Best Market Timers For 2013
Guess who won 2nd place?

  • Pull-back continues.
  • Mid-term election years usually see a 10% to 20% correction. Heard that on CNBC today.
  • Thursday and Friday are bearish spiral dates.
  • Friday is also the 11th. 11 is an important number.
  • 4/11/14 adds up to 11.
  • 4/11/2014 adds up to 13.
  • MH370 = 4+8+3+7+0=22 (11's big bother)
  • I think something big is going to happen on Friday.
