Question Well It Is Time To Again Test Investor Sentiment Around the World!

We have asked the question, " How do you feel about the Markets? " in our capacity of the LVS group.

But we have new tools now. Lets use them. We know that not everyone of our members will jump out and POST, as either they don't have confidence yet as they are new. Or they are Wiser than I! lol

Bluestoo has a saying he got from (I think his father I believe) and he will correct me if need be.... He says

"Better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you the fool, rather than opening it and proving the fact!"


Guess I will never learn .......
Well here you get to vote you feelings on several points.

So please vote and don't hesitate to post as well if you feel you want to. But lets see the vote!

I will admit and play the fool. C'mon, I believe to be a great investor you MUST put your opinion out there, right or wrong. This is the best way to learn!!! Pending refusal to learn and accept the truth "of course". Enough from Ghandi now.....

I believe the market is reaching either a PEAK or a PLATEAU before another Bull session. The law of threes leads me to believe the former and last Bear session will soon befall us before we head out of this recession.

Hey Sean,

Well said, Your PLATEAU to older investors is called a Consolidation! And yes that is where we are right now. You note we have been stuck on this $8,000 mark. Every day up one and the next day down 2, etc.

We, In my opinion will bell on a large bull run within the next week! It will be fueled with a lot of coming earnings reports that a poised to be good ones.

(Of course not all will be!)

I have been the lone for some time now but I do hope a few folks see that the sky is not about to fall and join the herd while there is still to be made!!

Sector bullish, overall bearish. Sub 7000 again would be ideal...

What Sector Miles!


Why tech of course! Haha to be honest I don't have a single tech play. So I guess you could call me the uberpessimist. if I had to pick a sector to be bullish aside from Tech I will say OIL.

Man this Has to keep on charging up, there are way to many of you grumpy ol' 's around these parts..... I live in the woods and there are fewer 's around here.

I have to watch-out that I don't get a big bite in the arsh' form BELOW! XD

Now I will make you 's a deal. You fellas (And Gal's, as the case may be) get more bullish until June 1st and I will let you have a bit of a dip in mid June!

But I need to make some by then.

I need some movement before the 15th so I can get Lattes .. He He!

The only thing I know is, "Tomorrow will be critical for the markets". lol

I think we're gonna start crashing back down by the first week in May and bottom in early June. ( I pulled these dates out me arse) I've peeled some profit layers away and kept my principal intact for the most part.

BUT, I am keeping my long positions, and have sell stops on my shorts that I would LIKE to inch up every evening, but it seems that this BEAR MARKET PENNANT will soon run completely out of steam. I hope I'm wrong...then again, I'd love another opportunity to pick up some more REITs and ADRs with divi's on the super-cheap. Either that, or we'll move sideways in choppy trading for some time, making a day-traders dream (and a newbie's nightmare).

So in summary, my forecast is for increasing chance of precipitous gut-wrenching drop with a continued likelyhood of sideways choppy sea-sickness.

In any event, I'm still scrambling to raise cash...hoarding every penny from my paychecks that I can. "What, milk? We don't need no stinking milk!"

And how's this for relative strength?!?

I was a cautious bear but I am convinced it is a bull market now. Poor GDP and we should be down or sideways in a good market. We and a rockin' day.

I am converted to the Bull side........ 9000 here we come
