How much of the move into equities is from people returning to stocks after selling at the end of 2012 to lock in their capital gains at last year's rate?

That and re-investment of the lower-taxed dividend payouts from last month.

I know that’s why I sold some late last year. I would imagine the gov’t tax revenues will be up for the year from these sales. I’m thinking March is going to be a bad news month, which could be a good time to re-invest. jmo...

There was a $220b jump in deposit accounts in December - the largest ever in history. Seeing a $22b move into equities is not all that surprising, considering.

How they are attributing the total to retail investors is comical. The Fed is pumping this bubble, and unfortunately, they are pumping up the bond and equity bubbles simultaneously. They are in a vicious circle, at this point, and built a negative feedback loop where the Fed policy is eating up any aggregate demand. We will be sub 1% (truly negative) in GDP growth for last quarter. People are out of the markets and stuffing cash away - that is the real story, regardless of how they want to sell it.
