1900 is Nothing. Let's Talk about 2000

The surprisingly good February Employment report seals the deal that we will touch 1900 on the S&P very soon. What's more intriguing is what lies ahead.

Again, I think 2000 is in the bag this year. And decent odds of getting modestly above that mark. The only mystery is the twists and turns in the road to that destination.

Now, I don't pretend to have a foolproof map of when exactly to jump in and fact, no one has that map no matter what they tell you. So the wise thing to do is just stay focused on the longer term positives and don't sweat each step along the way.

Meaning that you should stay firmly on board this bull market until there is a more obvious reason to get defensive. And with your eyes on that prize, then it becomes easier to not sweat any temporary pullbacks Mr. Market may throw our way.
