Amazed by the Foolishness

Investors celebrated April Fools' Day by pushing the S&P 500 to a new record high. Most of the articles I read struggled to pinpoint a reason for this sudden move.

Don't be so foolish!

What a backwards way to look at the facts. Simply we are still in the midst of a long term bull market with an improving economy. Thus, higher highs are to be expected. It is the pullbacks from these peaks that should spark some debate as to why they are occurring...and when they will be over. This time was no different.
