Yesterday in an NFL game I saw an ankle twisted far beyond the limits of physics. That pain must have been excruciating... yet there was no crying. Stock market participants, on the other hand, cry, bitch, moan, and complain more than a nursery of 3 year olds.
Last month stocks hit a a brand new record. While many see these stock prices indicating a bubble in asset prices all I see when I look around is a bubble in whiners and cry babies.
If you were 100% fully participated in this rally.... would you be negatively crying about it? Would you spend the last 3 years openly trying to short it? Would you be penning negative articles on why the market will succumb to selling pressure?
HOW MUCH MONEY HAVE YOU LOST SHORTING THIS MARKET?
The same fools (and that is a blunt reference to the idiots who do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result each time) who continue to short this market, will probably be the same fools 5 years from now shorting this market. The real LOSERS, unfortunately, are the ones following them, because they are the ones using REAL money.
If you've been wrong about this market every step of the way since the lows in 2009, ADMIT YOUR WRONG. I'm sorry I make a losing trade. Wow that was tough. Instead in response to being wrong we get an "I hate twitter" "Mommy these people don't like me go away"
Amazing isn't it? Even more amazing is that people, 10's of thousands of them tune in to see what these babies have to say on a daily basis.
It's the wonderful world we live in. Be right once, be loved, be wrong forever, be adored.
Hey I'm wrong all the time. I'm not going to cry when someone asks me about a trade. "Hey UPB you suck, your mom looks like a rotting oak tree".... my response "that trade sucked, I do suck, I am sorry I was wrong. Go smoke a tailpipe... That $NUS trade from $130 to $60 earlier this year didn't work for you I imagine? "
If you are a good trader, reputable, solid.... you don't get the hate emails/twits. The chronically wrong traders, who have no business spouting their opinions? Yeah they get the brush back. If you spew an outlandishly wrong trade.... expect the brush back... and when it comes don't whine about it like a 3 year old.
What pisses me off is that these pansies make all traders look like a bunch of sissies.
Grow a set of balls and admit you are wrong. And if you say you are going to leave twitter because you can't take the heat..... STAY TRUE TO YOUR WORD...... LEAVE AND DONT COME BACK. We don't need you.
