Over Christmas I visted with a relative who helps manage large portforlios for a financial group. He thinks the US market will probably be flat for the year. For emerging markets he thought that China is oversold and overpriced but that India has promise of higher returns. He has hedged his personal portfolio some commodities and thinks there is still a lot of credit risk in the economy. So there's an opinion of someone who watches things quite closely and someone I trust, FWIW.

Personally, I'm a little more interested in interest rates and bond fund prices this year more than equity trends. I'm thinking that there is only one direction for rates to go and that they will indeed go that way as the economy consolidates.

My guess is the market will have some downturns over 2010 but mostly remain where it is.

However, I fear Iran, Housing prices, things we don't know about banks, crazy politicians, unemployment, tsumamis, earthquakes, and terrorists.

Happy New Year

S&P500 will hit 1300 in 2010. I don't have a clue what it will end at, or the low for the year.

I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you've probably misunderstood what I've said Alan Greenspan
