If you look carefully you will discover that every time the stock market tanks the number of comments posted to this blog increases sharply. On the other hand, after the market has rallied for a while the number of comments drops close to zero.
Another interesting fact is that as the market drops lower the abusive comments rise to 30-50% of the total; in fact the percentage is larger because I do not post the most abusive ones. I find this "abusive percentage" a wonderful contrary indicator, and on that basis I think the market is due for a very big rally.
I post the abusive comments which are not too extreme because I want everyone to see how ignorant people think near low points: they drive with their eyes firmly fixed on the rear view mirror.
