When Will the Market Wake Up?

************************************************* Profit from the Pros ** Tactics that Work in Good and Bad Markets ** ************************************************* Right now the stock market is sleepy…listless…boring. That is a departure from the usual holiday sessions where stocks glide higher on Santa’s sleigh. Probably the difference this year is the ton of profit that was made immediately after the election. Investors are just getting a jump start on some of the corrective actions that would normally have taken place in the first quarter of the New Year. Sooner or later the market will ride higher thanks to an expanding economy and still attractive earnings yield valuation. No need to guess exactly when that will happen. Just stay long in preparation for that most likely outcome. ************************************************* ************************PFP Sponsor Ad****************** Just Days Away: Zacks Top 10 Stocks for 2017 This long-term investing opportunity positions you for market-beating gains no matter the direction the market heads.
