A dovish statement (stimulative) on March 18th would weaken the dollar, lower interest rates and increase stock market values. With so much riding on the decision, debate and pre-positioning became fierce!

PROTECT THE SCOUTS, NOT THE INSTITUTION.

With current earnings trending toward $100, applying a simple conservative P/E of 13 presented 1300 as a stable base. The S&P 500 fumbled near this level frequently but seemed to find footing.
