Unedited Comments from Readers

Thanks for giving us a balanced perspective and a safe approach to stocks and investing in general. I have come to the conclusion that bear markets are the result  previous bull markets (excesses)and bull markets themselves to be nothing else but the result of giant promotions ,public relations, and criminal manipulation of hard data. We must remember two things:First , Investing  is a long term process that enriches someone slowly, and second , capital gains is not and has never been an investors main objective, rather it is a dealers objective.   Take good care of yourself.

I cannot believe how accurate your letter is in calling the stock market. .. while all the media people are extreme in some direction, you are calling it the way it is.... your track record is astounding over the years. I know since I have been a reader now for 12 years.

I particularly enjoy your graphic Indexes and Indicators.  Would it be possible (I know it would be very worthwhile for the readers!) to explain WHY you are projecting certain Pivot Dates and what they are projecting?   Thanks again for an excellent web page.   RV

Love your weekly pub, and have been reading for a long time. It's amazing how accurate you've been. Anyway, I'm stumped. Market sideways action continuing, negative market indicators (VIX, put/call, mcclellans, bullish sentiment), bouncing from 50 MVA resistance and 9690. When does it end?
