From the I need to get out more department I was hoping this weeks Barron's would be online today and that I would not have to wait until Saturday, no dice.
The post yesterday where I sort of answered an asset allocation/retirement planning question drew some comments asking more questions. One thing I would say to anyone who is their own planner; get a book or something that goes into great detail about how to take income from your portfolio. I think you need to really understand the numbers here before you started taking anything out of your account.
The market put in a good showing this week as it moves closer to turning the dip into a V. I blogged several times that it seemed like this is what would happen so now that it has (so far), what's next?
I guess the dip, while it was happening scared plenty of people but it was so small that I have to think another one of some magnitude is waiting for us nearby. If there is another one and it starts big on day I'll think it a V and if the market goes down like a water torture I'll think it is the next bear market.
I was saddened yesterday to hear that Darryl Stingley passed away. The thing about his story that I had never thought about until now was how young he was when he took the hit from Jack Tatum; 27.
Did you see the BC/North Dakota finish? Nutty ending but the right team won.
