    Yes, Hoop, it's true that the two indices pretty much track each other and that the Dow has the historical data argument on its side. But the fact remains that one follows 30 stocks and the other 500. For a clearer snapshot of market movements I'll go with the S&P.

    I do appreciate your technical analysis - adds an important dimension to our understanding of the market.

    .....Yeah sure, I do too, most of the "todays" stuff I do and read involves the S&P not the DOW...As most investors "live the moment" I would assume the S&P is their market of choice...and more companies in the index lessen any possible one company temporarily upsetting the indices...Mind you in saying that..Apple commands a large chunk of the S&P500 ...

    Another record high. It just keeps on going. When will this Bull end? Might go for another 4 years if they get their "phenomenal tax plan" in the states.....

    As stated before I would suspect the SP will reach about 2500 based on the fifth wave approximating the same distance as the first wave.

    At some point DOW should reach top in the current major uptrend.

    @TheStalwart: Uh oh. Last time we had a streak this long was 1987. And we all know what happened that year. #KnowYourHistory https://t.co/jmcz5hpeLM

    This 'wall of worry' is very high so a lot more climbing to do I reckon

    No worries here ......though Aaron's wait for the bargains seems a forlorn wait

    I feel sorry for Aaron, he might learn that timing the market is pretty much impossible. But yep the wall of worry... could keep going for a while yet but keeping watch myself as things are looking a bit stretched.

    I appreciate your pity.
    I am supposed to be coming up with an investing plan and starting to spend time looking at annual reports so that I might have an idea when a company is a bargain, when the crash finally happens ((not long to go now) although Warren Buffett doesn't share my pessimism but what does he know)
    As of today just procrastinating and falling further behind financially.
    Sorry to hear that Winner69 can't afford honey now that it is too expensive my woes pale into insignificance compared to the plight of the baby boomer generation.

    Aaron - you should at least dip your toes in , though no need to dive headfirst with ALL the swag. Smallish entries over a period of time will allow you to develop your investing skills without losing your shirt even if there is big bang.

    I agree that values are stretched in general but there are always some interesting prospects to be found and if not true value then at least good growth possibilities.
    Pushpay would be my recommendation. Buy on dips.

    (PS I know this comment is not relevant to the DOW)
