Why 2015 market looks too good to be true

Predictions for 2015

2015 by most accounts is expected to be a good, but not a great year for the stock market.

The U.S. stock market however, unlike others around the world, is expected to enjoy a "just right" environment of improving growth against a backdrop of tame inflation, low energy prices and low interest rates.

It sounds too good to be true, but then again so did 2014's stock market, which closed out year with solid gains. The Dow ended the year up 7.52 percent, helped by a fourth-quarter gain of 4.58 percent, while the Nasdaq and rose 13.40 percent and 11.39 percent, respectively, for the year.
