    Just heard a host on a radio stock show say that today
    is a triple witching day. He said that the markets act
    more irrationally than usual on a triple witching day.

    If today is a triple witching day, I don't think I like triple
    witching days.

    Just talked to an old friend of mine who just retired. He said he was able to retire because his portfolio has been 60/40 (stock/bond&cash funds) since right after the bottom in March 2009. (He has part of the bond portion in PTTRX) And, the equity portion is well diversified. Seems like a fairly conservative approach. But, he's done very well.

    And, he said he expects the stock rally to continue for years (with periodic interruptions for pullbacks and corrections). He mentioned something called a secular bull market. Is he delusional?
