    As a CAUTIOUS INVESTOR, I offered a prayer of thanks & did some SAFE PARKING of our 2017 gains … I felt an instinct to move to greater equity safety & LOCKED profits today … I moved from 91% “aggressive growth” mutual to 50% in 401k …I am not getting greedy at these lofty levels as I locked 000s into money market for future buying OPPS 🙂 AKA “buy on dip” with dry powder in future … This may be a mistake as markets could soar further in the skies — I am very thankful for 2017 stock performance — in some of most turbulent times we have seen in human history

    markets will continue to move until interest rates rise enough to slow down the economy
    maybe stocks don’t outperform 2017 – but they will be higher
    I do see 4 rate hikes in 2018 and a market crash in 2019-20

    They couldn’t keep the bull rage on the final day – typically a signal of a downturn in January and a steady swing higher once a base is in. Let us see 🙂
