1800 or Bust!

No government issues for 3 months


No Taper for now


No serious economic problems around the globe


Bull market still in place with 1800 on the horizon.

At this stage stocks will likely consolidate for a little while at 1750 given the surge of late.

After that it should make it up to around 1800 by year's end in a melt up type scenario. Meaning slow and steady stocks will creep their way up to that mark. Stay on the sidelines at your own risk.

Investors marvel that it's "like a license to print money." "No benchmark stands a chance!" Why wait another day?
