Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have thought the Dow was overvalued since it hit 1200 in the early 80's.

In my opinion current fair value about 3000 - 4000.

But what do I know ?

Precisely my own thoughts.  My other response to this diary is to remember that the Dow Jones is NOT the economy, and less so now than before.

Just follow the Dow.

One cannot infer causality from correlation.  My brother made a lot of money for a while by speculating in commodity futures basing his predictions on Fibonacci ratios.  Needless to say, he's just another aging working smuck now.
When price / earnings ratios ceased to be as important in financial predictions and investment decision making as the occult and magical mathematics, the stock market took on magical properties as well.
Now we may get to see it behave like a rabbit in a magician's hat.
