I fundamentally don’t understand the stock market. Things go up and down for reasons that sometimes make sense to me, and sometimes they seem to move the exact opposite of what I would expect.
Could I in theory understand it? Sure. Do I really want to dig into it? Oh, good lord no.
But to go along with news and data (and this is the stuff that makes me crazy) there’s also a lot of conjecture about how something thinks someone might feel about something:
“Happy investors were afraid that the markets weren’t wary enough about the apparent sunniness of blah blah blah…”
So I played with that idea in this business cartoon and basically gave the markets the blahs.
Great cartoon, Mark.
What you’ve pointed out is so true; endlessly watching the ups and downs of the stock markets-on a daily basis is tiring for all involved.
I wonder if the analysts get tired of the grind.
Maybe they should take the day off once in awhile.

Good one, Mark. I don’t get the stock marketing, at all. And I don’t really care to either. So I can totally vibe with this one. 🙂
