Thread: Contrarian Headlines?

  1. #1

    Default Contrarian Headlines?

    We have heard of the Time, Newsweek, Barron's etc., Front Cover contrarian headlines, but is the Drudge Report also a contrarian play?

    Today's Headline:

    'WE ARE ON THE VERGE OF A GREAT, GREAT DEPRESSION'

    I like TSPTalk and I think most people here are well-intentioned but if I followed their advice, I'd be hunkered down in my basement with a thousand cans of tuna fish.

    Down over 2%- all because the House rejected a raise in the debt limit.

    Today's headline on CBSMarketwatch:

    "Dow 20,000, here we come."

    Does this offset the great depression guy?

    This week's Barron's... Jinx?

    They're not always wrong, but their big headlines don't have the best record historically...
