This is late coming and tho there's been a few posts related to the New Bull Market no one seems to have trashed the 'Triple Top' theory that never happened. Perhaps like me you were sucked into believing the end-of-the-world was at hand â not so. The Major Buy was way back in March 2009 , and regardless of the talk back then of a triple top to come, more than 7,700 points of profit would have to accumulate before the DJIA reached that triple top point, and for the S&P 500 , about 909 points or in terms of the profit trading one ES contract - a mere $45,500 for a straight Buy&Hold until the week of April 26 2013 when the S&P finally broke free of that triple top fear that the DJIA had already broken some six weeks earlier. Between 1999 and 2009 a massive market correction occurred that beginning in 2009 started the next leg up of the New Bull Market. If you haven't got that yet get it now because when people talk about the Dow going into the 20,000s and the S&P breaking 2,100 , 2,500 , 2,700 , they're right. Oh and the 'economy', 'employment' and 'QE' yada yada yada Slowly rising interest rates may do some good; at some point the potential profits to be obtained from lending will cause banks' greed to overcome their past miserly behaviour toward all those loan applicants they'd previously rejected. This change should move lending from an easing to a gush of 'please, take the money' which in turn will boost the economy and employment which will begin to catch up with what the markets have been doing for the past FIVE years.
