A snapshot of the headlines says a lot.  For what it’s worth, only James Altucher and I seem to be wanting to buy this market on this crash.  We could both certainly be dead wrong, but I’d rather be a contrarian.  Matter of fact, contrarianism is a form of “hardest trade to make”, if you think about it.  Anyway, take a look at this:

Now all that said, be careful out there, even if you are buying.  Again, we can’t draw a line or try to catch the perfect bottom.
