    "another month, or maybe two. Maybe -- just maybe -- right up until next earnings season, when we'll have a confluence of problems:" You are right Karl, we are all waiting to see how Europe plays out and we know it is going to bring the markets down sometime by the second quarter.

    "Greece will be on European life support for a very long time if they stay in and there is no disorderly default." John, I love this observation. I am not looking forward to how the rest of PIIGS plays out this year either.

  • Market Valuation Indicators: Most Show Reduced Overvaluation [View article]
    "At present they suggest a cautious long-term outlook and guarded expectations." Doug good info, thank you. Agreeing with the cautious long term outlook I have been comtemplating the end of rising earnings based mostly upon reducing spending. This will come soon and what will the markets do when the reality of earnings catching up with the lagging economy? You are right, caution is in the air.

  • The World Economy Is Hanging By A Thread [View article]
    "Thus, the “if you go, I go, we all go” theme comes into play more than ever before." Good article, very informative and I agree whole-heartedly with your assessment of each countries attachment to the world economy. The only way to counter this as a trader is to design option plans that allows one to make money in either bullish or bearish markets!

  • There's Little For Labor To Celebrate On Labor Day [View article]
    "With numerous negative economic reports and the economy barely growing, it’s clear that the unemployment rate won’t be declining anytime soon. In fact, recent projections point to unemployment above 8% during the 2012 election year...."

    I have learned that the economy will go theway it will go and there is no amount of manipulation that came just stop its momentum. Even the stimulus money is artificial propping up. When it is over, the economy resumes its cycle.

    The best thing for us that trade options can do is have aplan to make money as the markets go up and down. Then you are not that worried.
