What’s easier to predict, market trends or the weather? Like the weather, we’re at the mercy of forces we don’t fully comprehend and that leaves us with making assessments on how to act on relatively current conditions. You may plant a seed in the Fall hoping for the right balance of sun and rain in the Spring, but the yield is less than certain.

Equities do appear to have shown some staying power with some rather bad news recently – some of it, like the Moody’s downgrade, not previously discounted – and has actually gained. Perhaps the market is trying to say something.

that’s why the broad trendlines (low-end) start at 50 days…

Please, no phone calls tomorrow, complaining of a brutal hangover and bacon in your bed.

Better to look where we are than to guess where we’re going.
