I love market coverage. No one could predict Friday's uptick of 3% or today's drop of nearly 1%. They couldn't predict it but the folks who write the articles know exactly why it happened. I find that impressive. Reassuring even. But absurd, mostly.
(And come to think of it, in an attempt at self reflection, I guess that there is no reason why my response to market coverage should be much different than my response to life: left impressed, reassured and with a suspicion that it's at least somewhat absurd.)
