    The S&P 500 moved to within 18 points of another record on Monday, and there was chatter on Wall Street of a breakout being in the works that could reward bulls. And in spite of Tuesday’s pullback, the bulls continue to believe the index will soon rally above its record

    The stock market…a place where rationality has been thrown out the door in favor of trading for immediate profits…profits based on what the government and Federal Reserve are planning to do next.
