Home sales are no longer a driving factor in the U.S. economy.
The move is still out of bonds and into stocks.
Federal pending boost then could create S&P highs.
There is often more to them  than meets the eye.
Contrary to popular wisdom, this spend adds to the private sector.
Keep buying these dips as there are still rewards.
There is no upside to running it like a profit-seeking enterprise.
It will tell you whether you need to worry about the market.
