Seven consecutive drops in Industrial Production -- there has never ever not been a following Recession, as in since the data was created.
5th consecutive quarter of negative earnings growth, 6 consecutive month of negative trade in Japan, 85% of S&P earning beats direct result of non-GAAP numbers and manipulated (off-balance sheet) revenue, walking dead GDP falling below inflation, it's just not enough to keep the Dow in the 18,000's. In order to add another 2,500 Dow points and another 300 S&P points (Feb 11th to date) in the next 45 trading days, we need to know there's not even a sliver of a chance for any 'recovery' over the next 12 months, and of course, the U.S. Dollar needs to fundamentally collapse ... that would sure help set a new life time record high.

by the time Europe closes.
The Fed is the market, and the market drives all Fed decisions. There is no so-called economy other than Wall Street's, which is entirely supported by the Fed.
also, be advised that all ETF's and ETN's that short volatility will again lose 10% plus today.
and plan on eating out tonight using a coupon that Janet gave me, after I see Jungle Book. I promise to update the world on what I'm planning to eat for breakfast before the market closes, and provide details on where I bought my clothes. I will of course, visit numerous radio stations in order to give an update on interest rate forecasts, the global economy and the advantages of using a Blind Trust account to launder money and avoid taxes.
Ending 2015, 44% of "revenue" for S/P firms were generated in Europe, I call that relevant. At this time, 52% of all ETF's listed on the Nikkei are owned by the BOJ, too me, BOJ owns the Nikkei and consequentially is subject to one hell of a problem if their market ever does crash. Without China, fueling this U.S. financial cesspool would collapse. Collectively they have a lot to do with prices. For as long as people have tracked Industrial Production and its relation to the economy, there has never ever "not been" a Recession when Industrial Production has fallen for 7 straight months, which it just did. This is also now the 5th consecutive negative earning growth period, the 5th. The P/E ratio on S/P is now at and higher than in 2007 and 2008 although GDP growth is below 'real' inflation, regardless of what that POS Yellen says. In essentially 45 trading days the DOW has risen just over 16%, 2,500 points on not one signal positive economy disclosure. May be you should get some help with 'actual data' rather than using text messages from boiler rooms and twitter as a guide to the economy's stability, and health of this market and the country.
The DOW has risen about 16% since Feb 11th ... 16% in this economy, with essentially zero interest rates on savings, with zero increase in Social Security 2 years now. And, the P/E ratio on the S/P is now higher than it was in 07 and 08.
