I am in the last part of the accumulation phase, so that would really dampen my mood! I don't think anybody can foresee our economy that much into the fugure, so one can only hope.

If the news stays positive there is no reason we can't rally even more. We'll need the obligatory pause at some point, but I think the next two days look net-up.

My advice? Read financial magazines and sales pitches, paying particular attention when non-financial magazines suggests a good investment. When you read enough, you will get a feel for what is hot, trendy, and being overpriced.

Don't buy those stocks or funds!

In my experience, by the time the information that I get has filtered down to that level, the trend is priced into the product. Trying to out-sharp the fray is fishing over-fished waters and playing to brokers strengths and individual investors weaknesses.

My strengths are time and the nerve to buy when I have just 'lost' several years income in the market. I am still working on the acumen to sell when things are so good that they can't go down. The best that I have found so far is re-balancing and indexing.
