I sent a 'thank you' note to my financial planner.

[and on the way to not having to pay any taxes {federal } this year]
same as last year. Maybe I should be a GOP member??

This.

The market has no real connection to the greater economy anymore. That isn't to say you can't make money but don't think that because the DOW is at 14k that the overall economy is also running at full steam.

The Fed/Govt's aim was to juice the market, create a wealth effect and another asset bubble. They succeeded. At catastrophic cost to most of the population and economy, but they juiced the market.

There is no reason for the stock market to be where it is at.. but nevertheless, it is... I rode it up to this far but I am pulling out in the morning..No concrete reason other than I can afford to sit in a fixed account and wait it out until it adjusts.. it's been a hell of a run
