    So far I'm down -$75K on the week but today promises to get me some of that back - happy, happy, happy. Only 2 dividends for today so I'll pay a little more for my shares. I'll be chasing Ferdinand for many months going forward. I'm reminded that a funny thing happened on the way to higher stock market prices - the small guy missed out. It looks like we are headed for a melt up in stocks the rest of this month. Snort.

    "Of the 5 bull markets that made it to their fifth birthdays, they posted gains of 21% in year five, 0n average. For stock market bulls, a slow growing US-economy, at slightly less than 2%, is the sweet spot."

    Hard to believe it has been 790 days since a -10% correction - maybe it'll go 1000 days.

    Now might be the time to pick up some of the more hated stocks (coal, steel and materials) that "should" do well as the world economy recovers... just grabbed some more BTU, CLF and AKS.

    A few more buyers and we'll be back in uncharted territory come Monday - so investors who missed out on the recent bull run for stocks may still find that compelling investment opportunities remain. Hotwings is find some.

    Today is the first of four triple digit Dow gains - Monday should see a lovely gap up and away we go.

    My oceanic didn't produce any great shakes this week: -$27K, -$28K, -$7K, -$13K +$51K for a give back of -$24K. So I look forward to next week and some positive results and will continue to party on. Afterall time in the market can be more rewarding than timing the market.

    If interest rates are not to increase until sometime in 2016 - then I have to remember stocks rose almost every time the Fed has increased interest rates. Who knows where the Dow will be in 2016 - however we are in a new multi-decade Supercycle bull market. So the game is to accumulate as many assets as my wheelbarrow will hold. And if we are in the beginning of a new, secular bull market then volume will become very strong, afterall the market is discounting the future.

    Gotta keep the oil circulating so the bullish engine doesn't freeze up, so bought: GLW, BAS, VHI, AXLL along with 6 dividends due for reinvestment today. The relentless stock bull market continues - wishing for a double digit day before we close. Money is coming into margin nicely.
