Where's That Rally?

The stock markets reversed course to start the holiday-shortened week, with all three major market indices falling between 1-1.4 percent on light to moderate volume. The S&P 500 is back in the red for the year - and I think it might have been my fault.

What was I thinking? A kind word, a show of affection, and some positive encouragement usually can change the sentiment of even the most stubborn of women. But, I mistakenly forgot that the towards the end of the year, the stock market sometimes doesn't behave like a forgiving woman, but more like a selfish and possessed little girl.

And while kind words and encouragement work for young ladies too, sometimes they require a little tough love and firmness in order to get them motivated. So, a change of strategy is required. Let's see if this exorcises her demons and helps turn her funky attitude around for the rest of the week.
