Octogenarian Richard Russell is one of the few bears remaining: "Dow 10,000 will be tested in the next few months… Something big is in the wind, and the stock market senses it." Barry Ritholtz counters that stocks have been pulling back on lighter volume; "that sort of back and fill is what we typically want to see in healthy markets."

    Not sure how the market is "sensing" danger when it continues to melt up.

    Rough crowd of comments, open the blinds, read the newspaper, talk to small business owners, take a peak at South America, China, Europe, and Japan all reporting downward GDP, sorry I join this gentleman in being a BEAR outside of Apple and a few other strong stocks I own.

     

    Disclosure: Bear since December and nothing yet has changed my mind.
