Profit from the Pros

Classic Bull Market Behavior

The market is up +4.8% so far in 2017 and +9.7% since the election. That is a lot of gains in a short time.

The problem is that many investors who have missed the train keep hoping for stocks to retreat. Some glorious pullback that allows them to get on board at lower prices?and soothes their bruised egos about all the missed opportunity of late.

Thursday gave those investors more false hope. That came in the form of an intraday drop that evaporated as stocks rebounded into the close.

That is classical bull market behavior where all dips are shallow and short lived. My prescription is to take two Zacks #1 Ranked stocks and call me in the morning ;-)

Best,

Steve Reitmeister
