As long as the trend is from the lower left to the upper right... It's a good thing.

It's been over and back twice today...

Yea, but it wears off.... I think even faster than before, but I do not want to do a test to prove one way or the other....

But 14,000 is such a PRETTY number.

It is nice to have a month when the generated investment returns cover a full year of the projected amount one plans on withdrawing during retirement. If this keeps up for a few more months (HA HA HA!) I might move my target retirement date up.

According to my calculations, it should be 14,163 on March 1st. Could be 1 or 2 points higher or lower.

As Jack Bogle recently said "14,000 is just a number."

It was the best January for the DOW since 1994, and the best for the S&P500 since 1997. So it may well be another couple of decades before we see a repeat.

And then today (Feb 1) we got the DOW closing above 14,000 and the S&P500 closing at a new 5-year high.

To thoroughly jinx everybody, tonight I'm going to see whether my Jan 1 withdrawal has already been paid for YTD. I think it might have as it was very close on Jan 29.
