I'm 23, planning on retiring next year. At 1%-2% gains per day, it shouldn't be a problem. Been investing 'long term' over the past 2 years.
Looking for another 2% today.
No reason this uptrend should not continue indefinitely.
Remember to diversify. You should add lots of bank stocks here. They're the best ones to own.

No way. Try 2013. Easy as cake.
