Markets Made 'Unchanged' Into 20 Percent Gain: Chet Currier of Bloomberg

"If this steady-as-you-go spell has been tough on traders, it has gone down just fine with buy-and-hold investors in the stock market and stock mutual funds." -- Mr. Currier. Pithy and true. If you have been trying to game the Fed, building some sort of trading approach around what will, you hope, go up when an interest rate cut comes, then you haven't made much, or maybe you've even lost ground. If you were just well-invested, well allocated, and so on, you've reason to be smiling as you read this.

Is there a lesson in this? You bet. What has worked in investing continues to work.
