The markets closed mostly lower last week, which is just a continuation of the down one week up next week this market getting used to. As I mentioned earlier the DOW 30 has yet to reach a new 52-week high this year, although the other major indices have reached one repeatedly. Although, the markets are very strong in every sell off seems to be met with the buying after just a short time. On the other hand, every rally seems to run in the selling is just a short time. What's an investor to do? It would appear that low interest rates are going to stay with us for some time to come, but everything we hear about our economy is that it's growing much slower than the feds would like. The real negative here is there basically telling us that unemployment is going to remain low for some time to come. I feel that this high unemployment is going to come back to bite us and when it does there is a possibility it could turn this slow-growing economy down. Only time will tell and I doubt that it's going to happen in the next few weeks. Do not by the metals yet. Continue to look to the smaller stocks for the better near-term bets! more
