With respect to trading - if I were to place a lofty Jesse Livermore at the top of the OP 1 - 10 scale - then imo - a person with the market acumen of say a '2' - would be capable of discerning the relative level of expertise represented by the posters on this forum, or any other stock related BB. Respectfully - if you are an active trader, or even an aggressive investor/well versed armchair marketeer- it's pretty easy to suss another's experience level - first blush.
Admittedly, the premise of this thread kinda baffles me.
Coming to terms with basic economic principles, and the US business cycle in relationship to the stock market, has been a new and exciting challenge for many of us - but the stock market is not the economy, and the two often seem to get smushedtogether.

Care to elaborate on why you see 5000 as the bottom and what that will look like? I am very interested to hear your opinion.
