The Yo Yo Market

I can't remember a time where the market has been more volatile on news outside of the US. Sure, we've seen the market gyrate on earnings and economic numbers, but the news from Europe has been causing wild swings.

It's tough to have an asset allocation strategy when things outside of the US realm drives the gap up or the gap down.

Yet, I still persist. The Black Box has been pretty good through all this. I attribute that to the extreme readings we get on the rallies and sell offs. The charts still try to wade through the headlines.

My allocation remains the same. Cash, low beta stocks, oil, and a small caps holding.


Fantasy football has been rough this year. Can't blame Euro headlines for that, though...
