    Tick tock. No one really knows when but we may see one this year if my calcuations are right. I've been doing trading for decades and this seems about right. I've pulled enough of my profits that i can weather the correction this year.

    My concern is the real estate market and how it will affect the other stocks. It's a domino effect and our real estate has been on the verge of taking a dive.
