Market recap: Stocks recouped yesterday's losses, after December job growth roughly met estimates and non-manufacturing activity was surprisingly strong. The S&P finished its best week in 13 months and its highest close since Dec. 2007, which chart-watchers see as a precursor to a return to 1500 and above. Treasurys were little changed on the day, but were hit hard for the week.

    "The long-term forecast for a year ahead is improving, meaning the S&P 500 will be mostly higher next year than what where it's at today."

    Four years of Obama and four more, Geithner, Bernanke. Lots of bitching and moaning about socialism, the death of the USD, an energy policy that hates drilling etc.....what do we have?....a 5 year high in the S&P and we produce about 80% of our own energy.....imagine, we raise taxes on the 2% and the market goes vertical.....years of QE and there's no inflation....what passes for conventional wisdom no longer seems to apply.
