    I read articles starting about 3 am. My favorite “Gurus”/Analysts are Colin Twiggs, Sam Collins, and Alan Gula. This article is especially good Alan- I also smell a top (I’m loading up on Silver) Keep up the good work!!!

    Articles like this are nothing more than pure speculation. Analogies to football and heart rhythms? Please, try using economic fundamentals instead of past volatility to make predictions. Wall street traders know about as much about where the market is headed as my dog. Invest in the S&P 500 and quit worrying.

    Great article, once again. On the other hand, while the reversals were quite exceptional, they did not mean much if you observed that the Green Bay Packers appear to have lost on purpose. It was hard to look at the last 6 minutes of the game and believe that all the mistakes were not done on purpose. And from the onset of the game, there was the feeling of sabotage in the air. An uncalled temper tantrum from 76, offense, that gave a 15 yard penalty. Two missed attempts at scoring a touchdown 3 inches from the line; all this in the first 5 minutes of the game??? But if football can be rigged, so can the markets.
    And as the Clinton years have demonstrated, stupidity can be resilient indeed when it comes to markets. Remember the number of world financial catastrophes between 1997 and 2000, and yet the internet bubble went all the way.
    Obviously, the main ambition of the current President is to break all of his predecessor’s records, so obviously, the current bubble is backed by mucho political will and clout.
    Currently, I am searching at small drops of something that could be decisive in a crash setting.
    You’ve got:
    Switzerland taking the cap of its currency, which could be the trigger of multi-currency breakdowns;
    You’ve got a potential 1,6 trillion junk bond disaster in the shale plays…
    On the other hand:
    There appears to be a worldwide conspiracy to redirect all available cash towards the US as some kind of last resort to salvage any ones investment. This could support the mother of all bubbles indeed, even if all honest observers agree that this market only has speculation to offer no matter where you go in.
    I don’t like bubbles; I guess this is what makes them much more appealing to almost every other people…

    From my observations over the years, bad events start with Technology and filter into the NYSE. Tech companies are often risky. They are the first to decline. And it drags everything else with it.
    I am into consumer staples. In a downturn, they are the first to come back. True, we are an aging population and have to be cautious. But I still believe in the American Dream. The stock market is the best place to be. Also, I am getting rich from tobacco stocks.
