Quote for the day

“Being so critical, I am often considered a contrarian. But I am very cautious about going against the herd; I am liable to be trampled on... Most of the time I am a trend follower, but all the time I am aware that I am a member of the herd and I am on the lookout for inflection points.” - George Soros
