2012 Market Outlook

Today’s markets are seeing a stretching of the stock market rally that started last October.  We have been advocating the long side for stocks since October 7th of last year.  Last week, however we mentioned that we got out of half of our long positions and today shall sell the remaining.  That will leave us with a short gold position equal to about half our equity base in terms of size.

Update:   With the magnitude of todays rally we oversold a bit to where we are 20 percent short stocks now.  For me the bellweather stock of the real world, Caterpillar, where I happended to work in the foundry during college, hit an important resistance level at 104.
