Dow update

Adjusted for CPI inflation, the Dow is now back to where it was in December 1995.

This is still above the peak of the previous long cycle, ending in January 1966 - and still over 4 times higher than the low of July 1982. We only think of it as catastrophic because we got used to more recent, wildly inflated valuations.

I'm still hoping that the end position will be no worse than 4,000 points - a drop of 45% from today's close.
