Correction Imminent?

The stock market has been going straight up lately. Does anybody think a correction is imminent, and when a good entry point would be? Thanks.

Yep, equities look exactly like the Venezuelan beaver cheese futures market right before it crashed. Be afraid, very afraid.

I'd suggest the best entry point is at the bottom - but I don't think we're there just yet...

No, no, no. It must continue! I'm actually starting to feel somewhat wealthy (at least by my modest standards).

Good entry point? March 2009 with the Dow around 6500. More current times? Who the heck knows.

Well, I must admit you showed quite a bit of restraint this time!

Thanks for waiting to party until well after the first week of the year.

Did you all notice that the peak of the market corresponded EXACTLY to the time W2R posted her Wheee....!!!! comment. Down almost 80 points since that very instant. I stand in awe of W2R's power to dominate the markets...
