    Was hoping for 14,900; this market is invincible I guess.

    Buy the dips. That seems to have worked through the great recession

    Man, SA is getting so boring lately. Where are all the doom and gloomers? Usually there are about a dozen folks here with 2000+ posts saying "the day of reckoning is nigh!" and other colorful language... what gives? LOL! Maybe they all fled to zerohedge?

    LOL. I just went to zerohedge because you said that and now I feel so much better. Usually when the last bear turns bull is when we would see a crash, now that I know there are still plenty of bears around or so they say. XD

    It's about time we face the fact that this recovery as lopsided or not has legs and get on with the business of self and national improvement.

    Agreed, I actually think that a crash is now impossible ever because the Fed obviously has this under control. The moment the market wobbles, it will apply a very fine tuned approach that will make sure that the market will continue its upward ascent.

    it's mathematically impossible to grow 30%+ per year without eventual crash. From the other side if Fed removes risk - it virtually guarantees another several 30%+ years

    if we build on capital preservation and structural upgrade we can offset the natural decompression part of the cycle.

    It does seem as if Washington is more concerned these days about the stock market than about... everything else. Makes you wonder.
