An interesting point for me this week is that our local ABC affiliate, on their 5 pm news, finally ran a news story (rather than a 30-second "Hey, the market is down") story on the Wednesday broadcast, rather than jut flashing numbers between commercials. After the Dow Jones was down nearly 2,000 points.
My point for you: Turn off the damn mainstream media. Another point is that when these dunderheads start paying attention, it's too late. (Or maybe looking for buying opportunities). Warren Buffet: Sell on greed, buy on fear.
If you're going to put your hard-earned money into markets, learn about markets. Otherwise, find a money market fund.

Please note this. Do more than just note it. Write it down. And do it. Phil says "While you're waiting, you're learning, reading, studying, and building your watchlist."
