Default Now's The Time to Get Back Into Stocks ...

I'm calling it ... buy stocks now when they're nice and cheap. The market is about to turn.

The Dow will bounce between 8-9K for awhile but six months from now the Dow will be over 10K or more.

Just want a record I can refer to in April so I can say I told you so ...

Six months? That would be middle of May. Why don't you buy some May calls on the DJX at 100? You could do pretty well if it pans out! Triple your investment.

What fundamental information leads you to believe we'll see an 18% increase in six months?

LOL....well if you can have a 30% decrease in that time frame why not an 18% increase?

yeah...I'm pessimistic. If you look at the DJIA trends over the last 30 years what you see is when there's a bad drop like this it takes time to come back around.

I don't think so. Stocks are still oversold.

In 2001-2002 the Dow dropped 30 percent from the peak when it bottomed. We're down 40 percent from the peak so I think all of the worst stuff is already priced in.

The only time the Dow dropped by another 30 percent on top of the 40 percent drop we have now was during the great depression. I know a lot of people think we're going to have a great depression but, we didn't have the government mechanisms in place that we have today.

I don't expect many people to agree with me but that's the time to buy anyway ... when everybody says "don't buy!"

The darkest hour is before the dawn and I think we're already past that.

Good.

When you see the dawn's early light, let us know.

Meanwhile, this bear is going back to his den....

Sheri, your last prediction from your crystal ball was back on 11/5 and now we are 10% LOWER than your last prediction (to get into the market).


Do you want us to short stocks after you make a prediction or what?

I was responding to another poster and that was in reference to the 30% drop over the last year. I don't think the market is going to see another big drop like what we've seen. I think it's going to stabilize in the mid-8000's.....but I don't see a big gain in the near future. It's going to be a long road back.

The market needs some optimism so belly up to the bar and throw some money around.
