John Hussman (Trades, Portfolio), in my view,displays an arrogance (that is, writes freely available weekly columns that - over the last five years - has basically labelled the market expensive, using criteria that, I think, he believes is only available to him )and market-ignorance (that is, he writes as one actually believing he can forecast the market's future - despite his forecasts and investment performance being consistently grossly inadequate.

I believe that, because of the above serious personality associated inappropriateness, John Hussman (Trades, Portfolio) should not be entrusted to manage others' investment funds.

My resultant opinion is that all investors remove their funds from his management.
