    The number employed between the ages of 25-34 is now
    32.734 million.. the largest for this age group since May 1992.
    The 3 year growth rate for this category is the fastest it has been in over 26 years. The importance of these events is that this category is a direct feeder into the all important 35-44 category. The 35-44 category topped out in November 1999 and didn't reach a final bottom until August 2011.

    Great Joe Friday dialogue...(movie version)

    "Pep Streebeck: Are you crazy? Silvia Wiss wanted you!
    Friday: Now let me tell you something, Streebeck. There are two things that clearly differentiate the human species from animals. One, we use cutlery. Two, we're capable of controlling our sexual urges. Now, you might be an exception, but don't drag me down into your private Hell.
    Pep Streebeck: You've got a lot of repressed feelings, don't you, Friday? Must be what keeps your hair up."

  • Time To Stop Buying The Dips [View article]
    "stalled-out GDP growth".....a large part of this phenomenon is due to the rare event of a 50% drop in gas prices...the Gasoline and other energy goods consumption (a part of GDP)dropped 78 billion from 4th qtr 2014 to 1st quarter 2015..this is the equivalent of removing 1.8% (SAAR) Nominal Gdp growth....this event is not a negative for the economy but in past history has tended to extend the economic recovery.

    A cyclical low in the 4 week jobless claims in the last cycle came 20 months before the market topped. Since a 7+% correction intrayear has come in 45 of the last 50 years..a correction should always be expected..if one happens this year ( which it should)..then it should be bought...

    From the 4 week jobless claims bottom on April 15 2000...the S&P 500 rallied another 12.1%... the monthly closing high for S&P 500 was made on August 31,2000...which was the measure i was using...

    The 2000 market was a completely different animal...too

    Of the 10 proprietary indicators I use to call a market top...8 were negative back then..today I only have one that is negative.

    "The 4-week moving average was 279,500, a decrease
    of 4,250 from the previous week's unrevised average of 283,750. This is the lowest level for this average since
    May 6, 2000 when it was 279,250."

    The significance of the new cyclical low of the 4 week moving average means the April 24,2015 high for the S&P 500 was not the top....
