Face the Unknown To call the markets unstable is an understatement. In 2000, we saw an era of irrational exuberance with the coming of the ‘Dot-Com’ Bomb, followed by the ‘Free Money’ Bubble created by a low Federal Funds Rate in 2002 – 04. Later, in late 2007, the entire globe plunged into the great recession with the Subprime saga. Then the 2010 Flash Crash once again made investors uneasy. We rode the waves, bore our losses, but what knowledge do we carry forward as we move on? Observations The Market has become increasingly volatile.
