I believe you are right Tom, but I think how it will play out will be much different. It will probably result in a final last-gasp rally before it all falls apart. Just one more sucker punch to make everyone nice and comfortable before the rug gets pulled out from under.

You already have the Fed doing what amounts to clandestine-QE in the repo market, so as long as that is going on it will pump things to new highs. I do agree about your placements in bond-sensitive funds and avoiding commercial retail real estate.

Its going to be a tough year when it all rolls over.
