The last time the DOW was this high, the feds were not propping it up with printed money and banks were not receiving $85 Billion per year in "stimulus".

Sorry Crappie but you've been celebrating too much and too long.

That's $85 Billion PER MONTH

That is ALL that is holding up the market and I posted about the very thing a month ago.

Every single one of them except the very first one show the market would be falt on it's back. Had Bush pushed the Fed to do this he would have been impeached on the sopt.

I say we are headed for a large correction. The numbers just don't add up.

We are headed for a HUGE correction. The stock market is massively over inflated. Once the herd starts to panic its going to be a stampede that even the FED wont be able to turn.

I hope anyone who is heavily invested has done their research and has mechanisms in place to take advantage of the swing.
