Interesting, but if so why are international stocks lagging? Vanguard's ex-US fund is down 7.5% YTD.Fairly plausible argument.
Also, ugh, when it looked like things were going to be extra irrationally exuberant this morning I trimmed one of my positions, but just realized that wasn't going to be the case and it will likely close lower than it opened (it doesn't settle until after close so I am stuck with whatever happens). The position is an actively managed fund that I originally bought in taxable and then realized far too late that it's much better suited to tax-deferred. In January I rebought it in tax-deferred but needed to wait 30 days to sell it from taxable. I think we all know how that went. I had my first sale from taxable in April when the fund had rebounded from the bottom but it was still down double digits. I've been trickling it out the last few weeks and hoping to get back close to even from the whole debacle when all is said and done but who knows.
