Anyone that follows me on Twitter knows that I’m easy to get along with, personable and generally an all-around nice kitty.
I have never and will never personally attack anyone for their opinion, no matter how much I might disagree. I follow both bulls and bears alike and frequently comment about both sides of the argument on various timeframes.
But let me be clear…
Anyone deemed “a professional” by virtue of the fact they appear on CNBC and make “market calls” is fair game as far as I’m concerned.
Keep in mind that I am very open-minded and you never see me Tweet “the market IS going to do this or that”. The truth is, I really don’t know what the market will do.
But over the years, I’ve seen so many “experts” come on CNBC and state emphatically that “the market IS going to do this or that” and then argue their point.
The problem with making an outlandish market call is that rather than trade what the market gives, they are forced to defend their positions and many times end up looking a bit foolish – to those of us that remember what they said in the past.
So with that said, I bring you…
