The gains of 2012 have held strong. The recent fall in the S&P has taken away some of the first five month gains which I had, but over the months I had taken some profits and rebalanced my accounts at least three times.
So now I have some loose change available to invest in stock as we go into the third quarter.
I believe we will have a rough couple of months until September begins. A volatile market with lots of good opportunities.
At the end of the third quarter we will see a rise towards the end of the year maybe up to the same levels we saw in May. That is just my guess, and unless I change my opinion it will be the framework upon which I build my second half of the year financial plans.
