    I’d say we’re somewhere in optimism, somewhere middle deep. When people are posting MSM articles like “the fundamentals look good”, supported by nothing but elevator analysis (house prices are up! consumers are spending more!), it’s clear to me that people now want to believe.

    Yeah, really noticing the optimism starting to perculate. People are talking, mostly the ever-gullible boomers. We will see when this thing turns, but I think we are in for a sustained period of below average mkt returns, but still positive. Enough to keep everyone engaged.
