Wait a second. The dollar is weak, helping exports. Interest rates are down, making stocks more attractive. Inflation is low and oil is going down.
That's pretty fabulous for every single kind of stock other than the banks, and I would start to buy the banks here off deregulation.
Now if the stock market is simply nothing but the approval ratings for Trump, then, yes, I could see why you would sell the market.
And if the stock market is totally reliant on the Fed raising rates three times, I could see why you would want to sell stocks.
But if the market is made up of stocks of companies that could do well on their own without tax reform in 2017, then why would you sell other than you are scared that you have been paying too much?
If you are like me, there are many stocks you have been waiting to get in, including some of the banks.
But that's because the market ex the financials is stronger than you think because the world is getting stronger and earnings are pretty darned good.
