Not Again!

Yesterday I likened this current market to the mythological Greek character, Sisyphus. That being how each day we roll stocks up a hill to new heights only to have it slide back down again.

Wednesday served up more of the same as shares broke above 1850 yet again in the morning. Then by the close it was right back down again.

My money continues to ride on 1900 coming first.

Now let me you turn your attention to a chronic problem for most investors. And gladly Kevin Matras has the cure in his latest strategy article:
