Markets continue to shrug macro concerns

Since the Fed is increasingly expected to maintain its monthly pruchases of $85 bn in assets into mid Q1 2014, many expect markets to remain boosted by Fed stimulus. Whether this fails to translate into real economic growth, markets continue to shrug macro concerns.

Euro is poised for a major drop, Gold's shine is off and with USD strengthening can't get to 1420, and the S&P500 also will make sideways movements as the strengthening dollar may put a damp on stock market advances.

1800 SPX looks like a no-brainer now. I think gold is more likely to keep making lower lows, at least until some real fear hits other investment assets. If gold and SPX both rally, wont that cause rapid losses in USD?

1800 SPX is the more likely result of taperless status quo. 1380s gold is feasible but not sure about 1420 before year end.

simply that Fed likely to continue existing level of QE for both bond purchases and MBS's. SPX could hit 1800 in a matter of hours/days, current level at 1772
