    Lol, that would mean a collapse in about 18 months.

     

    What is different is the amount of liquidity that has been added. I covered this in my article here. http://bit.ly/1cbqvp8
    We are looking like normal consolidation taking place from now through March. We may bottom at 13000 to 13500 on the DOW, but that would still not be Bearish. Remember when everyone is screaming in Jan or Feb, that is the time to buy.

    Very Interesting chart, I would have though there would have been a sell signal in 2000.

    Agreed about liquidity.

     

    I respect Hussman a lot but he has been completely blind to the central bank liquidity tsunami and the global war against deflation.

     

    As long as trillions are being tossed at the banks there will be no crash. (A correction? Sure. But those punctured shares will be quickly bid up shortly thereafter with super cheap money).

    I have been loading up on SPXS from 35-40. I would sell at 45 because I have been burned by this bull market before.

    Hussman has been saying that for the last 4 years, HSGFX tells a pretty good story on how wrong he has been. I am sure he will make a correct call on a correction one day, just like the dead watch I have in my drawer that tells the correct time twice a day.

    I have followed John for 15 years. He was right about the tech bubble and the housing bubble. Like myself, he was early but correct and not being down 50% twice in 13 years has more than made up for underperformance during the run ups. These last 4 years have done nothing for investors who 100k in their 401-k early in 2000. That's why the all the jobs are going to 55 year olds and over.

    Relax, put some stops in and go for coffee. Best I can glean from the luminous ether ( http://abt.cm/18oc67Y ) is all is okay in Willoughby for the moment. Tomorrow can be all different.

     

    Looking at a monthly chart of the US$ it seems it is in a steady decline from back in 09-01-03, and inflation therefore is rising regardless what the NGM's say.

     

    It appears the dollar has found its resting place at about 80.25 and I predict it will continue to decend although very slowly so as not to alert anyone we are in trouble.

     

    As the NGM's continue to buy anything anyone else does not want, like our lovely treasuries at zero percent. [for the life of me I can't understand why people don't like getting nothing on their investments, but I am still learning]

     

    With all quiet on all the fronts, and it appears everyone is happy with all the financial nonsense occuring daily, I suppose, for now, buying stocks and selling gold is just what they want.

     

    I for one, don't believe in these Voodoo economics and one day soon methinks we shall see a 'correction' of major proportions. I am better at predicting the weather than I am financials, but....
    I've said my two cents. B E W A R E...

    Reality check: did you not see the people fighting in Walmart for the objects of their desire?
    Stocks are going up forever because people consume, want, desire, and have no self-control.
    Tell your teenage daughter she must wait another year for her iPad. What happens?
    Tell your wife she must drive that old car for two more years. What happens?
    Tell your son he can't take that trip with his friends. What happens?
    Tell yourself you really shouldn't buy that big TV. What do you do anyway?
    Tell yourself you don't deserve that vacation. What do you do?
    Stocks give you a piece of the action. Pick the winners, or buy a mutual fund, index fund, or ETF etc.
    Winners are easy to see if you look around you: Apple, Nike, Caterpillar, Deere, BMW, Nestle, Pfizer, etc.
