    There is a lot of cash buying out there - not necessarily by individuals.

  • Housing Starts jumps 22.7% to 1.09M [View news story]
    A lot of buyers are US investment firms setting up rental properties. Usually inflation is a landlord's friend - and with a lack of it there will be little pressure for rental rates to rise. kind of curious how this will pan out.
    Oh, and most of the buyers (a majority!?) are not from China.

    Time of the year. Who wants to buy a house when the Christmas shopping hasn't even started.

    You should live where I do - on Thursdays all the gas stations raise prices as much as $0.30 per gallon, just in time for the weekend. Prices retreat again on Mondays.

    If there were not enough non-believers, stocks would be too expensive. We need them to force dips (buying opportunities).

    Many jobs added to manufacturing. More than service jobs. Read the report before making a comment.

  • 4 Costly Investment Themes [View article]
    I've been investing since the early 80's - an I'm a lazy investor. I buy, but rarely ever sell, staying in 90%. I have just enough to retire, but that is another 5+ years away. On the nightly national news, a couple was showcased who now have to work into their 70's. They sold at the low point and never jumped back in.

    Just because the sheeple panic when talk of the end of QE is mentioned doesn't mean that QE had a real impact, it only means investors think it did.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Do Sidelined Investors Face Upside Risk? [View article]
    "This was a week of surprising economic strength. It was encouraging that both stocks and bonds interpreted this as good news."

    Very refreshing. Are we done worrying what the FED will do or not do? The FED will move only after they deem the economy can take care of itself.
