The stock market has basically lost 3 of the last 4 weeks. The sugar high from 85 billion a month has been tapered to 75 billion and the market is actually reacting now to bad economic news, i would think 2014 will be a bit different than 2013.

Mr. Theagoybho is almost always right and I agree with him. We know that a large correction is coming right at all of us, liberal or conservative. Just know that the unemployments payments have now stopped and about time. And people whom had to buy some new car have already done it. Kiss that goodby. And with the continuing decline in the FED payout at $75 billion each month will continue to taper off. Count on a 2014 as a poor one.

The stock market has been artificially inflated for quite awhile now with the QE1(Quantitative Easing or Printing money out of thin air), QE2 and now QE3. Hyper-Inflation is on the way. There is really no other way around it.

We just had year end fund distributions and now people are rebalancing. My funds went down today by about the same amount as my distributions. Go figure. Happens every year. Too many novices reporting on the market these days. Nothing to see here, move along.
