The S&P this past week pulled back for two days, then up-trended for the rest of the week ending higher (see chart below). Friday closed only -1.84% below the previous high on 7/26/19 of 3025.86. Everything looks good in the investment world!

In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.

The S&P had a volatile week by dropping 3.75%, then gaining most of it back (see chart below). We are now only -2.44% below the previous high, so still everything looks good! I'm not going to begin to be concerned until we cross the -10% loss (2723.27) from the high and have a correction (shown by the thin black line on bottom of chart). But even then I'm not going to worry because I have the proper allocation to weather the storm. If you worry, you're holding too much in stocks!
