You all know that I have a peeve about ridiculous statistics. If you haven’t listened to the financial press recently, you’ve missed all the talk about how the DOW has risen 10 days in a row! It hasn’t done that since 1993. Also the DOW is up 11% this year. Since 1950 there have been 12 times that the DOW has been up 8% or more before March 15th. In 10 of those 12 years the DOW was higher 3 months out – between 1 and 6%.
