This is a good article, but very, very brief, that touches on the important point that the prices in the market can be quite disconnected from the state of the economy. I posted this in the Beginners Lounge as it is often beginners who are most beguiled by gurus in the current market claiming the economy is extremely weak (globally, not necessarily Australia) and therefore not to participate in the stock market (or worse, short it) ... even as the US stock market (for example) has undergone a massive rise.
From the article: Indeed, prices matter a great deal more to traders than theories or annoying things like "Objective Reality. To a trader, prices ARE the objective reality; to them economic theorists are peripheral players trying to rationalize reality.
The article says there will be more following, which I look forward to.
