Portfolio still doing fantastic this year.

It's a bubble dude!!!!!!!!!!

hahahahaha   I am just joking, because as you likely realize, billydingdong, I don't know much of anything regarding various market's or their short term direction, and of course, I have some stake in various funds that are either related to a 401k that i have and some other investments that are vary similar, but tend to be various kinds of index funds.

In about mid-2016, I was thinking the same thing...  "it's a bubble", and I ended up reallocating in a way that removed some of the value from my stock investments and placed that value into safer and more stable areas, such as bonds.  That reallocation has not worked out too well for me over the past 3.5 years or so, because the stock portion has continued to go up and up and up, and the bonds largely had remained flat (safe but flat... hahahahahaha).  

Now my BTC investment, that is a totally different story.  You can imagine how that has done since mid 2016, can't you?  If not, it pretty much out performed and dwarft any stagnant aspect of my mid-2016 reallocation in such a way that I hardly gave any shits about some of the performance that I did not get in the stock market.  In other words, my stock market allocation does remain pretty similar as it had been after my 2016 reallocation, and I can generally see the representation in the various funds that are contained in my 401k options and how they are performing from year to year.  They are at all time high levels, like you said, but for some reason, I still have some difficulties getting very excited about them, and just hope that they kind of continue to hold their own in the coming years.  We will see, won't we?  Are you considering any reallocation away from stocks based on recently past great performance, or are you just letting your current allocations ride, for now?
