Mark Twain

From no less a speculator than Mark Twain comes this favorite maxim:

OCTOBER: This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks in. The other are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August, and February.

  1. Would you use the low VIX price to stop going long, at this time?

  2. Thanks for the follow on twitter.I almost always check out the persons blog or web page before following back. In my opinion there is really a lot of junk out there. I like what I see on your blog; layout and content and so will be back. Thanks Joe Todd

  3. hahaha, I love how you listed the months out of order!

    • Actually, I didn’t list the month. Samuel Clemens did, but I do think it’s quite funny. Hope you do, too.
