Full of Questions

Here it is, the second week in October 2007.  And we sit and we wonder…

We are full of questions.

Just how is it that the DOW is now hitting a new all time high?

One short month ago, weren’t we in a massive credit crunch?  Didn’t the central banks of the world jump into crisis mode and inject massive amounts of “liquidity” into the financial system?

Could everything be so wonderful now for stocks to be shooting up the Richter scale like a San Francisco earthquake?

We have been wrong so many times before that we no longer try to predict the direction of the stock market.  We’re certain that it will go up…  And we’re certain that it will go down.  We just don’t know exactly when.  Or, how much?

Gawking Like Freak Show Spectators

Still we like to gawk, like freak show spectators, at the grand foulness that it reeks of.

For we see that the dollar is hitting an all time low.  It takes $1.41 to equal €1 euro, $80 for a barrel of oil, and $748 for an ounce of gold.  Should it really come as any surprise that the stock market is more expensive too?

We remember that just several weeks ago, Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke dropped the interest rate a half a point.  Double what most “experts” predicted.

Still More Questions

What does the future hold?

Will Bernanke continue to cut rates in the face of inflation?  We don’t know.  But we can see that the masses piling into the stock market expect him to.  They are betting on it.

How long will it last?  Your guess is as good as ours.

But could it be that the stock markets recent launch off the charts is just a good old fashioned credit goosed market blow-off?

A last “hurrah” for the assemblage.
