I read ZH every day and it's fair to say I've learned a lot about market mechanics that I'd otherwise be completely unaware of.
There's no doubt about it, Zero Hedge is probably the best news orientated blog around, but I sometimes wonder if that's because most of the news is bad, and bad news sells!
It's certainly good at painting a bearish picture of the financial industry and anything related to it. If they are bearish on something and it ticks down a bit, then they'll post a chart of it extrapolating it to 0.
In fact, everything is extrapolated to zero whether it be the USD, the EUR, Equities etc.... If it can go to zero they will find a way to explain how it's going to happen....unless it's Gold which they are bullish on and extrapolate that to the moon!
The sarcasm and wit is extremely entertaining and there is clearly a lot of intelligence behind the authors.
However, the bearishness can be so extreme you may leave the website and convince yourself you need to buy a bunker and stock up on Gold and tinned food to survive. That day may come, but I think the content is quite a few years too early for people to take that kind of thing seriously.
It's unfortunate that the followers, or rather, the majority of followers who leave comments definitely don't do the site any favours and I'm sure people have been put off reading the site based on the type of useless halfwit comments that are left, usually by people who clearly don't understand the article they're leaving a comment under!
Overall though, ZH is very entertaining, educational, and does add some value so it gets a good rating from me.
