Open Thread: Look Out Below!

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On November 14, 2012 @ 7:32 pm In Markets | Comments Disabled

Over the past few weeks, I have become increasingly cautious on the markets. I mentioned on Bloomberg I suspected this cyclical rally might be ending [1], and that we were moving from over-weight to equal-weight [2] to eventually underweight equities. My concerns were about an Earnings slow down [3] as well.

On October 26, I got even more explicit: Time to Reduce Equity Exposure [4]. (seeĀ this [5] and this [6] and this [7] and this).

As is so often the case, there was some pushback: Some folks said you can’t fight the Fed, others said any dip was a buying opportunity.

Lots of traders and investors and fund managers read this blog — do tell us what your perspectives are.

What Say ye ?
