David Rosenberg predicts heightened volatility in 2010, as the VIX creeps back up to the 30-40 range. He says investors have become complacent in a hurry, as witnessed by the low cost of buying index puts, and thinks sovereign risk could be one of the big stories next year: "Whatever bad assets that have been resolved in this credit crisis have almost entirely been placed on the books of governments and central banks."

    Opinions, opinions, opinions. I for one am not going to sell the farm because of this man's opinion. I'm just going to try and be more alert to market conditions. there was a 5 year rally from june 02 till jan 08 according to the charts I have. According to that this one has just barely got started. I'm not going to sell the farm on that either!

    I see, when the charts support your views, you listen, but when they don't you disregard.

     

    That is the definition of "sheeple". Good luck perma-bulls!

    First, it was individuals that were all going to go bust.

     

    Then, it was corporations that were all going to go bust.

     

    Then, it was municipal and state governments that were all going to collapse.

     

    Now, it's national governments that are all going to implode.

     

    What's next, a galactic event? Hit by an asteroid, perhaps?

    NOTE: When retail investors begin to place MORE stop loss orders, then the scales will tip in favor of the bears.
