After a slight sell-off on Monday, the S&P rallied back putting in new closes and intraday highs (see chart below). It will be interesting to see what happens next week. The only fund in my portfolio that put in a new high was Total Stock (VTSAX), but my over all portfolio is getting closer to its all time high. Bond funds prices took a hit this past week, so glad I'm still in cash with my Total Bond (VBTLX) holdings.
Always be the best person you can be. Be kind even when you’re tired. Be understanding even when you’re angry. Do more than you’re asked, and don’t ask for anything in return. Don’t silently expect anything either. Listen when someone talks, and really listen too, stop just thinking of how you’ll reply. Tell people that you love them and that you appreciate them. Go out of your way to do things for people. Be the greatest person you can possibly be and when you mess up, make up for it in the next moment or minute or day. One thing you should never do? Never spend your time trying to prove to anybody that you’re great, your actions will speak for themselves and we only have limited time on this earth, don’t waste it. If someone doesn’t see your light, don’t worry. Like moths, good people are attracted to flame and to light, and they will come.
“At the end only two things really matter to a man, regardless of who he is; and they are the affection and understanding of his family. Anything and everything else he creates are insubstantial; they are ships given over to the mercy of the winds and tides of prejudice. But the family is an everlasting anchorage, a quiet harbor where a man’s ships can be left to swing to the moorings of pride and loyalty.” ~ Richard E. Byrd

The S&P had a bull flag breakout this past Tuesday, and the uptrend continued the rest of the week (see chart below). The question will be to see if we can go after new highs next week, or whether the uptrend will rollover.
