Super Game, Super Indicators?
In a few short years on Wall St., your author learned enough about the ways of the investing world to know that, while some coincidences are just that, the trend is also often your friend. In other words, just as in any market from your local auction to Shanghai to Marrakech, putting money into the stock market can often be discussed as a case of mixing maxims; the phrases caveat emptor and 'go big or go home' personified often seductively tango to the alternating frustration and delight of the masses. Therefore it is with tongue only somewhat firmly in cheek that we link to this Slate article on the Super Bowl Indicator. Without ruining all of the surprise, let's just say that it is too late to miss Monday's losses if you didn't sell out before close yesterday. However, over the next year, there is a good (say 80%) chance you will make up for it.
