Been hearing this for a year yet she doesnt go down.

Makes me think that the algos run the store now..and to break them would take a huge concerted move down, but if they were "busted out" then the market might collapse..serious numbers.

Just wait until the real money moves in. We are about to experience a huge rally soon.

I have always agreed that this is the end game, however, i expect all commodities to outrun the equities, so "yay, my stocks are up 100%",,,,,,"oh wait, everything i need to buy with the proceeds has more than doubled in cost"

If stocks and other investment vehicles that the baby boomer retirement schemes are infested in/dependent upon, don't double in the next couple years, the whole system goes bust anyways

sell my WMT stock for 600 per share, and go buy my 90$ a gallon gasoline

The retail investor has always been behind the curve in investing.. Always has been.. Always will.   Because they generally don't know what they're doing.

If you want to look at a contrarian view (against the retail investory) , just take a look at mutual fund inflow-outflow numbers.    Retail investors have been pulling money out of funds in droves since the market bottom... and what has the market been doing for the last couple of years.

When the retail investor starts pounding money in again... there's you're warning sign of a frothy market.

boomers are very conservative, they've taken their money out of the market in droves
