Hi, dear members and visitors!
Here is your 101st month newsletter
1) Monthly activity
The number of (non bouncing) members reached 1840 (+10)
Welcome to new members!
As for the message activity, it was still the quiet summer
season with 10 new messages only, reaching a total of 8425.
This month we might give some thought to volatility.
It is a market trait which nature might be evolving as our
world is more and more complex and therefore to make market
projections is less and less obvious.
One day some pundits tell you the worse is behind us and the
next day other pundits (or the same ones, because of some new
event they did not expect, as if it was not their job to
anticipate them) say that there is still a long way to go
before the economy emerge back above water.
Maybe it is specific to a bearish trend, (uncertainty, by the
way, is the best food for bears, cautiousness is imperative
when driving in the fog). But maybe on the other hand (as you
know, economists, even amateurs like me, have two hands)
it is a more general phenomenon that will persist whatever
Welcome anyway to the roller-coaster!
So here is the question we could debate: in a complex world,
where everyday new reasons are found, and old reasons
rediscovered, that incite to change opinion, should we expect
that volatility will be more ...volatile?
