As stocks run higher, analysts continue to get more bearish (charts here), notes Schaeffer's Ryan Detrick, believing this bodes well for a continuation of the bull market. Pretty fair contrarian indicators, analysts remained relatively bearish throughout the entire 2002-07 bull run.

    The only reason we are not in a bear market is because of the Fed and the market's addiction to liquidity. It will happen, however no one can predict the timing. Where would the market be without liquidity? Look at the the US$. It's starting to become a joke. I am from Canada. 5 years ago, our dollar was worth 65 cents US. Today, it is worth $1.03. The US is headed in the same direction as many other countries who have continued down the same path. The only ninkinpoops are Helicopter BEN and his sidekick Super Mario. Welcome to $5 per gallon gas and rising inflation. Better start selling your $US before the rest of the world starts dumping theirs.

    I remember Nixon's price controls preceded the inflationary spiral of the Carter years. When govt tries to manipulate the economy, it seems to create a backlog of the normal economic foreces, resulting a dramatic changes once the govt intervention ceases.
    I fear that the longer the Fed invetvenes with its money printing, the more extreme the result of this fed manipulation will be. .
