Interesting! If the increase hasn't vanished by closing, then I'm on board and ready to put on my party hat.

Good grief!

Just as I was watching the market going up a bit today, I saw this thread headline. My heart nearly stopped.

Oh please! Can we just hold off the glee just a bit, so that we can at least get a bit of gain to continue to eat the wholesome and tasty grass-fed beef, instead of the pink slime that the masses are getting?

Oops... I forgot that the gummint might be watching this forum.

I can not get too excited when it goes up because our gumint official announces they are considering printing more paper without backing.

If the market goes up because of favorable fundamentials I will get excited.

No trading here, but yet another all time record high portfolio for some reason. Seems like that has been happening a lot for a lot of us in this energetic market. Pretty happy with this bottom line.

Isn't it great? Of course, we'll probably lose part of them tomorrow, but the ride sure is fun

Yeah, only if you sold the shares and set aside the tax payment...

I love days like today making more in the market than I used to make working an entire month. Of course I did not cash it in. I did feel so good about it though that I picked up the tab at pool tonight.
