I think I’m getting burned out watching the stock market. I’m finding it difficult to get excited about its movements these days.

On Monday, the market jumped up about 950 points — its biggest one-day rise ever — and I said to myself, “Great, it’s only going to fall again.”


And now the stocks opened about 200 points lower this morning and are still trending downward, and I’m saying to myself, “Great, it’s only going to go up again. Maybe not anytime soon, but it will.”

The problem is that the market is too predictable: It can only go up or down.

What we need is a market that can also move side to side. Now that would be an interesting market to watch.
