    Beware the Shiny Happy People

    "What is destructive is impatience, haste, expecting too mch too fast."

    -- May Sarton

    With the market off to a great start in 2006, the biggest problem we face is becoming impatient, and keeping expectations reasonable. Technical conditions look good, the buyers want in and market pundits are becoming increasingly bullish, but that doesn't mean we become overly excited and worry that we aren't more heavily invested.

    One of the worst mistakes you can make is to become more and more bullish the higher and higher we go, but that tends to be the nature of emotions. Those who were bemoaning the weak market action a month ago and didn't expect the market to do anything for years are now talking about the best market conditions in years. The only thing that has changed is that the market has moved higher, which should should make us worry that emotions are becoming too rosy.

    It can be tough to stay calm and reasonable when you are not 100% long and the market had a week like last week. You second-guess yourself, cringe when you hear stories about how well friends and neighbors did, and are tempted to just throw your idle cash at the market so you don't have to watch the market run away without any long exposure. Staying calm and cool when the market is hot and you aren't in the middle of it is no easy task.

    But it is in a market like this that the ability to keep emotions under control can pay off big. Markets have a way of providing multiple good entry points. There is always another good opportunity out there and more often than not patience at a time when others around you are convinced that there is no place to go but up often pays off big. Not everything moves at the same time in a market rally. You just need to keep digging and you will find good, lower risk chances to put your capital to work.

    As we work on keeping emotions in check after last week's rally, let's contemplate where this market may be headed. We moved a little too far too fast and technically could use some flat action or even a pullback before we can feel better about continued upside. Clearly the bulls have the momentum here and with little overhead resistance in the major indices, the upside must be given the benefit of the doubt.

    The real test of this market won't come until a good bout of selling sets in. Only then will we be able to see if the folks who are sitting on the sidelines have the cash and desire to jump in and support things. Right now the hot money is running but it's the more conservative money -- which doesn't like to chase things -- that will tell the real story of where we are headed. Right now we have new year excitement and some kind words from the Fed fueling this move. That will dry up soon and then the real work begins.

    So don't get sucked into the emotions of this market but also don't forget that the action is quite positive. Although you may not want to fully embrace this hot market right this minute you also don't want to go too far the other way and start looking for things to fall apart.

    We have a quiet start this morning. Overseas markets are mostly positive and both oil and gold are seeing some buying as well.

  • AloV, olen ka juba mõnda aega Rev Shark lugusid üritanud lugeda. Need on vist kuskilt kopeeritud? Minu arust võiks need olla Eesti keeles või vähemalt lühikokuvõte võiks olla nendest Eesti keeles. Saaks ka aru, mida ta räägib.
