Bull Market? Bear Market? the Jury's out....however


Search Engine Submission - AddMe


In the past week, there has been a dizzying array of "experts" on CNBC calling this the start of a bull market, calling it a "Bear bounce" in a downward trend and everything in between.


It only goes to show that "no one" can time the market, and that includes the so called experts.


However, being somewhat of a pragmatist, IE: 37% gains in two months, wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka etc, Pirates off the coast of Africa, a Flu Pandemic maybe only one or two mutations away (fall 2009) coupled with some old market staples such as "sell in May and go away", I have taken some off the table, and shored up the rest (I hope).


After all, I don't have to actually experience a house fire, to buy some basic insurance. I just hope everything doesn't burn. (sorry, pessimistic this week and nervous about my portfolio).


Then again, 35+% gains ain't bad for two years, let alone two months.


What do you think?
