The Market Loves A Crowd

from the come-on-in-and-buy dept

Here’s an article saying that some folks are afraid with all this downturn stuff that the “individual investor” will turn his or her back on the market, making things worse. The article suggests that the market is now reliant on the individual investor. This is silly. “The market” isn’t reliant on anything. There are individual companies that people (and other companies) chose to invest in. It shouldn’t have to do with the market at all, but how comfortable people are investing in specific opportunities.
