The week ended with a new all-time high for the Dow Jones Index.  Keep in mind I’m still a big bear on the stock market, but there’s no need to begin the depression any sooner than is necessary.  Still, I have to be honest and point out...
As expected, the Dow Jones Index saw two new all-time highs the past week (Thursday and Friday).  Just how much higher can the stock market go?  On a point basis I really don’t know, could be enough to surprise me.  But on a practical...
