Quote for the day

“Another item I would place under the category of misconceptions is the way the media reports the reasons for the market being down. They are always saying the market is down because of profit taking. I think it would be wonderful if everybody was always taking profits. But, the truth is, most people lose money, and the reason markets go down is because they take their losses.” - Mark Weinstein
