The market volatility hasn't come to an end despite assurances that the worst is over and the market might be on the rise for an indefinite time or at least until the Fed hikes the rates. Some "experts" are certain that it won't be long before there is a super crash. http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article52619.html After an incessant flow of bad economic news from both the U.S. and abroad, investors decided that "bad news is good news" and they should bid up stock prices . . . Markets are likely correct that the Fed isn't going to raise rates by year end. My bet is that they won't raise them as long as President Obama is in office. But that doesn't mean those same markets are reaching the right conclusion in bidding up stock prices. A weak global economy that is on the verge of recession is bad for stocks . . . there's no doubt much of last week's strong gains in stocks was due to short covering.
