    The Two Inevitable Burning Questions…

    1. So Is Now Still A Good Time To Buy?  
    2. Is Now A Good Time To Sell?

    I am going to tackle both of these with the same answer:  It depends.  The largest factor in how I answer the question on a case by case scenario is: What is the goal you ultimately want to achieve, and are you operating on a long term plan, or a short term plan.  Then we can dive into the more detailed approach on what makes the most sense for you, and as always what I would do if I were in your shoes.
