Is this how stock market work?

#1
It was autumn, and the Red Indians on the remote reservation asked
their New Chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he
was a Red Indian chief in a modern society, he couldn't tell what the
weather was Going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he
replied to his Tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and
that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared.

But also being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea.

He Went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and
asked "Is the coming winter going to be cold?" "It looks like this
winter is Going to be quite cold indeed," the meteorologist at the
weather service Responded.

So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even
more Wood. A week later, he called the National Weather Service again.
"Is it Going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes," the man at National
Weather Service again replied, "It's definitely going to be a very
cold winter."
The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect
Every scrap of wood they could find.

Two weeks later, he called the National Weather Service again. "Are
you Absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"
"Absolutely," The Man replied. "It's going to be one of the coldest
winters ever."

"How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.

The weatherman replied, "The Red Indians are collecting wood like
Crazy."

This is how stock markets work!!!

Interesting indeed.

Looks more like chicken and egg syndrome- Chicken producing egg or vice-versa but there the similarity ends. Bulls and bears at any given time are mututally exclusive. The weather thing reminds of Shahrukh Khan's movie ,"Swades" in which an ordinary villager had a rather adhoc way of determining the weather.

So, fan of Shahrukh Khan :) I liked the script of movie "Swades".

Another gem from your hat nk. Split my side laughing to this one. Mirrors the stock market psyche does'nt it. Keep 'em coming. :)
Thanks jaideep. Here is another one:

A man calls his stockbroker all anxious and out of breath with this urgency in his voice. He says, "Sell it all, sell everything fast, right away."

The stockbroker tries to explain that the market is cyclical in nature and that for long term outlook stocks still remain the place to be.

The man says, "Let me tell you a secret. You know I've been married for 6 years now and I've been your client for 5 years."

"Yes, go on," the stockbroker says.

"Well. My wife has this thing about the market. Her grandparents lost it all in the great crash and ever since then her family found investing in the market akin to original sin. When we got married I promised her that I would follow in her parents footsteps and never venture in the stock market and always leave all our money under the mattress."

"Wow, I didn't know that. I guess you want the money because the market is going down, in case she asks for it."

"No, I want the money because she ordered a new mattress and it is being delivered in two days."
