With all the Doom and Gloom on CNBC and all the rest - plus the "brainwashing of the masses" by the general local media to the "sad state of the American Economy" I think it will take a LOT of evidence, and time, to convince otherwise. I would hope it would be second half of 2009 but I voted first half of 2010.

2009 2nd half, but that's just a WAG.

Recovery? We don't need no F***ing recovery.

Seriously, 11,659.90, 2,452.52, and 1,298.19 are good enuf for me. I said it a year ago and I'll say it again, anything over 11,000 is froth on the latte. I said that because my perspective is circa 1972, and pity anyone who got in at 10,500 or, god forbid, higher. Again, I am unable to vote.

For all the reasons OAG mentioned, it has probably already begun, unfortunately. Like CuppaJoe I'm sad to see it come. My investing depends on the market just bouncing around or decreasing slightly for optimum performance, and when the recognition of the recovery occurs, I won't make quite as much. Ah well, at least the happy talk will be nice.

Looks like 70% believe it is happening now or will by 2009.

Yippee!

I think that was until everyone got the memo that the beatings will continue until morale improves!

Which is in 2011, according to the poll, at this posting.

Good. I voted for next year, but will hold my cash and wait to buy then. Have I-bonds, will wait.

Events lead attitudes, not the other way around. Today's optimism may be no better informed than last months pessimism.

Very interesting, but I'm not quite sure what to make of it... my guess is that you tried to give 'them' a little perm with the curling iron which she enjoyed immensely. I guess this is the closest emoticon I can come up with.

Be careful down there!
