    Just look at it this way, the stock market is having a 30% off sale at the moment.

    That's how I'm seeing it.

    If you have trouble keeping a positive attitude in general, you're not cut out for participating in the markets.

    And you will pick on this or that or the other thing. The successful only use those issues as guides, not excuses.

    i'm not one bit surprised the stock market tanked. Corporate officers of many companies made horrendous decisions in order to post short term gains, then it fell apart.

    Many of the margin traders have taken a beating.

    Which is probably why silver and gold are down.

    I have long believed that the SEC should shut down margin trading, options trading and day trading.

    The stock market should be oriented toward investing, not gambling.

    Brilliant post. I think short selling should not be allowed. It's betting on and hoping for taking companies, which seems the opposite of a healthy "investing" market.

    Maybe if the government didn't regulate everything, the stock market would evolve just fine .

    I've been following Chris for well over a decade. The market has been well over bought for a long time. Following the Fed, their primary mission has been to keep up equity prices. Following gold and silver, it's critical to see the markets are not "efficient" meaning true and real pricing is not happening. Just so happened I was looking up his video that got my attention way back in January
