The Market

:warning: the following is written after a considerable amount of red wine:

I just watched a market wrap-up on the late news. The Australian market (Asx-200) just hit its highest point for 2009 - I was up $1100 for the day (though still down where I was a week ago).

The poor girl doing the late news had this feed-in line for the financial report - "so, CommSec expert, how has the Swine Flu affected Australian markets today?"

What a freaking meaningless comment. Seriously, the market is NOT one single amorphous, brilliant, prophetic beastie. It is a collection of greedy, cowardly scumbags. The current financial crisis -that has driven the ENTIRE FUCKING WORLD into recession - is a classic example. Was it creatde by financial geniuses? No, it was created by greedy idiots, and the markets - the same breed of greedy, cowardly idiots - panicked and followed them.

WHen the market finishes up, we hear, "market sentiments were bouyed by such and such!!!" When the market finishes down, we hear, "the market was spooked by such-and-such!" Or, if there are no apparent reasons for the market to finish down, we hear, "the market was down due to profit-taking today".

Crap. Garbage. Lies. Some sectors go up for various reasons, some go down for various reasons. Occasionally, due to a declaration of war or the announcement of huge stimulus package, the market will ALL move in one direction. But mostly its the schizophrenic behaviour of a huge number of cowardly or greedy people. Greedy, cowardly, STUPID people who caused the financial crisis, then made sure it filtered, through the market, into every sector to cast the whole damn world into recession.

But still we are told they know what they are doing. No they don't. Who could still believe this lie?

So I bit the bullet -- bought myself a [url=http://www.ordio.com.au/products/Fatman-iTube-Red%252di-with-Speakers.html]Fatman iTube 252[/url] and I am very happy to say that I am an extremely happy customer. I actually listened to one at a friend's house a few months back and just couldn't get that quality out of my head because it really truly surprised me. I searched online everywhere for a great deal and finally found it at [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I rang them first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Dispatch was surprisingly fast. Everything was perfect. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they dispatch outside of Oz but you won't be sorry if they do.

I am crazy happy about it...
