Probably for the market, but not for me trading in it, so far. YMMV

I think there's a couple of problems:
1) data that is easy to visualize and compare (price of S&P etc) gets much more attention than things that are hard to visualize compare.

2) people like telling stories after things happen as if they are telling them before they happen.

Because of that we think that the market is a universal measure of a series of things that lead it there and we can understand it.

I think its not and we can't.

For the first 10 days, yes. For the month as a whole, not really close.

Janet Yellen's actions are dismantling our economy. Makes me wish I didn't vote for her.
