First-time participant. It seems like history (for what that's worth) suggests it is unlikely to have two relatively flat years in a row, so in that sense, I'd say at least +- 15% for 2016. The crystal ball is always murky, but longer-term chart voodoo suggests to me that a market top could be developing (or perhaps is already in place from 2015). As such, I fear that upside could be quite limited in 2016 with the potential for a major correction or new bear market from 2016 into 2017 as a recession unfolds. My random guess is a 2016 S&P 500 intra-year low of 1590.
