Why There’s No Such Thing As A Stock Picker’s Market

“The stock market index isn’t supposed to rise over the next few years.  That’s why it’s a stock picker’s market.”  

I hear that a lot.  In fact, I’ve been hearing that every year for as far back as I can remember.

    TD Direct International in Luxembourg was acquired by J.C. Flowers & Co., a U.S. investment firm, and will be going by the name: Internaxx. Do you have any comments or insights about this change in ownership? I use TD Direct International, so I am wondering if there will be any problems or issues with the change over. Thanks.
