retail chain-store sales for the year ending in March were up a blowout 10 percent

Are those numbers seasonally-adjusted? Are we looking at people spending their income tax refunds or broader demand?

You’re right the retail investor is not in,,,I, myself still have my entire 401k in cash....I got out at 13,800 and I’m conservative with that 50 percent savings I got from not staying in.

But institutional investors are buying and eventually the retail will get in, driving the market higher.

"...numbers seasonally-adjusted?"

That's not hard to find.  I'd be willing to look into it with you if it would help your understanding.  In fact, I'd enjoy checking this out with you but you really need to tell me where you're coming from.  You must have noticed on this thread that most people have made their final conclusions long before they ever begin checking the facts. ;-)

Simply put I just want to be able to understand the data, what it is and how it should be interpreted. The reason I ask is that much of the data doesn’t seem to add up...in the BLS report, hourly wages had gone down, but somehow spending is up. It didn’t make sense to me unless you figure in income-tax refunds which would be seasonal.

Ah. So if you're throwing away all your worthless Federal Reserve Notes, please let me know and I'll come over and haul away your trash for you.

Not worthless yet, but possibly so if we default.

Do you have a reading comprehension problem?
