You have a good question. Who knows what Obama will do, even Big Media is wondering.

Looking at the chart of the DJI across the last 100 years suggests the possibility of a side ways drift, 1965-1983, years of high taxation and expansive government.

And then consider we are now approaching the mean value. Even using a 40 year chart of the DJIA an interpretation of continued sideways movement can be made.

Who knows, an Ersnt and Young Finacial Planner suggested I just ride it out with a 50/50 portfolio allocation, (that and a dollar might buy a cup of coffee).

Now where is my crystal ball?
