While it may seem logical that the market... needs a rest after having had its best trading day of the year recently, it is easy to overlook the fact that a session creates a tremendous outperformance anxiety. Many market players are now far more worried about being underinvested than they are about a downward reversal.

It also released an earnings video that was mostly a greatest-hits montage of their most impressive machines, so you may be... surprised to learn that there was also some stuff in it about the tractor business! Not only is it going well, but the company expects it to continue as such for a very long time.
