Jan/Feb 2012 Stream Look-back

I’m starting to hear more and more people calling for tops, everyone is looking for the next big pattern to create a signal- myself included. There is always a need for awareness and familiarity of ones surroundings.

However, with little to note but the current range I began to think back to last years start, which has often been compared to this years, and thought I’d post a few select messages and charts from the stream for perspective.

It is often our own sentiment that keeps us from our best successes. I’ve tried to cut down on noise all together or by writing it aside on a notepad, but there is certainly some here to learn from.

To a certain extent and each in our own way, we measure things in a reverting fashion. Assessing the stability of where we’ve come from drives us to where we want to go as we let go of one level and reach a new.

But at times and like the markets we can find ourselves feeling unsettled- even as we have reached our goal and should be looking forward a pause can strengthen from a look back.
