    4% is the new 10%. That's about all the reversion we're going to get this year.

  • Are We Back To Bad News Is Good News?  [View article]

    Currently, it seems to me that everything is being filtered through the lens of "How will the FED react to this?", in which case, bad news indeed becomes good news.

    @ s. aniston

    I wonder whether a hypothetical 60 or 70 point drop would cause panic or be viewed as yet another micro-dip to buy. There's this thing called "The FED Put" that seems to prevent any downside follow-through.

    At the end of the day, the market only seems to care about the FED.

    As long as the FED doesn't deviate from the script it has laid out (winding up QE in October, begin the gradual raising of rates in the summer of 2015), the market should continue on its complacently merry way.

    You're cutting your own throat with this "saving and living below your means" nonsense.
    All your buddies with their flashy toys are going to be feeding at the govenment trough in retirement: you, on the other hand, are going to "means-tested" out of these goodies due to your misguided self-reliance.

    Spend it all!! Let the gubmint take care of you!!

    A "flat" market is the new "down" market. A little rotation going on under the surface with the averages holding steady.

    "Smoke and Mirrors" is working out pretty good so far.

    Absolutely correct, 0929, it will take an act of God to derail this market.

    And it appears that God is bullish and intent on sending us a little manna from heaven.

    As they say, "Silence is Golden".

    It's going to be a long summer for the bears as the S&P silently pushes towards 2000.

  • The Equity Cyclical BEAR Market Of 2014  [View article]
    We're lucky to get a 5-7% correction in the S&P these days.....keeping buyers at bay long enough for the averages to move down 20% would be downright miraculous.

  • The Market Feels Ready To Crack  [View article]
    Your points are all valid. As I read in another article today, "The market is again trading with an air of invincibility."

    What do you think is going to trigger a market sell-off? And with so many investors like yourself wanting to buy at a lower entry point, will the sell-off be able to gain some traction or is a 5-7% dip about the best we can hope for?
