Market recap: Stocks posted modest gains on the final day of a record smashing quarter, as the S&P ended above its all-time closing high and the Dow's 11% gain was its best Q1 since 1998. Stocks stumbled briefly when the Chicago PMI fell short, but bargain hunters quickly swooped in. But in a warning sign, defensive shares such as utilities and healthcare led the pack, as they have for much of the rally.

    Remember what happened in 1929? Market hit new highs and we had the Great Depression. This is a sign. I recommend buying gold, canned soup, bottles of water to stay hydrated when you fight the liberals, and, of course, guns and plenty of ammo. I wouldn't
    T keep money in the banks, as well. Invest in a good mattress.
