Also for those people fighting the market uptrend, which is most of the professionals, "it is the stimulus stupid". As I have said again and again the huge stimluls put in by the Bush administration has been cyclcling through the system for almost 8 months and it is leakking steadily into the stock market. The stimulus has a much bigger and faster effect on the stock market than on the economy. The money has to go somewhere and some of it is going into equity investment. Some of a stimulus that large is a lot of money. Later on, 4 to 8 months from now the Obama stimulus is going to have its effect and we get a surge from that too. It is all artificial and will eventually go bad, very bad, when they initiate their huge tax increases on a tiny minority group and simultaneously try to shrink the Fed balance sheet. Better get your skates on for that one.
