For What It's Worth

For What It's Worth - Buffalo Springfield

Sung to the music of Buffalo Springfield (YouTube):

There's something happening here
But what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a margin clerk over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop:  Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look – the Dow’s going down

There're trend lines being drawn
Nobody’s right, ‘cause everybody’s long
Young chartists tweaking support lines
That now serve as resistance from behind

It's time we raise our stop:   Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look – Dow’s going down

What a field day for the bears
A thousand sheeple caught unaware
It’s stinging longs -- they’re startin’ to whine
As the shorts say “Hooray for our side”

It's time we hit their stops:  Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look – the Dow’s going down

Mass euphoria strikes deep
Into your account it will creep
It starts with your long-only trades
Another decline, a bully takes the candy away

We better check our stops:  Hey, what’s that sound?
