    S&P reached a record high in January

    OR, NOT AND/THROUGH. What was the return of the S&P in 2011 or 2015? Meaning those two years the market essentially traded flat or in a range similar in magnitude to the time period you were just criticizing.

    I mean, over the last 10 years the trend is definitely there. And, just to clarify, I'm using the term bull market here to suggest it going up - not the technical 20% up from a bear bottom definition (that ended last year at 3400+ days). I'd argue that the sell-off we saw during Q4 was a bit pre-mature and exacerbated by quants and tax-loss harvesting. I also understand what you're saying about a trading range, but that argument could be had for other periods in this bull market. Just look at the S&P for 2011 or 2015.

    S&P reached a record high in January

    Growth is going to be the name of the game, but I'm not quite sure how much higher we can go. Wage inflation is what I'd really like to see tick up, but at full employment and the lowest weekly jobless claims in 49 years, I'm not sure what else can be done. As for the bull market term, when looking over the last 10 years, I'd argue that it is still an appropriate term to use. Granted Q4 was quite bumpy, but from a trend standpoint its hard to argue.

    You mean the record high?

    I think we're going to lose steam as soon as the latter part of this year. We're 10 years into a bull market and I just don't see a ton of growth outside the U.S. - China of course but Europe is a mess right now. However, I don't think it'll be nearly as bad as '08-'09.

    How in the heck did you originally post this July 19, 2018?

    JUSSIE SMOLETT: All charges DROPPED !!

    Well, for one, there was mounting evidence from the cameras of capturing the brothers purchasing the props, to their attorney looking to strike a deal, to Smollett seemingly now not caring about whether the perps are caught. Add that to the fact that it seems highly unlikely two racists would be out on one of the coldest nights in Chicago's history and are able to identify a particular black man from across the street, with just a little bit of logic you could see how this whole situation doesn't pass the sniff test.

    the day the dinosaurs died?

    The original article was so fascinating. I got about half way though on Friday and need to pick it up again.

    JUSSIE SMOLETT: All charges DROPPED !!

    Playing devil's advocate (and really just throwing this out there, because I have no clue whether the city could get any answers now that the case has been sealed), what if the federal government and POTUS are the only way to get answers / clarification? Granted, we then have to ask ourselves whether this case warrants additional resources. Honestly, I think the guy should be prosecuted given his theatrics and intentional race-baiting, but I'm not exactly sure what that'll prove. People are already dug in on their sides, whether they support him or not, and I don't believe any sort of conviction would sway individuals one way or another. What concerns me is this case allows for others to believe you can side skirt any ramifications of trying to create hoopla around a hate crime, producing more copycat like acts. That has the potential to not only divide this country further, as some will claim it is real and others will call it another Smollett farce. We will have to rely on the fact that there are some normal human beings who can objective apply a sniff test to each individual case. However, in a world that continues to be more and more polarized by political parties or acts, I fear the number of able individuals continues to dwindle. I think it is completely ridiculous that his attorneys are claiming he's 100% innocent and demanding an apology.

    I don’t have a dog in the fight either, but I believe you have to be pretty ignorant to overlook the fact they have the two brothers on camera buying the red hat and rope.
