Roubini: The Biggest Bear on Wall Street

Wednesday, October 18, 2006 | 09:48 AM

My Slow-Motion Slow Down thesis -- a gradually slowing economy that sees GDP eventually slip to 0, and eventually takes a major toll on the stock market -- is almost mild compared with NYU's Nouriel Roubini. His economic thesis is for a full blown recession in the US come mid-2007, along with a major slow down in China (but not a recession).

Why are we listening to this guy? He has cost me about $30K in losses (worthless expired puts) over the last 4 months. It's great that he sees a slowdown coming, but the market sure doesn't and that is really all that matters to a trader. Economists can forecast that a recession will be here, but if the market doesn't forecast it, you lose money trading on the info.

Barry, you run a nice blog, but man are your predictions WAY off. I mean, being smart and being right don't always go hand-in-hand.



Jeff, Who on earth told you to puts? Not me -- and please don't place your bad trading decisions on anyone else but yourself --

Its especially annoying to someone who A) flipped Bullish on June 13th, and made good money form that call; 2) has REPEATEDLY stated that its way too early to short; iii) I rec'd IBM as a BUY yesterday, pre-earnings. Its up 4 beans today.

I don't know who's more frustrating, the cheerleaders who spin every last data point as positive regardless, or the people who refuse to
take responsibility for their own errors.
