Oh no, not the dreaded wh@$&! My portfolio has been doing so well for the past 6 years, reaching a new high this month. I guess the party has to come to an end at some point.

Yep - buy high, sell in a panic. Shoulda guessed - we've more than doubled our market investment just in the YTD. Where else should the market be expected to go?

Well, I just rebalanced... This is a fairly rare occurrence because of the wide rebalance band I use. (May 2013 was the last time, July 2008 the time before) on the other hand I always seem to rebalance early so party on.

You know, I'm pretty sure W2R said Wheeee! several times during the last 6 years!

Harking back to my Navy days, I'd say that on the chart of retirement investing, W2R must surely be noted as a hazard to navigation.

There is a great clip out there of The Simpsons riding the Enron roller coaster.

For every low, there's a high and for every high there's a low.

When each of those might occur it seems only W2R will know.

Frankly I think Thursday and Friday was an aberration because the market is ignoring a lot of weak economic data. So it will probably be short-lived. But we can all still blame W2R when the market changes its mind.

I mean really, isn't this great? As often as we are gloomy about dropping markets, and as often as we read articles and threads about how we are in the beginning of a worse bear market than ever before, LOOK AT THIS MARKET TODAY! It's just wonderful. I wonder how long it can keep this up. Just look at how much you are up since the first week in January! Imagine what you could do with THAT in your pocket!

I don't know about you all, but I'm going to celebrate. In fact, my whole city will be celebrating with me all weekend clear through Tuesday, with parades all over town and crazy revelers everywhere.

Oh no......time to go all cash.

The TSX has not been doing as well as the DJIA but my personal Canadian portfolio has beaten the TSX and my personal US portfolio has beaten the DJIA over the past 3 years (see attachment). Maybe I should set myself up as a portfolio manager!

The TSX looks terrible in this graph because of the rise in the US dollar.

Oh boy, I was wondering when a thread like this was going to rear its ugly head.
