I missed this 9/17 NY Times column by quant finance svengali Paul Wilmott. Nicely timed and delivered market call:
Iâ€™ve taken to comparing the current situation to â€œHamlet.â€ Weâ€™ve had the deaths of Polonius, Claudius and Laertes â€” that is, the falling house prices, the rising commodity prices and the collapse of banks. As of now there is no sign of Hamlet himself, a catastrophic fall in the markets. Yet itâ€™s difficult to believe that markets are not going to undergo a climactic implosion some time soon. If the current situation doesnâ€™t fill investors with fear, then what are they smoking?
