Then it will be mentioned in the State of the Union speech:

"Why, our economy is so strong, the DOW has repeatedly topped 16,000 making it 2X the amount it was 5 years ago."

So far it looks like They ran everything up hard to a 10 AM high on “better than expected” Consumer Confidence numbers, and now everything is dribbling back down. I’d bet on a down day when it’s all said and done.

I think so too. Neil Cavuto was suggesting the other day we’re looking at a 10% correction, which means it should bottom out around 14,400.

I’ll join you on betting it will be slightly down, with a bigger drop next time.

Does anyone have advice on what to do with 401K’s? Are there funds you can move into that protect from a correction? There is a money market fund in my 401k, would it be safe to park the money there to ride out a correction?

Personally, I never received any benefits through work, so never had a 401.....but we got out of all our personal mutual funds years ago after taking a significant hit - from then on, we've belonged to the "cash is king" CD club.

You don't earn anything, but you don't lose either, except for the inflation which the government claims doesn't exist.

I sleep better at night with this simple strategy...

Many 401k options have precious metal markets, but I think I’m going to stay in and see what happens. I still think over the long term it’s the best investment, and if all hell breaks loose, we will all have bigger problems than what we lost in the stock market.

The Federal Reserve will call its member banks, and tell them to make it so.

Does Sleezy Preezy think people will really be so gullible as to believe that the stock market bubble means the economy is OK?

If he mentions the Dow, it will be in the context of “income inequality.”

A money market fund is essentially a “cash” option for your money, and it earns a tiny bit of interest in there. If you want to get out of your stock or bond funds, you could put it there. In fact, it may be the “default” place for money to go into when you sell any fund holdings.

It’s not 100% risk-free. See this: http://www.investopedia.com/articles/mutualfund/08/money-market-break-buck.asp

But a money market fund is not like stocks or bonds that regularly fluctuate in value. It is generally considered a “safe” place to park your money.

I've been watching it all day and its seems pretty much stuck in the low 15,900's. It peaked at 15,945 for the day at 10:00 am and has been stumbling around ever since about 40 pts lower.

When it started falling last week, I went in an bought some ETF's (bought some QQQ yesterday at the low) and was hoping it would return to the mid-16,000's in the next few weeks.

But you never know.;-)

Y'all best figure that out, right quick, because I assure you that 0bama and Reid know EXACTLY what to do with your 401k.

Actually, despite all Obama's efforts to screw up the economy and the country, the economy is still indicating a lot of underlying strength.

Were it not for Obamacare, many small businesses I talk to would hire.

There’s considerable resistance at the 15,928-30 level. The market keeps bumping up against it put can’t seem to push through.

companies are doing stock buybacks to prop up their values and eventually go private and away from regulators.

Caterpillar just announced a $10b stock buyback, but I think don’t think they plan to go private. Management probably just thinks their shares are undervalued.

I'm not a betting man, but I wouldn't be surprised if the market closed up around 15,945 or 950 at the last minute.

The trend is up and there are institutional investors who will want to be back in before the day ends just in case it opens up tomorrow.
