Stock Market: Giving Up. Again.

November 26, 2008 at 12:29 pm (Money & Investing)

Yup, no matter what I do, I get screwed. Even on days that should be a sure thing I get screwed. Take today – there were a *ton* of economic reports released today, all of which were negative – so I figure hey, it’s a good time to bet that the market will go down!
But – I forgot to take into account that no matter what I do, the market will do whatever makes me lose money. So, instead of the market going down with all the bad news, it went up!
Yup, apparently because I bet on it going down, the entire stock market got together and decided that regardless of the bad news, it was a good time to buy a bunch of stock.
For f*** sake. This randomness is making me pull my hair out, and I give up, at least until the volatility quiets down, which will probably be months down the road.
GAH!
