2. 129 now isn't exactly like 129 in the first part of the recovery ...

Just wait until Boner comes back from his masters after presenting them with the "deal" he and Obama agreed upon ...

Then you'll see the market crash again ...

3. This called "profit taking". Cashing in on the gains.

It's fairly typical. at a drop of 129 that's less than 1%

6. We're seriously overbought. Need to shed at least 4 percent.
