It would seem no amount of bad news can keep the market down. If it ain't the fed propping up the market its something else. Just buy any dip in the indexes and hold on. It may go against you but it always comes back. What frustrates most traders is getting stopped out and not having enough nerve to re enter, just to watch the market climb up and over you entry point. I have learned over the years aside from the tech bubble, to just hang on and average down, it always pays off.
