  1. Simple question - could we have a second nasty down year and end up with a 70+% peak to bottom bear market?

    simple answer without using any TA is YES.
  3. tsk tsk..can't talk about market direction or make predictions in trading forum. move to chit chat.
  4. Its very possible. We're in a bear market and market looks sickly. Gotta be stupid to be long.

    The simple answer is "yes".

    If the only government intervention was via the Federal Funds rate, then I'd say "almost certainly".

    However we have governments in the US and elsewhere that are willing to attempt to spend the world out of the current mess, which could result in the S&P 500 remaining above 750.

  6. No. the bottom was made in November

    Not this year. We have the bottom at 600 nicely planed...
  8. If it isn't, and you're wrong for the umpteenth time, will you promise (again) to go away and then stay away?
  9. I'm gonna be on the roof again if it keeps falling like this

  10. Of course we could. We "could" also go up 100% by mid-spring.

    Is that really what you're trying to ask?
