Pardon Me. Haven't We Met Before?

The stock market script the last few years has been a bit repetitive. This is not a complaint. Just an observation.

You see, almost every time we approach an important level (like 1800) we rally hard into the end of the week. The final tally is dangerously close to that new level and it tantalizes investors into pondering what lies ahead.

Will we break out above or will resistance be too great?

I don't know the immediate answer to that question this time around. However, I have no doubt that 1800 is not the final destination for this bull rally.

So let the chips fall where they may next week. I will just stay firmly bullish to rack up more profits whenever they roll in.

Why I'm Investing $117,238 In This Stock
-Jeremy Phillips, Motley Fool Chief Technology Officer

This company is growing faster than Apple,, and Google combined. In fact, I'm so confident about its profit potential that I officially promised our legal team I would invest five times more than I own in any other stock. And hold it until at least January 2018. But I'd rather not go on my million-dollar quest alone... so I'm inviting you to join me! You don't have to invest $117,238. But whatever amount you choose to put in, I advise you to do it NOW.
