Sean, do you think the Government Shut-down might be the impedeist for a market correction?

Nope. While no one knows what the trigger will be and its always something different each time...it's not likely this. These have happened too commonly in the past and they're usually short-lived.

Nope. We've had a number of these in the past. There has been at least 18 government shut-downs that I can recall. So this is not something new. And the shut-down is likely to be short-lived. This one may only last days. There was one that lasted several weeks before.
