2017 S&P500 ending balance 2,595.00

I normally would say about 5% YTY, but I think the strength of the recovery thus far has been downplayed, and that will reverse such that luck and animal spirits will carry us north of 15%, so I went high end.

As usual, I'm a baby bear in this contest; the market has gone up for eight years in a row, but it has to go down sometime. I am predicting a 10% market decline, with the index falling by 12% because of the dividend yield.

Less bearish than I was last year and hope I'm just as wrong as last year.

Bonus predictions:

There will be a general but unimpressive selloff in early Jan with buyers coming back by the end of the month. Get your sell orders in no later than the 4th.

The news will not match the hype.

I predict the Dow 20000 will become an overhyped wall and that CNBC and other pornographers will keep us anchored with general predictions of doom. We'll smack into this wall several times.

We will cross 2550 during the year.
