Trolly? Had to look that up. Trolling is when your offensive or trying to make someone mad. I dont think I'm offensive or anyone is mad. And what do you care what I do with my time boss?

I think Frank is probably getting a little tired of my gleeful announcements that "my portfolio hit a new all time high today!", since they have been repeated several times a week lately.

I know small caps are often viewed as the canary in the coal mines but with S&P500 drastically outpacing Russell WDYT?

1000 Dow points is only about 4% now. I can recall when it was 100% or more.

Honestly.....does it really matter if the DOW, S&P 500, Russell 2000 increases/decrease 10, 20,, 30 %? I don't think so. With an appropriate AA; it is an opportunity to re-balance. Buy stocks on the cheap. Buy bonds on the cheap. It is all good.

For me, it only matters if the future is worse than the past and if my WR turns out not to be safe and I have to get a job to support myself and if I can't find one. At the moment, it seems like pretty slim odds that will happen. But things can change.

I hate to be a wet blanket but I personally just don't think the stock rally will last much longer. The tax cuts are already factored in. I hope I am wrong but I just don't see a reason for the market to continue up. We are overdue for a correction/recession. I am rebalancing frequently.
