The indices finished the week higher but not by that much. We need to keep in mind that once stocks and indices start setting new highs all they have to do is move one more penny to have another new high. This confuses the issue as we hear their setting new highs stop and think about it if it's only by a few pennies it doesn't mean squat. This is what happens when you get into an credibly overvalued market such as this one. Those of us that are holding are lucky if we see very much of the gain no matter how long we hold it. Remember the higher we climb the further we can fall and that's what I think about the current market's. They are working very hard to build the point of falling very far and it really won't make much difference who wins the White House. I believe there is a lot of negative news out there that were not getting such as more part-time jobs in full-time jobs that eventually are going to come back to haunt us. The best bet might be to take profits on the big stocks and find some small stocks to move to. If we want to get into this market we have to look for bargains in the small caps and special situations in the low-priced arena. Choose wisely! (continue)
