Have we hit your first VP now that we have rallied 25 points past your buy signal?

The pop was big across the board as you and others pointed out. I'm having a very good day!

Well, Today the US tax code is finally a known quantity and in the final version it is very favorable to equity investments. For the ultra rich they now get a > 40% rate on earned income but only a 20% tax rate for capital gains or dividends. You can be sure that their future earnings will now shift into equities to generate income in these two areas.

I actually like the new Tax code a lot as it applies to investments.

Since I went to all cash last Friday, I had to buy back a lot of my positions today losing the 4% move since Friday, ouch!!
