It was a fantastic week for the stock market which eased into the weekend with a whimper. It's a reminder the market doesn't go up every single day. I cringe when so-called stock market experts complain when the market stalls as though sideways movement after the post-election rally is a bearish sign.

A lot of folks have begun to return to the market, and many want to 'catch-up' quickly - in other words, make a lot of money fast. You cannot get gains of yesterday or the last several years when you invest today, which is why the continual dithering and procrastination is a critical mistake.

With that being said, the market and economy are poised to move higher. However, with higher expectations come more chances for disappointment. The myopic manner in which investors watch the market these days will lead to occasional overreactions. we plan to take advantage of those. Meanwhile, even in disappointment, there are slivers of positivism.
