    Track my 401 on a weekly basis and I have not seen anything like what its done in last five weeks. All of the instruments are at 52 week highs save for the bond fund. I have a set amount I consider next floor up and I've blown thru 4 in that time. Strongly considering putting entire weekly amount in the Guaranteed fund which is cash that's pays 2.3%. Hate to buying at highs across the board.
    Your thoughts.

    Dont know why it went to dark font

    Would be nice to think we are on cusp of an economic renaissance with Trump deregulation, a rejection of heres your new normal, Brexit and a Chinese trade deal that doesn't allow them to steal everything in site,,,,,,Same for Mexico.....not sure that would be prudent to act on until its manifest

    S&P 500 P/E ratio is over 23 to 1. That is historically very high. Always good to look at how you are allocated as well as putting new money in when it gets this high.

    I'm overbalanced risk wise for my age the experts would say, but ya gotta make hay while the sun is shining. Figure if I stick 100% of new deposits in the money market fund and I miss some upside not a big deal and if it does reverse some in next 3 to 6 months I have a pile of money to put to work at lower prices

    I believe that the "stupid tards" are a significant portion of the electorate who will vote for whomever promises them more free stuff by stealing it from others.

    Especially high when the amount of stock buybacks is taken into the equation.
