    It certainly does look like someone is buying the dips. I was thinking of getting out this week and then back in again later in the month but so far it doesn't look like a market we can time.

    So, maybe irrational exuberance is driving this train now. I certainly am planning to increase exposure..everyone else is too. (so that scares me a little bit). I just hate leaving so much money on the table after 8 years of being out of the market. Its my goal is to increase the pot about 25% and I think patience and 3 years can do that without crazy risk but I wont start pulling money to live on until I reach my goal (or 70 1/2).

    Well right now I think it's exuberance over the tax bill. That was priced in last year, but the affect is just getting started. How long it will last is anyone's guess. Any news driven event could throw a bump or two in its way short term as it still heads up long term. Last year was a Buy-N-Hold year and so far I don't see this year being any different. The only problem is that I'm no longer the Buy-N-Hold type.

    Wow! Someone is still buying the dips. You just can't time this market. Looks like Buy-N-Hold is still the way to go for now.

    What a resilient bull market. Can't even get a decent down day when one is due and has drivers for it.

    So, if it actually comes to shutting down the government does that mean our IFT's don't get processed until they get back from furlough?

    Don't think so. I don't believe it has an impact at all.

    Glad to hear that. After all I'll have all that extra time on my hands to see how it effects the market.

    I finally gave up on the S Fund. I have moved 100% from S to C. I should have done this looooong ago.

    Fed leaves rate unchanged while signaling a March increase.

    Looks like the market didn't like that.
