What the Smart Money Did on Friday and Monday

So has my personal portfolio. So, when those stocks jumped like a frog off a hot highway on Friday and Monday, I breathed a sigh of relief.“ The worst must be over. The smart money is piling back in.” That’s what I wanted to think. But the facts tell a different story … and prove why smart investors ignore short-term moves like these.
