Weekend Reading: The Beginning Of The Ending

Submitted by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, A few week’s ago I discussed the post-election surge in the market based on rather optimistic outlooks as opposed to the technical underpinnings that currently exists.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Submitted by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog, I stopped trying to predict markets back in 2008 when the Federal Reserve, Treasury Department, Wall Street bankers, and their propaganda peddling media mouthpieces colluded to rig the markets to benefit the elite establishment players while screwing average Americans.
