Who will own the market in 2007? Will it be the bulls pitching stats about historical gains during pre-election years, or will the bears have their say as companies succumb to economic pressures?

I'm an optimist at heart. I'm still finding attractive stocks to buy. However, I also get concerned when folks are generally bullish, as they seemed to be in last week's Barron's roundtable.

If Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) teeters or the stock option implications run deep at Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), will the entire tech market crumble? Can the residential real estate bubble that has taken down companies like WCI (NYSE:WCI) and Toll Brothers (NYSE:TOL) bleed into other sectors?

Not all Fools agree. This week, Brian Lawler is bullish over the market's prospects for the year ahead, while Chuck Saletta is bearish. Who will win? It's time for our annual outlook bout, so grab a good seat and enjoy the fiscal fisticuffs.

Duel on!
