Stocks recouped some of Monday's losses today, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average ($INDU) and the Standard & Poor's 500 Index ($INX) finished March with their largest gains since October 2002.
Oh, perhaps if somebody had said to get into the market in mid-to-late February...ahem.
Oh, the big March rally in global equities wasn't enough to make up for the miserable returns of January and February -- at least not in my model portfolio of exchange-traded funds. But the rally has confirmed the optimistic bent of my portfolio, and I'm going to stay this course. I expect it to blossom with the spring.
I see. So, your investing strategy, Mr. Smartpants, is to get into the market after a rally? You, sir, are a fucking moron.
PS. These puff pieces make me nervous. I'll need to find out what a majority of Americans are thinking about the market right now. If they think it is going up, then sell. Another drop will come in before the actual bottom of the market.
Anyway, you should listen to ol' FLG. He predicted $2 gas when everybody thought it was going to $5 and now he called the bottom of the market two weeks early. That's right, biyatches.
