Very surprised at the stock market

I got out of my retirement acct at Dow 11k. I thougth the market was already overvalued at 11k. When it went close to 13k recently I thought it would hit 15k and beyond this year. Why? The Fed was doing whatever it took for something to go right so it pumped money into the market with QE2. Now we are at a slump and I expect actions by the Fed to keep Wall street happy.

My predicton is to buy now because the Dow will hit 16,000 around December.

Re: Very surprised at the stock market

Actions by the Fed? What do they have left? That's the real danger, they have no cards left to play. Liquidity isn't an issue. Business credit availability isn't an issue, no matter what people say. If the Fed pumps more and more liquidity into the economy as a result of the current slowdown in growth, then you'll have an even higher spike in commodity prices. The inflation hawks are (rightfully) growing more influential within the Fed, anyways. May God help Richard Fisher find the Chairman's seat.

The sky's not falling, but I wouldn't place too big of a bet on things being peachy in the investment world towards the end of the year.

I don't know squat about the market. I just know we're doing bad, how, why, how will it impact me etc., I've got no clue.
