The problem with midwinter blues is you start seeing the clouds instead of the light - and you start planning to sell stocks instead of buy, says Evan Newmark, who asks: Has anything that's happened lately (the promise of gridlock, Bernanke, the Massachusetts election) changed your fundamental view of the market?

    Hell Yes. I see any advance as a time to sell half my holdings. This will not end well. Hopefully the people will regain their sanity. And vote out these clowns in congress.

    I didn't realize the only two options in this world are "Bush/Cheney" and "Obama/Biden".

     

    Bring back the good old days when people could think outside the box.

    It hasn't changed my view of the market - I still think it's overbought and crooked.

    does "your fundamental view of the market" have any relevance at all if you think the market has another 5-15% to fall before resuming an uptrend?

    Hey Evan, how much did Goldman pay you to publish this garbage. Stop being a sell out and see what's going on in America. Holy crap, reading what you just wrote was no better than turning on CNBC and listening to those "pump monkeys".

    Have you heard of OVERBOUGHT? The stock prices have already factored in ALL expectations and more.

    Until interest rates rise, the stock market is the target for new money as even the chance for some gain is better than 0%. And given the "fact" that everyone believes/hopes the market won't go back down...makes it a riskless play. Ha ha.
