Market Reverses After Fed Minutes

$$ - The market was on its way down today when the Fed minutes were released and juiced the market. Why?  The Fed indicated that they were ready to do whatever it takes to bolster the economy.

My thoughts are that Sell in May is still in effect and we're just at the top of the trading range.  I also think September may be horrible.  I wouldn't be surprised if profit taking sets in ahead of Labor Day - but that assumes folks come home from their vacations to sell!
