  • Ans: Taxes
    Most of the people who wanted out of this run already left. The people left now almost all have profits. If you bailout now, the short-term types will owe-assuming they're earning over $125,000 per year-almost 30% in Federal & State taxes on their profits. Nobody wants to pay that much, so they hold. That's the reason the SPY never declines more than 5% on these dips. As soon as it does, those with stocks, and cash, transfer that cash into stocks when they see a pullback. So long as the Fed keeps that 10YR under 3%, there's just no good alternative to stocks. PEs could go well over historical highs, 30, if the Fed keeps rates low like Bernake said a week ago.

    C Yaz - Da Bear CGDGE ( we're looking at a 3,000 S&P500 before the crunch if the above is correct. )
