If history repeats itself the market could do well over the next few months.

What a day for the market. Bernanke certainly did not disappoint the market with the more than anticipated one-half point rate cute to the fed funds rate. History tells us that over the short-term (1-5 days) we should see a decline although as we go further out (three months) the market typically performs quite well.

Volume in advancing versus declining stocks was a tremendous 25-to-1 today. The last time the market experienced such a huge discrepancy was 25 years ago. Furthermore over the last 50 years the market has only witnessed this type of situation 7 other times, in which all instances were higher three months later with an average return that exceeded 9%.

I know many of you are here for the Diagonal LEAPS Stratetgy that I plan to start next Monday. I know I mentioned going over the basics tonight, but due to time constraints the first installment (and the second) will have to wait until tomorrow.
