But the DOW hit 14,000 today. Everything I see / read tells me to stay out (got out just after election), yet I am leaving money on the table it seems. I thought we were in a sell off when it started climbing back then, but I can’t see that lasting for this long.
It is a gamble. Keeping your $$$ in play may have netted you $1, $10, $100 grand, depending on what kind of $$$ you are talking about. But we always have to remember, gubmint or your broker isn't ever going to send you a warning notice 3 days before it comes crashing down. I also moved the last portion out soon after the election, have I left some $$$ on the table? Sure. It just isn't worth the risk at this point in time, JMO. YMMV
