We were down 1.3% on January 10th and came back up to records.

We need a few days of drops like this to even think of the word “correction”.

I have a bad feeling about this market, and I am someone invested in it.

When people start talking like the market will automatically make gain this year, I start to worry, and I am hearing that more and more.

We are in No Man’s Land right now. The Fed is trying it’s damndest to keep people in the dollar and out of gold. Hence the market levitates, even though it should correct it won’t. Not at least till there’s a significant enough of a shock that even the Fed can’t hold back that stampede.
