You may be in for a surprise. i expect a lot of swings in the market similar to last summer but the bull thesis is still prevailing and here is why: When the Fed tightens after a brief shock the market normally rises. The Fed tightens when they begin to see the economy turning. We are at the beginning of that now. As a safety net Bernanke said the fed was not going away that the training wheels would be gradual in coming off. I don't think you can just buy the market but you can buy premiere companies and get better returns than the S&P . No doubt. You should be careful though about shorting the S&P and you better not short DIS until after the market read on the acceptance of The Lone Ranger . The buzz is excellent. Big Budget but it looks like another Pirates series in the making. be careful.
