Commentary: Worldwide panic is creating an apparent buying opportunity in equities. However, I believe the ultimate low will probably be months, if not years, in the making due to the excesses that were allowed to build up in the economy. The Fed has done a very poor job of managing interest rates this decade which created an atmosphere where risk was almost completely disregarded. Bernanke is now holding the very heavy bag that Greenspan left him.
