    Reinvestment in much more reliable than capital gains as a source of wealth creation in much the same way as selling options is more likely to pay off than buying them. I look around and I don't see much chance of even a 5% correction. Is there any news that indicate the Dumbs will do well even at the state level? With the idiots in charge at any level of government the probability of a downturn and therefore my reinvestment rate goes way up. Just asking.

    The probability of a correction is 100%.

    Just depends on when.

    :p

    Corrections are healthy.

    Yeah, I'm just bored. In percentage terms the market is just sitting there fat, dumb and happy with a less than 1% fluctuation.

    100% It's just a question of when and how big a correction

    Here's hoping for big and soon. I like it when my monthly yield increases.
