Sorry you couldn't access the article, I don't subscribe but was able to open it regardless. The article pretty much says that after nine years of a bull run and the US as well as the global economy hitting on all cylinders thing are almost perfect and when things are going so well it is usually a time to expect the unexpected. They interviewed a number of financial personalities and their different takes on how things may or may not work out. Some saw the US tax reform as a vehicle with some yet to be discovered unintended consequences that may not bode well.

Nothing earth shattering but some food for thought.

Thank you. I was able to read it by googling it. I didn't know to do that! You learn something new everyday. Interesting article. With so much uncertainty in the markets cash is sensible I think. I just don't know what to do with my extra cash, so I continue to let it build.

I didn't read the article, but I am pretty sure that it's always time to expect the unexpected.
