Bull Market - A random market movement causing an investor to mistake himself for a financial genius.

Bear Market - A 6 to 18 month period when the kids get no allowance, the wife gets no jewelry and the husband gets no sex.

Stock split - When your ex-wife and her lawyer split all your assets equally between themselves.

Market Correction - The day after you buy stocks.

Cash Flow - The movement your money makes as it disappears down the toilet.

Day Trader - Someone who is disloyal from 9-5.

Institutional Investor - Past year investor who’s now locked up in a nut house.

Standard & Poor - Your life in a nut shell.
