This bull market is about to get ugly. Yellen is going to fix our problems in six months, good luck. Russia is going to hose up markets - yes. Long term bull looking for a 2011 reset and then start back up again. Hope I am wrong. Keep dry powder and stops in place. good luck.
True, the bull is long in the tooth, but remember, it's coming from a very unusual (housing, credit crunch, etc.) situation. Until the Fed begins to seriously hike interest rates (and please note, interest on home mortgages just dropped) there's still wiggle room, Putin be damned. (And to be sure, he will, one day). (JMHO)
