A friend was driving me to his office last week. A flashy car pulls up beside us at a stoplight, and motions for us to roll-down the window. Without even saying hello, this well-dressed man in his late-40s starts bragging about day-trades he made recently.
When the light turned, he said "you should have listened" and drove away.
Little things can say a lot. What do you think this implies about the
state of the markets?
I hadn't seen "that" type of behavior in several years.
It reminded me of cocktail parties in the late 90s (up until about 2001). You know, where stock-picking gurus wearing black faux-turtlenecks and blazers drank expensive wine and talked about Internet stocks.
