Raymond James Analyst Is Out With A Major Bearish Call

"If the market is to make a new high this rally must break through the resistance in the S&P 500 around the 1950 area on increasing volume.

With Bloomberg siphoning off millions of liberal votes, Democrats would not only lose red states they customarily write off, winning solid blue states would require a far steeper climb.
