it did, in fact, surpass 16,000 before year's end
in January of this year, when it was around 16,450, I said "if I had stocks, I think I would sell them right now"
later the Dow went up over 17,000 but, right now, 7 months after my prediction
the Dow stands at 16,141 and, earlier today, it went below 16,000
I may not be all that in everything but, for whatever reason, when it comes to "economic predictions"
I continue, year after year after year, to do pretty well
