Except for when Carter was President interest rates were 17% and stocks were flat.

My IRA made back up $6,392 in a little over 2 months. Just checked it yesterday.

It is just a matter of time.

Interest rates will be doing some serious harm soon enough. ENjoy it while you can.

We have chosen to keep the spigot open for money, so the stock market has gone up, All we have done is make the recovery if it ever comes less dramatic in the stock market as it reverberates everywhere else.

Companies are not growing, just as they did not grow during Carter, so the gains are coing for a bad reason. Cutbacks on the ability to grow and on research, it is a close duplicate except for Fed Policy, and Fed policy takes a while to do it's harm, but harm it will.
