Market Update - January 7, 2014 - How Will the Market do in 2014?

In 2013 the S&P 500 finished up more than 30%. Looking at 2014, many wonder what we have to look forward to? Statistically, the odds for another great year are not good:

  • The US Stock Market has only went up 6 years in a row once in the last 100+ years

  • Valuations like PE10 are showing the market as overvalued (too high)

  • Technical indicators like RSI are showing the long term market strength to be the most overbought since the late 1990s

All that aside, it still doesn't mean a crash is coming, especially anytime soon.
