The market is behaving itself like a top tier executive after a good night’s sleep. The market is reading the Wall Street Journal (have not read this paper in five or so years) while eating roasted duck and poached eggs. The market is driving the Bentley patiently into the office and greeting the security guard at the entrance with a gingerly tip of the hat. Then the market is meeting with its top advisors and strategizing the next big move.
