    This type of publication by Barron is one of the reasons equity will keep moving higher as skepticism/skittishness throw out the weak in the hearts and compensates those that have the brain the sit their positions in this parabolic rally that is just in its infant.


    Many people keep talking about year end as if it makes any difference to the colour of $$$. Money has no colour or time even if you make that on Christmas day ..that would be terrific lol


    Also did Barron get long at the lows ? Or just talking ??


    Disclosure: Very bullish and long ..I entered on time as well

    Also this exactly when one needs Jesse Livermore to correctly make sense of the underlying as here

    This is too simple, I usually have to decide when to take a tax loss. This time I will be short, put in a trailing stop,and we'll meet at the coffee shop and discuss our next win.
    LET THE STOPS TAKE THEM OUT. Get a discipline and follow it.

    No doubt the emerging markets are cheap.

    The market has overshot to the upside, but "you can't fight the Fed."

    Sector rotation will certainly happen. US equities will sell off and Latim and Asian will rise.


    Also commodities will rise.

    I wonder what it was in Sept 2008 that somehow stopped savvy folks from "taking profits" or "rotating" - I mean there was plenty of time right? So no one got hurt in that big nasty decline?

    "So no one got hurt in that big nasty decline?"


    Only those that sold out and sat on the side lines. That was a quick, but deep, bump in the road. Only up over 150% since then using indexes like the DJIA. Don't forget about dividends since then as well.


    I was in and still am. So if you asked me about 2008/2009 it is just a pothole on a long road.

    I mean - you see a decline coming, but you can just ride the trend until you get the sign to get out - right? Just like in Sept 2008?

    "Taper" is the economic version of Bigfoot or The Great Pumpkin.


    Keep waiting to see will be a long wait.


    Expect gold to drift higher as each week passes without a taper.


    Trillions more dollars in existence every year...but ounces of gold can't hope to keep up the pace of dollar creation.


    Gold is priced in dollars.

    Couldn't agree more. With a tool like the trailing stop, why bail. End of year is historically a great time to be in, not out.

    Last week Barron's said the wasn't a "bubble" in most US equity issues. This week Barron's is saying that US equity issues are looking "relatively expensive." Which is it Barron's?
