Financial history doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes. You can't be stupid enough to trade off anything I say.... I'm lucky they let me out of the straight-jacket long enough to trade.

I understand your point, and I'm not disagreeing, but unemployment, a lagging indicator, is not the ideal metric to compare 2004 and 2010 and try to relate this to stock price movement.

Industrial production or GDP would be a better comparo.
