    On his statement this week Bernanke has made it very clear -
    The us economy continues to improve by the pace is moderate. Markets expectation are too hogh. Investors are too optimistic.

     

    It's time to re-estimates market values, to re-balance all risks and figure the real economic values of equities, currencies & bonds.

     

    A market with maybe only 10 leaders (AAPL, IBM, INTC, MSFT, CHKP, KO, PEP, NKE, TGT) climbing while thousands of stocks declining, is a clear sign of a coming pullback of 5% to 8%. Such pull back is necessary for future summer rally, only if the main nacro econ indicators will support it.
