looking for reasons

“There is a room on Wall Street that has a big whiteboard. On the left side of the board is a list of reasons why the market went up today. On the right side there is a list of reasons why the market went down today. After the close, the experts go into the room and pick off a reason for what happened. After all, investors are always looking for the reasons why the market goes up or goes down. Any reason will do.”

– famed market timer James O. Rohrbach
