Up and down, up and down, so the stock market goes every week as computerized trading makes millions by manipulating, buying and selling stocks at will…instantly. It’s a rigged game.

This rigged market has absolutely nothing to do with the real economy of America. Half the country is on food stamps, half the property sold is Wall Street investment all cash, the banks are still goosed by the Fed; this is a fake economy created by bankers that enriches them, and destroys the middle class.

Boy, awful lot of complaining. By people who have zero in the market, I’m assuming.

Funny, for being a “rigged market”, I certainly made a lot of money the last few years. I’m not one of the evil “one percenters”… Just a regular, hard working guy. Just did my homework… have some basic funds… Boom. 26% gain in 5 years. Try doing that with some crappy savings account, or CD. Even if the market took a major dip tomorrow, I’d still have more than that in the end, just through dividends and compounding.

People can whine all they want, but you’re just depriving yourself.

You’re absolutely right dd606. I cannot for the life of me understand how the market has levitated to these heights based on fundamentals. That said you cannot argue with reality. Probably the best approach is a balanced approach, which always makes sense.
