No, stock market is tanking for a myriad of reasons...

There are no real fundamentals supporting the levels it is currently at...only a sea of magic money created by the gov't.

I'd really like it if the people that reply "No" can also add if they are self employed or obtain their health insurance via an employer or a spouse.

(Edit: The ones that said, "What letter" have already answered the above and don't need to as clearly you're the later.)

I am self-employed with no employees and pay for my own health insurance. I personally have no complaints, but everyone's situation is different.

Many economic indicators suggest lower earnings by the big Companies. At the moment, current P/E ratios are generally only supported by an increasing trend in earnings. This mis-match has been around for a while now. Eventually something had to give, economic trends have not moved much, so the price of stocks would have to come down. Current stock prices have been supported for some time by what I call unbridled optimism.

Long investors be wary for now.

Stock buybacks to boost earnings is not uncommon...especially when it is pretty cheap to borrow money right now.

I find it interesting that the Russell 2000 was up over 1% today.
