    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.

    First paragraph from a The Australian article

    Donald Trump’s address to Congress on Tuesday tonight (early Wednesday afternoon AEDT) will either put some foundations under the “Trump Bump” that has inflated equity markets and the US dollar since his victory last year or demolish them. There’s trillions of dollars now riding on how the markets receive the address

    Didn't bother reading the rest as the writer must be climbing the wall of worry

    No worries

    But if Trump gets too enthusiastic will Janet 'repond' and have a few rate increases.

    Markets were moving with all of worries. Even overlooked cheap markets such as Russia, Brazil and Hungary also delivered big gains in 2016. There is always something to worry. After DOW and other extended bullish markets, there could be bullish opportunities in overlooked markets next. I strongly believe current overlooked dirt-cheap markets also could deliver big gain in 2017.

    Twiggs citing Bulkowski's falling widening wedge as 87% probabilty of upside breakout.

    My estimated target met. Dow hit 23000 for the first time. Will markets fall going forward? I am bearish on markets now especially on extended stocks but still I have faith on great value stocks and attractive defensive stocks.

    A lot has happened in the last couple of months with the DJIA now looking determined to hit 25000. Don't they know that Santa's been and taken his Rally home for another year!

    One could say that was a prescient post macduffy, so soon after it looks like 25,000 is a decent support at the 50MA, another 500 points below here, assuming that holds. Amazing to see the local punters reacting to the downturn like it's a one-day reversal and bargain time, so buy! Probably never seen a decent market correction or rout which unfolds over weeks or months. Not saying this will, but still interesting behaviours.

    Interesting that the Trumpet holds market strength so dear to his success and re-election, then apparently puts that to the sword declaring a ramp from 10% to 25% tariff for $200 billion worth of trade with China, sending the DOW futures into a tailspin currently off 550 points leading into the US open markets.

    Just a bluff by Trump and a buying opportunity as local markets react, or is he shafted the market and his re-election hopes? Either way, the market reacts quickly and violently, if futures hold on current sentiment, tomorrow looks grim for world markets and locally that inevitably follow.

    He has been a trader’s dream this past several months, many have done well out of his tweets. I am not a trader so have had to ride the tweets out. Interesting to watch that as of into the late NYSE morning....the Dow has recovered about half of its initial fall...who knows what the afternoon will hold....last November/December the falls and gains were bigger....maybe this will get bigger if the talks truely stall, or maybe, it will all ping if everything works out.

    I think you will find his re-election chances will be fine either way. Lowest unemployment since 1969 in the US currently, 263k jobs created last quarter (or was it month) and the Dow up 40% odd since his election. He is polling better now than he did on election day 2016 and the markets are pricing in a Trump victory in 2020.
    Heaps of other achievements like ISIS defeated (something Obama did not want to do or could not do) seemed so simple in hindsight, many court judges appointed and the Senate keeps confirming them (that is why Trump put emphasis on winning the Senate not the House), Black and Hispanic unemployment at record lows too. The US just keeps on winning.
    Gallup - Presidential job approval at this point in the first term:
    Carter 37
    Reagan 43
    HW Bush 76
    Clinton 51
    W Bush 70
    Obama 44
    Trump 46

    Suddenly Trump is higher than Carter, Reagan, and Obama in approval via Gallup. Pretty stunning considering where Trump's approval has been.
