"The bears are gone, extinct, vanished," writes John Hussman, with the only ones remaining being permabears or nutcases. "And yet, the historical evidence for major defensiveness has rarely been stronger." Capitulation is everywhere, he says, with even Alan Abelson telling investors to let profits run until stocks start to go the other way.

    I am always amazed when so many move to one side of the boat. It takes guts to go to the other side, however that is where the true gains are made. Next week will indicate a great deal with macro reports due. I bought the VIX last week as insurance and am taking gains throughout this week. I remember well 2007/2008. This reminds me a great deal of that time.
