    Hi Roger,

    Firstly, thank you to yourself and your team for sharing your thoughts so freely. I really appreciate all of your measured and intelligent analysis. You mentioned about wanting to see the “whites in the eyes” of a recovery so you are not “shooting at shadows”. Just wondering what that may look like? Will, in its simplest form be a reversal(or signs of a reversal) of the three ingredients that signal a near bottom? I.E. Panic subsiding, no major liquidity crisis appearing, no major forced selling of equities?

    Thanks again to the entire team, regards, Stuart

    • Hey Stuart, look for companies announcing capital raising and deeply discounted rights issues. That will be one sign. Also look for maximum (irrational) panic and capitulation (giving up).
