10,000 vs. $75… And The Winner Is…

Posted: October 15, 2009 in Technology and Business
Yesterday the Dow crossed 10,000 for the first time in a year.  What could trump that?
 
Oil crossing $75 for the first time in about a year, too.
 
That’s my first tripwire to be cautious about the market.
 
The next one — a much more significant tripwire — is when oil hits $100 a barrel. 
 
At $100 a barrel, Americans — or should I say those folks that drive 2/3rds of the world’s largest economy — start feeling queasy about all the extra money they’re spending. 
 
And we know what happened to corporate earnings and unemployment acceleration the last time that happened.
