You seem to know how to write and maybe even read. Should probably work on your reading comprehension though. And I think Jim Cramer is as big of an idiot as the next guy but in this instance you are truly regarded.

When people say markets are forward looking what they mean is that they try to predict tomorrow's profits based on past and present information. A bank collapse represents new information that wasn't available previously. It takes a while for that information to fully work it's way through the market because it requires new analysis.

Clearly you've never built a financial model and needed to change the underlying parameters and then needed to rerun the model.

hilarious of you to assume they haven't thought about that before hand

You're a dumbass. Any model will have a range of assumptions a good model will account to solve extent for those assumptions changing. However if a new event happens they alters the likely range of those assumptions then updates need to be made.

im the dumbass but you can't think two steps infront you that other people might of already thought of variable. like someone almost gets paid to come up with all the different variables and solutions to them so that its ready for when it happens


MmmPeopleBacon t1_jefzjwj wrote

You think they are going to perfectly predict every variable? No they aren't thus the need for updates. Read a fucking introduction to finance pamphlet you absolute fucking regard

ah right, because you can't think of it, other can't either. nice one.
