or you were just experimenting with your blogg looking for bear reaction. :D
Thanx your keeping a really nice blogg....
