Mike C -- Good example. There are many others like this, some sent to me via email.

There were many factors involved in the recent selling, and I am not going to engage in a review of those who "got it right" because they predicted a big bear market.

I do suggest that most have not hit on some of the key elements in their predictions. This one is strong on the unregulated CDS market. The toxic brew also included some other things -- put buying, exploiting mark-to-market, ABX -- which painted a bulls eye on certain companies.

Thanks for the pointer.

Saw this article posted in the comment section of another blog, and it made me think of this post:

Should we sign up for his service, or is this a case of a blind squirrel finding a nut?
