    Headlines crossing that Fed Chair Janet Yellen told Democrats that the economy had a ways to improve and that a rate hike was not imminent; headlines are being attributed to Schumer

    The Fed will not assist in talking the market lower....

    Still long the recently doubled position in Norboard, up 4.5% and a nice yield too.

    Shocking I can hold something longer than 30 minutes, I know.

    The short volatility from yesterday's close and this morning is kicking in nicely, too.

    Still an Oil, Rocks trees and Mounties economy up here. Its never diversified enough, although costs are higher here, too.

    Works well for me. Houses here are going for 700+

    When the C$ crossed par with the USD; I sold $2M for USD. I recently "covered" 1/2 of that.

    It's tempting here to buy back more; but we get stupid and elect Justin "long hair" Trudeau next year instead of our excellent PM Harper, the $C will be in the low 70's

    Busy so will be brief.

    * Ignore nasdaq -- watch Housing XHB!!! Taking off. I've doubled my position in lumber play Norboard. (NBD.TO)

    Lumber futures are going crazy, I am long those too

    Euro may be bottoming here, short term. Might help Oil prices.

    Bought Phillipines ETF (EPHE) today, major breakout.

    I'd be buying energy stocks today if not positioned.

    So the OP's thesis is the ENTIRE rally from sub 700 is due to QE??

    Last Fridays AAII. As is my view, high optimism levels have not been "sticky". Be intersting to see this weeks.

    If I was to short --- or avoid----- the most overvalued sectors of the market, and terrible investments for a long, long time, with uninspired businesses, would be "old tech".

    These would be companies like INTC, CSCO, QCOM, MSFT, and the like. Imo these are tired, or commodity companies and new tech is eating their lunch. How does John Chambers still have a job?

    Other rather overvalued companies I wouldn't touch, would be the legacy Dow companies like KO, JNJ, and the like. Some of these, I've heard, trade at a 30 PE. Ridiculous for a no growth company. (Can't recall which)

    Too expensive and bought for the divy.

    No positions in any of these.

    CR,

    You are right but exchange the word "Asia" for China.

    In the rest of Asia, there is a ton more to be done, not only in India.

    Long term. Waiting for courts to resolve the legal issues, properly.

    Airlines always will find a way to lose money. And it isn't hard, I own an airplane.

    As a general rule, one might be better off looking at emerging markets and related stocks, which are quietly trying to strengthen vs US.
