    Current options prices on SPY....have a 55% probability of
    at least one 7+% correction this year. History says 45 out of the last 50 years have experienced at least one 7+% correction in a calendar year.

    "40% of households under 35 years of age have student debt'

    Or you could say 60% of households under 35 have no student debt...or
    12 million households between the ages of 25-34 with no student debt

    4 million households between the ages of 25-34 make over $100,000 a year...

    "According to RealtyTrac, 35% of all homeowers still have "effective negative equity" in their homes."

    How can that be when a 1/3 of the homeowners don't even have a mortgage?...So you are saying over Half of the people with a mortgage are underwater?

    CoreLogic Aoril 3 2015...

    "according to CoreLogic's data, about one in 10 mortgaged homes were underwater."

    6.5 million Households between the ages of 35-44 make over $100,000 a year

    1.5 million Households between the ages of 35-44 make over $200,000 a year...

    The # of employed 35-44 age group hit a 22 year low in August 2011...and have
    been steadily growing ever since....the feeder group of employed 25-34 years olds
    are rapidly growing...Before someone mentions Student loans...

    % of Households ages 35-44 with student debt....26%....even less for the upper income households 35-44

    "A small share of borrowers carry exceptionally high
    balances, but most carry relatively low levels of debt. As
    of 2010, about 25 percent of borrowers owed less than
    $6,200 and three quarters owed less than $30,000. At
    the high end, 5 percent of borrowers owed $92,800 or
    more, likely either parents financing multiple educations
    or professional students in law, medicine, or business
    borrowing under the PLUS program."
