In this business, you never stop learning. Let me put it another way. If you stop learning, you're on your way to going out of business. Wall Street is a tough teacher but also a good teacher. If you have any weakness -- arrogance, laziness, stinginess, cowardice, procrastination -- the market will zero in on that weakness and make you pay dearly.
Richard Russell in The Oracle Of Dow $$ from Barron's (6/12/00)There is no shortage of media accounts that try to answer our questions about the market today, but there is a shortage within these accounts of relevant facts or considerated interpretations of them. Many news stories in fact seem to have been written under a deadline to produce something--anything--to go along with the numbers from the market.
