Dear Clients,

As you know, I’ve been viewing the market with much skepticism for the last half of 2009. If you haven’t done so, please take a look at the email comparing the  S&P 500 over the last 3 years with the Justin Mamis diagram of market sentiment-driven cycles. That will show you why I’ve been concerned.
But, it’s time to fish. So, you will see me invest around 10-20% of your portfolio each month, thus dollar cost averaging into the market during 2010. If we have a big drop, we’ll take advantage of that through dollar cost averaging. If the market keeps going straight up, we’ll have some money invested.
If you have any questions, please give me a call.
Dale
