This year, we witnessed a raging bull equity market. 

Let's call the raging bull market the "Null Hypothesis of 2013" for investors. 

All year long, nearly 12 months now, I have listened to a lot of bull ---- from editors and readers alike who did not and will not accept that hypothesis.

The end of the year is firmly in sight.  With tongue firmly in cheek, I ask you to return to your high school or college statistics class to disgorge these definitions.



If you started this year bearish; or maintained a bearish stance during the year; or even if you were just modestly, technically bullish all year; you committed an error of the first kind. 

You rejected the null hypothesis of a raging bull market in favor of the alternative hypothesis of a bear market or something else.

My RTI Question today:  Fess up in public!  Did you commit an error in thought on this market?  Let us know which type of error it was, and what you learned from it.
