The S&P 500 will rise 11% next year to 1,379, according to the average of eleven strategists who participated in a Bloomberg survey. If their predictions are correct, it will mark a 53% return for the benchmark index since 2008, the best three-year stretch since the late 1990s.

    I don't remember ever seeing anything else than forecasts for 7-25% increases in the S&P 500 in the following year -- it is too risky for strategists to forecast either a decline or a huge increase. Do these forecasts really mean anything?

    One could argue that this stretch of time should be marked by an asterisk in the record books, because during this time the market was driven by artificial means, largely unilateral. On the other hand, who knows, maybe this is how it's going to be now. Even so, the asterisk should still be noted, marking the beginning of an era.

    So you are saying you expect gold and silver to track equities and move up in tandem?


    And where do you see the dollar going in the meantime? Honest question.

    it's still got a bit to go up too. They will go up in tandem and a sudden drop in the dollar will begin. It will start and eventually become out of control. It will go up longer than you think though.
