Stocks ended a historic run of 12 straight winning sessions on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, tying the mark set in January of 1987, finishing the month of February on a dour note, though overall, stocks were fantastic for the month and so far in 2017.
With a possible March rate hike still two weeks away, there's still plenty of time to jump upon the Wall Street bandwagon. Since stocks apparently have no downside, more money will be pumped into the market by the almighty algos, probably beginning on March 1.
The old adage, "don't fight the tape," is in play as fundamentals have been tossed to the curb in favor of momentum-chasing. Stocks should continue to climb until they don't.
