Computer B: I see that A is now buying. To beat "him", I must now buy more than "he" does.

Humans: I don't know what's happening, but stocks keep going up. If I sell, I miss out and get called a DMT. So, I hang on while being scared like hell, because all this gain feels phony.

IMHO the market is going up over past 12 months for two reasons
1. The very real elimination of business regulations is good for profitability
2. The anticipated business tax cuts

Always good to remember the market tends to react to what people think will happen, more than what already happened.

I also agreed with the poster whi emphasized having an appropriate aa so a correction will not derail your finances

That's certainly one idea. I think it's due to wage growth and confidence followed by natural globaizational consequences...ie more volume and more traders. Of course the confidence could or could not come from your two ideas.

Here in Germany, we have neither. Still, the DAX30 is up 13.35% YTD (including dividends).

I'm with luck_club: "The problem is too much cash chasing too little return."
