Economic data has been horrible, and everything points to a recession. I've read some good articles by some smart people stating the same. Of course the market will ramp higher, and hype tv will parade all the bulls out, saying the market is a forward looking mechanism. What a crock of #$%$ that is. Yesterday, it was the fed coming to the rescue. Thats a heck of a way to invest. The only reason stocks can go up is for the fed to supply the $$$$. Earnings are coming down, and some say , fast, so stocks should be going down, but not in this new age market.
