Default Stock Market Crash 2012 Predictions and Discussion

The stock market hasn't gone anywhere fast this year but many have called this an unexpected mini-rally that many expected past Christmas.

This article mentions a "caveat emperor" and in a way sounds the alarm that this rally may be false and shortlived based on positive labor, housing and ear nings reports. I'd pose the question I did last year which is what's changed? The economy isn't improving and Europe still threatens the fragile world economy. There has also been a lot of negative data too, I'm in the group that feels these positive stats are manipulated as stats can be made to show whatever you like in the right hands.

This article also seems like a bit of a warning which is concerning to see in the mainstream. It basically implies that a rally can't be sustained unless the average reluctant person gets back into the market because of the much lighter trading volume.

I found this article funny, most of the smart people are staying out regardless of the market movements. The fact that we see huge bear and rally predictions means it remains to be seen.

My position is that we're in a bear market reflective of the poor world economy and I'm sticking to metals until the world economy has either crashed or recovered.
