Remember when Gordon Gekko lectures Bud Fox about Anacott Steel in Wall Street. The price of the company is going nuts and Bud is losing his cool, until Gekko finally settles the kid down and tells him, "Don't get emotional about stock. It clouds the judgment."

I feel like I've been getting the same lecture all week from wiseguys and bookmakers.
