Thanks for visiting Dear Mr. Market… 

This blog attempts to educate and entertain investors about the world of finance and the stock market. It’s brought to you in the form of letters written to the fictional character, “Mr. Market”.

This character was created by Benjamin Graham who developed the Value based approach to investing in the 1930s. In Graham’s book, “The Intelligent Investor”, the character of Mr. Market is always willing to either buy your stock position or sell you more; sometimes at what appears to be a reasonable price and then at other times at a flat out insulting one.

Mr. Market can be very cruel and also quite rewarding to investors ; always playing with their emotions. He is volatile and very unpredictable.

Regardless of how much you study him and try to figure him out, Mr. Market can simply humble even the most educated and experienced investor…
