    I am in general... but I have done better year after year regardless of who's in the White House.

    401K is CERTAINLY doing better. And I expected that. But no salary increase under Trump. And price increases are starting to bite. And I am about ready to head into retirement. Am watching the markets very closely. Stock market MAY be nearing a peak, but that is by no means certain yet. I expect home prices in my neck of the woods----northern Colorado----to continue to rise for another year or maybe two, but at a more gentle rate, with mortgage rates now rising. I may decide to sell my home in a year or two and move overseas. Have not made up my mind yet on that.
    Thanks from BigBob

    Shouldn't be. Market is up sharply today. I keep dumping money INTO my 401K, month after month after month. Yes, the market peak was in late January, but it has been edging up again lately. The trade war with China seems to be on hold, for now at least.

    How can that be? Market is dramatically up over 1000 points over the last week alone.

    Yea stocks are flying again today due to China news. Heard Jim Cramer from CNBC, say he thinks Kudlow wants to completely open China to American companies and the market is reacting. I guess Kudlow is going over there soon to discuss some sort of economic incentives.

    Our family is embarrassed to be American, we are ashamed of our nation.
