Looks like 'Sell in May' might not have been such a bad idea. DOW down 2% June 1.

If it is after 5:00 when I post I reserve the right to disavow anything I posted.

Actually I think it is just little profit taking.

If it drops to 1250 I will do it again. I can adjust the AA but I'm not going nuts and getting back to a 65/35 AA, presently it is 35/65 and I sleep much better for that. 40/60 maybe 50/50 for a while is ok then back to 35/65. I've learned market timing is just not worth it.

Free advice and it's worth exactly what you paid for it!
