Is this how stock Markets Work...???

Post by LSE on Sat Oct 31, 2015 8:00 pm

It was autumn, and the Red Indians on the remote reservation asked
their New Chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he
was a Red Indian chief in a modern society, he couldn't tell what the
weather was Going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he
replied to his Tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and
that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared.

But also being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea.

He Went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and
asked "Is the coming winter going to be cold?" "It looks like this
winter is Going to be quite cold indeed," the meteorologist at the
weather service Responded.

So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even
more Wood. A week later, he called the National Weather Service again.
"Is it Going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes," the man at National
Weather Service again replied, "It's definitely going to be a very
cold winter."
The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect
Every scrap of wood they could find.

Two weeks later, he called the National Weather Service again. "Are
you Absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"
"Absolutely," The Man replied. "It's going to be one of the coldest
winters ever."

"How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.

The weatherman replied, "The Red Indians are collecting wood like
Crazy."

Message : No one can predict the next winter is going to be realy cold or not, But being a winter it must be cold by definition.
Similarly any stock will go up in long run or some day, but really difficult to predict what will happen in next moment.

What we can note here is that the Red Indian chief doesn't have enough experience to make a reasonable judgement.

When he tries to reply on a so called expert, they don't turn out to be experts.

If both are uninformed, lack knowledge and experience then it will be a disaster. At least one party should know what they are doing.

It's always easy to depend on someone else... in return when everyone is depending on someone else nothing happens...

MR depended on Sumanadasa Abegunawardana.. Sumanadasa depended on MR.. They both went to a disaster..

People of this country depend on astrologers and one astrologer depend on anther astrologer,, and country is facing a disaster together with people..

good point

At least now we have to really consider on Astrology..

I never believe in astrology and never did any activity based on astrology or horoscope reading..

Sri Lanka got independence and from that day on wards all parliament elections, all presidential elections, oath takings, naming children, getting married, constructing houses all happened based on horoscopes...

In USA, Japan and in all developed countries nothing happened based on horoscopes...

Politically even the modern Ranil goes to Thirupathi...So is MS,.. So is SB.. So is.....all.....
