“The things that make us happiest are usually right in front of our faces, but we stop noticing those things after a while. Today is a great day to start noticing again.” ~ Author Unknown
The indexes all hit new highs this past week! The markets just don't want to stop going up, but the Nasdaq is showing a slight pullback now. However, the DOW and the S&P closed at a new high on Friday, but the S&P has been in a sideways chop for last couple of days (see chart below). I don't think anyone can predict where we go from here, but I personally would like to see a 5-10% pullback so I can put some cash to work in my investments. Also it would reset the markets to give some trading opportunities. I did not trade last week.

A good article for those that need help creating a budget. If you want to be financially responsible, you have to have a budget! I update our budget every year, and wouldn't know how to live without one.
