Formerly a Registered Investment Advisor. Professional real estate appraiser, specializing in Commercial and Industrial real estate, holding the MAI designation. Retired from active appraisal practice in 2000. Formerly known as "johnthebear." You can view earlier comments under that name. My name was changed due to a compter problem, but outlook for the market is for an extended multi-year downturn for the US market. This recovery must take longer than all previous recessions except the depression due to world wide loss of capital and confidence.
