Loki; I am surprised to hear you have any money invested in the "stock market" which I assume means equity investments. May I inquire what % allocated to stocks and wether to indivdual stocks or funds??
Personally as some of you may recall I have been wrong about the direction of 10+year interest rates for about 14 months.Having admitted my error I am still of the opinion that interest rates are going to move up(twin defecits combined with excessive spending as a % of GDP reative to the rest of the world).With the year over year; inflation at 3.3%,PPI up from 144.8 to 150.8,CPI up from 184.3 to190.3 if present trends continue after considering taxes one would be losing wealth(not$) in the second year of a 5 year CD.
