    It doesn't pay to be a long term bear. Adjust your thinking.

    I guess your right since the rules favor mostly bulls.

    They can pump and prop up the markets anytime they please, with unlimited amounts of spending and bubble Ben bernanke creating more asset bubbles why would you want to be bearish on stocks.
  6. the most violent moves are down ...
  7. even with a black swan event on May 6th the market hit pre-May 6th level after just 5 days. this market is rigged to the upside when even black swans don't matter much.
