Vanguard’s Total Stock Market Index looks like a Tsunami on the rise.

In the five-year period ending December 26, 2016 it swelled 97.61 percent. If $10,000 were invested in the index, just five years ago, it would have grown to $19,761.

That’s just the kind of rise that comes before a crash. Or is it?

    This post was so helpful! I just finished your book & am wanting to switch our IRA’s and 401K to the balanced strategy you suggested but was thinking “Is this the worst time ever to do this!?” Thankfully our IRA stocks are up too so it sounds like we should make the switch ASAP…
