Unfortunately for you, our intelligence assessment test only has one question: How to use the word "brake" correctly in a sentence. The answer was "break". Sorry.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I agree we are not in a BEAR market. On the other hand, I would not be surprised if we don't land there pretty soon. Too many top level investors are pushing the worry button right now.

And there is actually some very good advise in that article.
Any time "...top level investors start pushing the worry button..." is the absolutely best time to start buying, buying, buying...

^ You do realize, I hope, that just because you put it in a will, that doesn't mean the state magically makes it happen. Right?

Like if I said "I want to will my son a bajillion dollars," the Magic Will Fairy isn't going to come along and make a bajillion dollars instantly appear in my son's bank account...

...

Just wanted you to be clear on that. Might need to call the attorney.
