It feels like everyone has forgotten the chaos of August and
September, and we’re all anticipating that classic Santa Claus rally, or
whatever you want to call it. The overall market is up, and a lot of the stocks
I was tracking have rallied from their lows, and I’m back to accumulating cash
while there’s so much green. We will get another dip soon enough. I’m not so
sure any of the “concerns” everyone claimed to have earlier have been resolved.
Arguably maybe they were unfounded concerns in the first place, but volatility
will come back, and my ammunition will be restocked when it does.
