TSX, Toronto stock exchange 19.1% YTD, very similar to the Dow's 22ish.

Should we thank the Dems ?

this is interesting

a little surprising.

The CAC40, (French), DAX (German), hell, even the Belgies outperformed the DOW.

How did that happen ?

Wow, those Dems are powerful. :-)

They had a lot more room for improvement.....and it's good for the world....REALLY good, when the U.S. economy is booming. Again, thank God for the Democrats. Four more years of President Trump is virtually being guaranteed by them....it's AWESOME...and not pesky at all. LMAO

Damn......more records.  LOL

Is there anybody who doesn't have money in the stock market that feels like explaining why?  It's inconceivable to me that everyone, no matter how small of an amount, isn't invested in some way.

My brother in law asked me what a good market investment was 4 years ago, I told him "Almost everything these days, just drop it in a total market index fund and your golden". I don't think he acted on it, probably out of fear of the market being at a high. I thought it was too, but I went ahead and continued to contribute every month anyway which turned out pretty good so far.

Can't say I'm not nervous though, like I'm at the casino and I should be cashing out my chips while I'm way up. If the economy is so strong why has the fed continued to cut interest rates? And if we did see a big economic drop interest rates are already pretty low. This usually does run up the market as bonds are less attractive. I don't think I have any real reasons to be pessimistic and think we won't continue to have growth, but the feeling still lingers. How often do you rebalance your investments?

The last time I rebalanced was just before the last election.....and it probably cost me 100 grand or more.  I didn't know what the markets where going to do if Trump was elected so I sat out.  By the time I figured I better get back in I had missed a 6-10% gain.

I likely will again before this next election.....because I guess I haven't learned a damn thing....but I'm very close to retirement now and I've made so much the last 3 years, and to be fair, in the 8 years prior, that I don't need more to see my retirement plans through.....I just need a couple more years of work so I can get 3 kids out of college and on their own.

I agree that it's hard to get in when the market looks like it's topping out....but there was no choice as far as I'm concerned.  And in the Obama years, when the Fed was basically promising you it would not let the market go into a bear cycle, you had to either be uninformed, insane, or just plain stupid not to invest in it.

In short, from what I can see and read, this Bull market has a ways to run......but I agree that it's troubling that interest rates are this low still....not much room for the Fed to add protections if needed.  I don't know when, but soon I'm going to take a break.  I have enough and I've never been greedy.  My retirement plan doesn't require more than a few fishing poles and a boat. 

I also don't trust the Democrats to not do something to try to wreak havoc on the markets and economy in general.  They can't find any other way to stop Trump and they seem more and more desperate.  They have been led down a rat hole by their current leaders.  I don't know what will come out the other end, but I doubt it'll bear any resemblance to the Dem party I used to know.
