'There is nothing quite like a
bull market to make people think they are smart,'
'...All big bull markets, secular bull markets end in a bubble. Everyone
chases the conventional wisdom, following what they read in the press,
and the presents the smart investor with opportunities.'
writes Jim Rogers in Street Smarts
