    The Obama administration takes credit for the stock market rise as a sign that the economy is improving.

    In actuality it is only the fact that with interest rates at 0%, there's no other place else to put one's money.

    I've actually been itching to pull out of the market but this recent upswing is making me take my time in meeting up with my financial advisor. Hope I get out in time before she crashes.

    My primary stock investments are fairly stable and still will average between 15 and 28 percent returns on a ten year average, which to me is the only way to rate them. If a person try's to play the market and Day Trades to me they are on a losing course and I have known many more to lose their shirt than have made a killing that way!

    The stock market will eventually take from traders and give to investors !

    The market drives me crazy too, even more so since retirement. I think it may rise to 18,00o, then the bubble will begin to burst.
    But, regardless of that, once we get to 1 yr. out from the presidential election, for sure I would back off to a more conservative position.
    I think the market historically does poorly during this time.

    I cashed in my stocks for the down payment on my house. Lost about $3K in 2008, took another three years to get close to what I was built up to previously. Now I'm only invested in a couple 401k and 403b accounts, mostly because it's done through work and they'll match up to 6%.

    If you wish, but that certainly wasn't my intent. Cause and affect is universal, I just find it interesting to observe how little it takes sometimes to affect the value of stocks.
    I'll give you to the count of three to get off my property...one, two, BANG!
