That's awesome! Congrats.

I am not a market timer by any means but I must admit I'm getting a little nervous about the duration of this bull market. It has to end sometime.

That said, if you look at the thread I posted last night showing our portfolio balance over 25 years, you'll see that even after the crash of 2008, our balance was back to pre-crash level by the end of 2009. I'm sure we were far better off than all of the folks who panicked and sold when things declined and sat in cash for a few years until they felt comfortable enough to reenter the market.
