    Geez, why didn't someone tell me the stock market was an economic indicator. I had no idea anyone was interested in that! I heard nothing about it throughout the campaigns.

    Let's see; maybe we coulda' used this:

    It's even better if you can find one of the DJ since it's inception - recognizing that the stocks are not one & the same - guess when you start doing bad as a company no one wants you around anymore. It's sorta like the constitution, change it to suit your needs. BUT, it is a good indicator of where the country is going & where it has been including all the bubbles. & is the only place to be with a percentage of your portfolio to combat inflation which is ever present, it's just the degree that changes .

    Ken Fisher is a columnist on Forbes - follow his recommendation for a while & see if you think he is knowledgeable - we looked at one time of placing a portion of our portfolio under his under his management, when the analysis was done the boss said I needed to keep doing that job . When those folks manage your money they have to make 2% more to be even with us amateurs, that's why I am my own broker . The internet is wonderful. As a DIY, I think it makes me more conscious of what is going on in the country & the world. As those events can affect returns!!
