Given the fact our forthcoming president is a real estate mogul, it’s amusing that the industry most vulnerable to a big price drop is, in fact, real estate (I’ve already witnessed it here in the Silicon Valley, where prices started slipping this summer).

SPX has gone a bit higher than Stan was expecting this morning, but there was a big volume spike yesterday that strongly supports his expectation that a significant high is being made here, and that we may well retrace much or all of this powerful post election rally. These don’t always deliver, and I haven’t had a chance to run through performance over the last twenty years yet, but I’ve put these down as 85% odds of a significant high within three days and I think that’s conservative.
