Chart of the Week: Risk Appetite

Tuesday, March 07, 2006 | 08:00 AM

Jonathan Wilmot of CSFB notes that “Risk Appetite, which has been in the euphoria zone, is quickly approaching an 11-year high.” He notes that since 1981 there have been 7 prior euphoria spikes and in six of those episodes, global equity returns posted a new high for the cycle within 3 months.

Wilmot notes that vigilance is in order, but “it is probably too soon to panic.” Spikes into euphoria territory provide less urgent signals than dips into the panic zone. (hope springs eternal, or perhaps it simply reflects the psychological fact that it is easier to remain complacent for an extended period than to persist in a state of panic for weeks or months at a time).

-Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)]

-- end of quoting rodeo

I suppose that's like first being impossible; second being conceivable; and third being destiny.

....like watching a video of a train on a long track with a bridge out. If we were gods, we'd have possession of the video.
