TheInflationist Weekend Summary 30.01.2010

Filed under Dow Jones, Stocks

This week has been fantastic for bears. We posted our 1937 vs 2007 comparison a week ago - and included a road map (in yellow, 2nd chart below). We even stuck our necks out to say we are going to hold our shorts to sub 10k - and then leave the rest of the icing for the next trader.
