It isn't the bird flu, although money movers are timid buggers who bottle out over most everything. So under normal circumstances the markets should bounce back in a month or so. However... What has struck me is that it is twelve years since the last decent recession and this might be the start of the next one. So do I buy a few shares or keep the money under the bed where it belongs? I am torn between my natural caution and hog like greed.
