Sure, maybe the stock market will go to 20,000....30,000...the S&P to 2000...3000. But maybe a loaf of bread will be $20. Gasoline at $20 a gallon, etc.

I think in the German Weimar Republic of the 20's, the equivalent of 10 million dollars went to the value of about 15 cents in about 2 (?) years because of the Germany government printing money. Look at the vast amount of US dollars that are being printed and debt 17 trillion..going up every year.

Besides, if you are fussing about S&P and the Dow Jones, you are not, by definition someone that the BO administration is out to protect. Very likely you are of the class scheduled for extinction in a socialist one class (impoverished class) of the future.

There's a lot about the finance I probably don't know enough about. But I did read that there's a lot of deflationary pressure in the economy that is being offset by the inflationary pressure of printing money.

Romney's plan for the economy was just to improve the economy with free market principals in an environment of greatly lessened government regulation....to shrink the federal government, etc. So much for that.

If the fed keeps pumping money I'm sure it will inch up a little more. But I don't see any solid backing to this market. Market is about 30% too high IMO. Still money to be made if you play it right.

As long as the Fed is pumping the markets, it will continue to go up.

You do know the Fed is seriously considering ending QE next year, right?

A roaring artificially inflated stock market is all hobozo has left of a legacy. He ain't gonna let that down, and I'm sure he's pocketing millions.

If you've been sitting on the sidelines and decide to get in now you're an idiot. The markets up like a hundred and thirty five percent off its low and everyone knows QE is the only thing propping this market up. And that is precisely why I'm dollar cost averaging all my clients in the market right now.

Keep printing that money to pay the bills...good plan...

Obama said that Bush was "unpatriotic" for raising the debt with the Iraq war...said it was irresponsible and equated to thievery... Funny how 5 years can pass and redefine what he feels is patriotism.

Oct 2012 Bernacke said he saw interest rates remaining low for the next few years.... CYA, (aka til the end of the mooslum presidency). Yellen just as much confirmed she would maintain that policy.
