***BTW, I usually "cash out" money just to pay taxes. So total value is all pre-tax. Going forward, I'll be cashing out to pay the rent also - no slack in the system for hookers and booze, that will have to wait for later in the commodity bull :)

I'm staying long, but very cautiously moving forward here. Are you concerned about the value of the dollar increasing in the short run here? I'm afraid that even though it will be a slow climb that people will likely overreact and there may be a large selloff heading our way. Or maybe not. Are fundamentals so strong that we can avoid a major down turn? These are the thoughts that trouble me now...

It's a risk for sure - we definitely could have a dollar rally. In fact, I wouldn't mind seeing one, so that we can grab the other side of the trade.

I'm with you, think cautious is probably wise at this juncture.
