Jeff,


I did not mean for my comment to be taken personally.....I have been, and remain, a fan of oldprof because reading this blog is edifying. That said, I think you can agree that you are "a little late to the party".


"I repeat my invitation to you to call me regarding the Malpass take on economics, an invitation that you have (so far) chosen not to take up."


I did indeed respond to your e-mail re: Malpass, but because I use a gmail account, I may have been filtered out....I am resending it now.

I will respond to your comments of today at greater length later today....

Regards,

Blackveg

Black -- As usual, I welcome all comments including those that are critical. This one seems a bit uncharitable. Any regular reader knows that our model has tracked declining sentiment and technicals over the last several weeks.

In my view, the real world means starting with data and then drawing conclusions. Those who begin with a viewpoint and then seek supporting evidence will be losers.

I started this blog three years ago. Individual investors who have been in my program during that time have gained about 30%, despite the recent losses.

We are firmly grounded in the real world, with a nod to sentiment. Regular readers have noted many articles where we have highlighted danger points in economic indicators.

Briefly put, I reject your implication that we are not reality-based. We start with data, then draw conclusions. Your favorite site does the opposite.

Having said this, I emphasize that I appreciate and welcome your comments. I repeat my invitation to you to call me regarding the Malpass take on economics, an invitation that you have (so far) chosen not to take up.

Best,

Jeff

Jeff,

Very pleased to welcome you into "the real world".......Though I expect that we will see one or two upward ticks between now and September, the intermediate term will see precipitous declines in the indeces, reflecting the perilous state of the economy....
