Can we just finish 2013 first?

Stay thirsty my friends.

And be happy living in the moment.

'... 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).

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!

Barry, did you have any luck finding that secret Santa that hands out the $100 bills at

the Goodwill yet?Maybe he`s afraid to go to the one in Harlem.Go to a better area if the

homeless center will transport you there.

Knicks.The coach will get fired.A big trade will happen.The Knicks won`t win with a ball hog

like Melo.Try for the draft lottery.They`re in the tank like you are.

If I were to make a buy today, I'd try to get JCP under $9/share and hold.

How about buying some Bitcoin?  Many people are predicting huge increases this year.  It has been following an S-Curve adoption rate for new technologies and it is still early in the curve, even though it might be hard to believe at the price it is.  This year the price went from about $10 to around $900 right now.  Some people are predicting the same rate of growth.  Sure it is extremely high-risk but the rewards are worth looking into anyways.  There is new of Wall Street getting involved as well and millions are being thrown into Venture Capital to create new uses for Bitcoin as well.

Michael Jordan type stock picks.My politics are spot on.So are my basketball expertise.

1) Take what's left in your old regular accounts OUT and live on them after the crash wipes out your online game tokens. 
2) Use those old actual dollars to get a life that includes tangible effort and labor or enterprise.
3) Destroy all remaining Kool Aid supplies in your life. Admit addiction.
4) Get ready to have your azz handed to you by your victims.
5) Run.
