People, I can’t help reblogging this one – it is a defining article with regards to my understanding of Mrs. Market. The language used is provocative – on purpose – so that the message imprints itself in the mind of the reader. Believe me, the insinuations are innocent and harmless, and if the essence of Mrs. Market becomes a concept to you, my purpose is solved. For heaven’s sake, people, focus on the message and not on the language. The message is noble, and is supposed to help you win at investing or trading. Cheers 🙂
Ben Graham gave us Mr. Market.
I’m sure you remember the polite but schizophrenic-manic-depressive-to-overtly-optimistic fellow.
Then, over the years, Mr. Market had a sex-change.
Meet Mrs. Market, the suave, canniving, multiply schizophrenic, cold-blooded and “efficient” ((she thinks she’s efficient)) global phenomenon.
If there’s one thing she wants, it is respect. Yes, she wants your full attention. Either that, or she wants you to lay off. Or, she’ll just pull your pants down. Period.
Her quantum of movement and also her frequency of movement nowadays has become nerve-wracking. Not to forget her speed of movement – play her if you can take her speed and if you have a sound heart condition.
She rewards some of those who look at her all the time. First she wants undivided attention, and then she wants you to know her levels. If she crosses a level, she wants you to join her. Then she rewards you.
