[Quote No.34038] Need Area: Money > Invest
"[What happens at the top of a bull market as it starts to crash?] Those who had been riding the upward wave decide now is the time to get out. Those who thought the increase would be forever find their illusion destroyed abruptly, and they, also, respond to the newly revealed reality by selling or trying to sell. And thus the rule, supported by the experience of centuries: the speculative episode always ends not with a whimper but with a bang." - John Kenneth Galbraith
Famous economist. Quote from his book 'A Short History of Financial Euphoria'.

"I'll give you the bottom 10% and the top 10% of any move if I get to keep the middle 80%. [Because buying too early when the stock is still falling or selling too late when it's no longer rising has destroyed many investors' profits and wealth.]" - Bernard Baruch
Famous stock broker, share investor and later U.S. statesman. He was particularly famous for selling out all his shares just before the 1929 Share Market Crash and the subsequent Great Depression. He stated often he never greedily tried to get every last penny profit out of his investments, prefering to sell before the share topped and dropped.

[Quote No.34049] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Once public opinion is convinced that the increase in the quantity of money will continue and never come to an end, and that consequently the prices of all commodities will not cease to rise [inflation], everybody becomes eager to buy as much as possible and restrict his cash holdings to minimum size... If the credit expansion is not stopped in time, the boom turns to crack-up boom: the flight into real values begins, and the whole monetary system founders." - Ludwig von Mises

"Mathematics is ordinarily considered as producing precise and dependable results; but in the stock market the more elaborate and abstruse the mathematics the more uncertain and speculative are the conclusions we draw there from... Whenever calculus is brought in, or higher algebra, you could take it as a warning that the operator was trying to substitute theory for experience, and usually also to give to speculation the deceptive guise of investment." - Benjamin Graham

[Quote No.34086] Need Area: Money > Invest
"[If you think the price of gold is not manipulated by governments and central banks in an effort to disguise this signal of their currency debasement - as well as fear and inflation - the following quote should dispel that misconception:] We looked into the abyss if the gold price rose further. A further rise would have taken down one or several trading houses, which might have taken down all the rest in their wake. Therefore at any price, at any cost, the central banks had to quell the gold price, manage it. It was very difficult to get the gold price under control but we have now succeeded. The US Fed was very active in getting the gold price down. So was the U.K." - Eddie George

"[Even very smart people can lose a great deal of their wealth in share investing. It is a specialised field and anyone who thinks that it is easy is mistaken and probably about to lose money and gain an education. The brilliant physicist Sir Isaac Newton learnt this to his horror when he lost a great deal of a life's savings when he invested in the South Sea Bubble and it crashed. He went on to say...] I can calculate the motions of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people." - Sir Issac Newton
Brilliant physicist, who came up with the physical laws of motion. He is considered one of the smartest men to have ever lived. This quote is from 1721, after he lost huge amounts of money in the South Sea Bubble.

"There can be few fields of human endeavor in which history counts for so little as in the world of finance.

It is wise to remember what the highly successful investor, Sir John Templeton said, 'The four most dangerous words in investing are, 'It's different this time.']" - John Kenneth Galbraith

[Quote No.34128] Need Area: Money > Invest
"[Money supply in theory is a good forward indicator for the economy and inflation, however in practice it is problematic:] Let me suggest to you that the monetary aggregates as we measure them are getting increasingly complex and difficult to integrate into a set of forecasts. The problem that we have is not that money is unimportant, but how we define it. By definition, all prices are indeed the 'ratio of an exchange of a good for money.' And what we seek is what that is. Our problem is we used M-1 at one point as the proxy of money, and it turned out to be a very difficult indicator of any financial state. We then went to M-2 and had the similar problem. We have never done M-3 per se because it largely reflects the extent of expansion of the banking industry. And when in effect banks expand, in and of itself, it doesnít tell you terribly much about what the real money is. So our problem is not that we do not believe in sound money. We do. We very much believe that, if you have a debased currency, that you will have a debased economy. The difficulty is in defining what part of our liquidity structure is truly money. We have had trouble ferreting out proxies for that for a number of years. And the standard we employed is whether it gives us a good forward indicator of the direction of finance and the economy. Regrettably, none of those which (?) have been able to develop, including MZM Ė has not done that. That does not mean that we think that money is irrelevant. It means that we think our measures of money have been inadequate. And, as a consequence of that, we, as I have mentioned previously, have downgraded the use of the monetary aggregates for monetary policy purposes, until we are able to find a more stable proxy for what we believe is the underlying money in the economy. [Representative Ron Paul: 'So itís hard to manage something you canít define?'] It is not possible to manage something you canít define." - Alan Greenspan

"People don't seem to grasp easily the fundamentals of stock trading. I have often said that to buy on a rising market [or to sell into a falling market] is the most comfortable way of buying [selling] stocks. Now, the point is not so much to buy as cheap as possible or go short [sell] at top prices, but to buy or sell at the right time [when you are in tune with the way the market is moving]. When I am bearish and I sell a stock, each sale must be at a lower level than the previous sale [or else I may not be in tune with the market and my be making a mistake]. When I am buying, the reverse is true. I must buy on a rising scale [price]. I don't buy long stock on a scale down [that is as the price falls, believing I know the value of the share better than the market does and trying to average my total price down - like many very successful value investors do. On the contrary], I buy on a scale up." - Jesse Livermore

"It has always seemed to me the height of dam foolishness to trade on tips. I suppose I am not built the way a tip-taker is. I sometimes think that tip-takers are like drunkards. There are some who can't resist the craving and always look forward to those jags which they consider indispensable to their happiness. It is so easy to open your ears and let the tip in. To be told precisely what to do to be happy in such a manner that you can eagily obey is the next nicest thing to being happy which is a mighty long first step toward the fulfilment of your heart's desire. It is not so much greed made blind by eagerness as it is hope bandaged by the unwillingness to do any thinking." - Jesse Livermore

It is the net result over a period of time in which he is interested." - Jesse Livermore
