well, there might well be 'seers' of the market,
and i'm surly not one, however my IRA was so disappointing
that i moved lock-stock-&-barrel out of 'Global' allocation in October 2000
and said that the 20+year Bear Market for 'Gold' was over
i look back on my charts & the $5.oo net asset value of the shares of Gold
was at the point that where 'Gold' took off on its 7 year Bull run.
having no extra funds to work with, i also realized in 1998 that 'Oil' at
the $10.oo bbl price was way too low...I tried to get into 'XTO' (Cross Timbers Oil) at $5.oo a share,
but at that exact time, 'XTO' ceased their 'Dividend Reinvestment Program'
and ceased their dividends & made another 3-2 stock split.
[[It took me months to save up the $5oo.oo to start a 'DRP' for 100 shares,
but i should have processed at least one month earlier, if i'd been psychic
that 100 share acct would of been worth something now as there have been a series of splits since after 1997; 3-2, 4-3, 5-4, 4-3. with XTO at $57.oo
at this date of friday 13th April 2007]]
but that's all forward looking from a past date...what's going on in the forward looking arena right now?

~i'd keep tobacco stock
~i'd keep DOW chemical
~i'd keep the salty snack/biscuit stock
then i'd listen & read others forcasts about the market, daily, or at least weekly
