I think it is irresponsible to name a figure one way or the other. Some people are getting the jitters over the prospect that the feds will jack up interest rates again because of inflation. Who knows what they will do. I've noticed that often a rate increase, thouth feared by many, sometimes buoys up the market which is then perceived to have become more rational. If they do go up, that might happen again. On the other hand, if they aren't raised, it could perverselly press the stock down. All of this started with the "soft landing" philosophy some time back and I just can't get upset over it.
