I think a reference to Markets are Anti-Inductive is in order. Esp.

There was a time when the Dow systematically tended to drop on Friday and rise on Monday, and once this was noticed and published, the effect went away.

Past history, e.g. "real estate prices have always gone up", is not private info.

I liked your post nonetheless and it remined me to buy more index funds.
