The S&P 500 Has Risen 100 Points In 3 Weeks

One of the nice things about switching our portfolio to ETFs is that I can do my weekly update on Friday at 2PM when the market closes instead of having to wait until the next day to get the latest e-Series unit values. While doing that I noticed that the S&P 500 closed at $1,633 today, and it was at $1,537 on the week of April 19th. That means it has gone up by nearly $100 over those 3 weeks.

Although the market can be quiet most of the time and dangerous at other times, things like this also happen regularly. A lot of the long-term returns seem to come over a few short periods. Those who try to time the market can easily miss out on moves like this.
