2014?

Can we just finish 2013 first?

These guys don't have any more clue than you or me, anyway.

Stay thirsty my friends.

And be happy living in the moment.

Don't you love the way these commie rags tell us how wonderful everything is ?
"the economy actually getting better "!
Where ?
When ?
How ?
"Growth" is STAGNANT - 1.4% is growth ? LOL
Unemployment is really NOT 7.3 % as this rag proclaims, it's more like 12%
HOWEVER even 7.3% is SHEET. It's BAD , not good.
A stable , growing economy NEEDS 4-5% unemployment !!! Anyone care to challenge me on that ?
Not 6 years of 7.6-8 % !!  LOL @ U
Are you people kidding me ?
Jobs ?
Yes, if you want Christmas jobs , minimum age salary
No, if you want a real job, acareer
Gas pricing ?
LOL , they crow about it dropping a few pennies to what , $3.40 ?
DAY ONE OF OBUMA REIGN GAS = $1.89
$1.89
$1.89
How "Helpful" would it be to save $1.50 per gallon ?
You think it would drive the economy a tad ?
The housing market = STILL down 35% fro it's high
What part is "good" about the economy ?
Do tell --
In conclusion----
There is NO recovery , there are no jobs, Obuma care will kill the rest of the crappy economy, 6 years of lies , deceit and a pseudo depression and Papa Doc is a fake , fraud , a liar and an America hater !

'... strong labor market and economic growth data could make the Federal Reserve push forward a timetable to wind down its asset purchases program."  IF the economy had ANY strength at all, it could roll on it's own.   However, we would not have a "strong labor market and economic growth data" if it were not for QE 1...1,000 dumping counterfeit money into the market.

Prepping for the year: yeah, a little profit taking for this month will make for a very merry Christmas for all of my clients as well as myself. But if you do, keep your core investments (blue chips) through the 1st quarter. We'll have should have a good rally in the beginning of the new year (if Obama doesn't mess it up).

They forget the 15th and most important investing idea for 2014:


15.) Don't

Two things to ponder this morning... Third Quarter GDP adjusted upward. It was initially presented LOW strictly to offset the QE tapering. Jobless claims fall because job creation is nothing and job blockades are now self-inflicted mortal wounds to business platforms. The manipulation machine is broken.

And the beat goes on down here....Scumbags in complete control once again and following the same old mo they have followed all week.....Lower opening, a sucker's rally at some point and then the selling resumes; that happened at 1040 hrs this morning when they called to accelerate and down the crapper we go.....Just play it safe, maybe this afternoon we can pull something off, we did yesterday and had a little rally before the close...We sill see....The markets this week starting to look like the economy sadly....More later.

"inflation hasn't flared up yet"? who are these people trying to fool? do your research and watch videos you will see that this is all smoke and mirrors and the markets slow gains are because they are following with the trend of inflation. this article is primarily all contributed by individuals who have some ties to the stock market as their source of income. do you really think these people have your best interest in mind? wake up America and start doing your own research and trekking your own path. Stop being sheep and making these individuals loads of money while we continue to struggle. I will stick to my indexed growth investments where I know I will NEVER lose money.

Sell NOW and hold cash until after the big correction coming.

Despite obo's best efforts to destroy business in this country, the economy is finally improving. That means bad news for QEs and bad news for stocks.

All good ideas that deserve consideration.

However, we all know the forum morons, AKA the dumbest people on the planet, will continue to whine, complain, and display their stupidity about every topic on earth as they get poorer and poorer. Most of them are mental cases, and I expect a few of them will be committed to asylums during 2014. 

Meanwhile, I'll continue to get richer and richer which is my God given right as a rich God Fearin' Republican. Yes 2014 will be a marvelous year for me. Now where did I place that Mercedes Benz brochure on the C63 AMG 507 Edition?

Yuk yuk!
