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.

CNN always has the funniest articles on the stock market and economy in general.  It appears that nobody from that network can actually think rationally so doom and gloom in always the headline.  This one is a classic.  You have to read until the end to get the real "advice" on how you should handle this terrible crisis/calamity.

Damn, I waited too long. I was gonna move some money into the market if it looked to close low. My moves happen after last close. If she closes down again tomorrow I’m moving serious cash into the market and hope to catch the bounce. I think the market is waaay over sold.

Folks at CNN are popping champagne cheering for a market crash. They can hardly keep their smiles off their faces as they report on this. I’m not buying it. Coronavirus is gonna crash and market is gonna soar.

Federal Reserve announced extraordinary funding actions of more than $1 trillion to ease strained capital markets, DOW still down 8% today and on par with the beginning of 2018.

Whether or not you buy it, I think reelection chances aren't looking likely anymore.

That might be the view from Arizona......but in the midwest and battle ground (coal) states, no.....we aren't buying that at all.  In fact, we don't care one bit what liberals think about anything.  LOL

It's 8 full months before the election and you think it's a whole new ballgame because you watched democrats vote??  Look, I don't blame you for trying to find some light at the end of your dark tunnel.....but you've got quite a ways to go yet with the 80 year old tough guy.

The left never understood why the markets responded so well to President Trump......nobody expects them to understand that the current situation has nothing to do with the economy as a whole.  To call this a "bear market".....as some Liberal sources are starting to do, is to show a complete misunderstanding of the term. (but it is useful to keep the lemmings and twitter users in line)

This too shall pass.......I sure wish I had some extra cash to invest right about now.

Ha!
On January 28th I pulled a good chunk out of the market. I was going away 5 weeks, had a a "bad feeling" about a few things. It was a rebalancing and I was sure I would never get back in

Now I have the itch.

Good Canadian banks with a 7% dividend yield trading at 8x earnings...52 week low....33% off it's high.....hmmmm

I'm too old for this $hit

Tough guy LOL!!! There has never been a president with a more fragile ego.

It will be an uphill climb for reelection if the economy doesn't recover in those 8 months, consumer spending is going to take a big hit in coming months. I don't care what liberals think either, but for someone who does't care that seems to be the only thing you talk about.

Every day is a school day, fox business is a apparently a "liberal source" now? Bear market is a 20% drop which is territory we have reached, today was the biggest drop since the 80's.
