The reporting time kept my spirit high. Two days later as while the politicians  were attending  George H.W. Bush funeral, the traders were shorting the market.

From year on year basis I will be lucky if by end of December I remain in black, in spite of  investing additional $21K into my private pension account this year.  The market is “a growth” market, as S&P500 does not generate about 2% a year in dividends. With my current assets allocation and “America First”, whatever gains there are in S&P500 the loss is in Eurozone and Emerging markets.
