one day events - a bad week - a 5% correction
What difference does it make...........look at the BIG PICTURE.
SDS - $400 to $45 over the past five years
Delta is holding SDS, down 95% and warns every they will lose money holding good stocks.
Over the past 5 years, those stocks are up 100%
The big picture will change, over time.
I do not see any chance of a market crash,
The Fed will talk about allowing rates to rise..........just it is just talk.
Ultra low rates will move higher, to just low rates.
Fools and paranoid posters will say, it is the END..........just as they have for the past 5 years.
The Fed will slowly raise rates over the next 20 years.....20 years or more.
The change will be so slow, most will not even notice.
Yes, week to week minor changes.............key work, minor changes.
1yr yield goes for .04 % to .08%..........ITS A 100% INCREASE. The fools will post.
In reality - .08 % is still an ultra low rate.
Nothing has changed. The Fed is not going to give up
After years and years of printing, the US Dollar is still strong. Too strong in my opinion
Instead of $85 Billion per month.......make it $100 Billion.

great point again Buzz, This weekend I am re-reading a old book I bought in 1973 warning of the dangers of stocks at the high level of the SPX at 100. The author was right since the next year the index fell to 60 but was wrong in the big picture as the SPX is now many times that. And from a older edition of the same book (1953) Whether DOW 275 was too high for sound investment in light of the spectacular advance from Dow 180.
The very long term trend is always up. The Dow index dates back to 1897 with a all time low of 28. Going back even further using Cowles Commission book we can check stock index averages back to 1870 which leaves a general picture of earning and stock price growth.
Some of us here like to trade which is OK. All traders make bad trades but the good traders know how to take a loss.
