US equitys have been selling and pumping up the stock market for the last 7 weeks.
US equity mutual fund flow data for the week ended February 27. We can now officially end the 2013 version of the "great rotation" myth because we just got our first outflow, after how many weeks of inflows? That's right: seven. Just like in 2011.

I also saw a headline that said Billionaires were selling off their stock as well recently. That usually precipates a collapse. But it's not happening now? Hmmm.....
I think that it is happening, but we can't have this Administration taking the blame now can we? Naaaawww! The media is protecting them for the most part.
The ugly is coming soon and picking up speed.edit on 6-3-2013 by TDawgRex because: added line

DOW TO GOLD RATIO
Does nobody here remember the plunge protection team
Does anyone check the dollar index?
Do we not remember that Gold prices are being manipulated??
Where did all the intelligent posters go
A small note on the frankly hilarious news that the Dow Jones Industrial Average smashed through to all-time-highs. First of all, while stock prices are soaring household income and household confidence are slumping to all-time lows. Employment remains depressed, energy remains expensive, housing remains depressed, wages and salaries as a percentage of GDP keep falling, and the economy remains in a deleveraging cycle. Essentially, these are not the conditions for strong organic business growth, for a sustainable boom. We’re going through a structural economic adjustment, and suffering the consequences of a huge 40-year debt-fuelled boom. While the fundamentals remain weak, it can only be expected that equity markets should remain weak. But that is patently not what has happened. With every day that the DJIA climbs to new all-time highs, more suckers will be drawn into the market. But it won’t last. Insiders have already gone aggressively bearish. This time isn’t different.
Is this the final blowout top? I’m not sure. But I would be shocked to see this bubble live beyond 2013, or 2014 at the latest. I don’t know which straw will break the illusion. Middle eastern war? Hostility between China and Japan? North Korea? Chinese real estate and subprime meltdown? Student debt? Eurozone? Natural disasters? Who knows..

I bailed in 2007, just before the crap hit the fan in 08.
I have money stashed here and there, but I stay far away from gold and silver.
