Here’s a good article from the Wall Street Journal weekend edition that should help remind investors to keep a close eye on portfolios and planning strategies in the midst of a strong market rally. Read the article here.
Brett Arends gives readers seven reasons to be cautiously optimistic with retirement accounts this year.
Based on what I hear from most people, it must feel great to see investment accounts adding a little much needed weight. It is especially important, however, to not forget past market corrections and do everything possible to avoid such a costly oversight if things cool off a bit.

Take care and have a great week!
