  • Wow, bullish! Now the market now has a lot more room to run with so many skeptics.

  • More like the soon-to-be bagholders are still bullish. Smart money is pulling out of equities.

  • The large ups and downs of the economy seem fairly regular and therefore predictable. The low point of the Great Depression was about 1933. The low of the Great Recession, 1973, and once we get past the November election and The Fed lets interest rates rise, the DOW low will come in 2013.


    The forty year gap between the lows and the ten year recovery period are due to each generation's spending following their predictable life cycle. When Harry Dent wrote "The Great Boom Ahead" he pretty much spelled it all out. Unfortunately, he was discredited by his later books, probably ghost written, which were designed to keep him on the speaking circuit, with their ridiculous prognostications.
