Conspiracy Theories Prevent Us From Being Right

News
Phony numbers are not misleading investors. Conspiracy theory headlines 'sell' because people, in general, like to believe that something other than their own choices influences their lives. Investors like to point fingers at other, either real or imaginary, rather than adapt to the message of the market. For example, if stocks refuse to provide the public an easy entry point by correcting or crashing as predicted, it must be the phony numbers, mysterious short, fat fingers, or the plunge protection preventing us from being right. While human behavior is surprising consistent over time, very few experts study it.
