At long last, when the market dropped big after the Fed move, no one said to me, "IT'S SOROS, BLOWING OUT OF THE S&P!" Or, "SOROS WILL CRUSH THE FUTURES!"
I didn't have to worry that the Soros people would try to
the market and then leak to journalists how much they hated the tape. I didn't have to think that the market would just wilt. We could
pick our spots and buy the really good
names flat or down a buck.
And now we are free to play the long side as the
Big Bad Event is behind us and we don't have another one for days and days and days.
