    The analysts were saying the market was being "artifically propped up". Not a surprise.

    For every winner, there is a loser too. It's obvious you guys are on the wrong side of the equation.

    I think the only reason the stocks have been going up is because the fed is dumping all the money at almost no interest on the market to get banks to loan money to consumers and business but they are buying stocks with it instead because they can get a better return

    The Fed has been pumping 86 BILLION a month into the markets to keep them propped up. Now the mere mention of possibly curtailing QE the market tanks. Just goes to show you that the health of our economy isn't a reflection of wall street.

    The economy has been buoyed by what is termed "credit expansion", and it comes from the Fed, its QE policy and continual purchase of government bonds.

    Economists, especially those who subscribe to the Austrian School of Economics, are well aware of what's happening. Interest rates are on an upward trend, and it's unlikely that they'll drop, since the upward movement more accurately reflects the real cost of money.

    Best, Dennis

    A temporary pop in home sales is due to the fear of interest rates going up.

    Money is leaving Dow stocks and going to bonds.

    A tremendous buying opportunity in precious metals is at hand. The soup has been loaded with water, the folks will catch on in the near future.

    If you can change your 401K to ultra conservative now is the time.
