We at BloggingStocks and everywhere else make the full gambit of prognostications, suggestions, predictions, guesses, analogies, and so forth in an attempt to improve potential investment opportunities for all our readers and provoke discussion.
All of this has its limits, but, if you are a fan of Professor Nassim NicholasTaleb and his best seller The Black Swan
then you already have been warned that the events that have the greatest impact on our lives and our investments are most often unpredictable. We cannot predict the future nor can we anticipate the tragedies that will tank our portfolio's.
While I do believe predicting the future is, how should I say, futile, there are general clues as to which way the wind blows.
