Today's show addresses the concerns for the durability of recent stock market's gains.  The prolonged low interest rate environment is forcing investors to plug their noses and jump into equities.  And perhaps the seasonal retirement plan contributions are a meaningful part of this. 

Later in the show I go on to highlight the financial sector and the new type of risk that it has been saddled with.  Too big to fail is still in the crosshairs of our politicians, so beware the lure of an easy gain or a dividend increase.
