Thought for the day, plus some posts on the Stock Market, Finance, Politics, and Life!
The S&P500 had an up week (see chart below) closing only -1.03% below the all time high close of 3386.15 on 2/19/20! The market is on fire and we can only hope better times are coming as the market is usually forward looking. Enjoy the ride, but don't get complacent and be sure to have the proper asset allocation to match your risk tolerance, as we all know the market can take a dive at any time.

The S&P500 had a slight sideways up week, but was unable to close at a new swing high from 7/22/20 of 3276.02 (see chart below). It has to close at new swing highs in order to have a chance of putting in a new all time high which was set on 2/19/20 of 3386.15, where we are currently -4.99% below. Only time will tell if we reach a new high, so stay tuned and enjoy the ride!
