So, what's your take? Were the lows successfully tested yesterday?

The Nasdaq and S&P 500 actually made fresh lows yesterday.

And yesterday the DOW didn't really test its 7,773 low made on 10/10.

So, the global markets are the little kid, and the forces of unwinding over-leverage are the riot police?

Damn! It is only a "Kiss Ur Urs" rally! The little Bear only takes a little break, the BIGGER BEAR is going to come back.

Hi Ben,

First, and foremost - where the heck do you get these photos? I am always impressed.

What should I buy? You know that I am a mere economist, but I want the return, and wish to move away don't want to pay for a mutual fund. So I buy individually - long only - no shorts. Love the lows, hate the economy (and Paulson, of course), but love Bernanke, so I feel okay.

Thanks for the plug,
