When on the next trading day should appear
A historical rally into the new year.
The Dow surged over a thousand—so lively and quick!
But they doubted it would last, if this uptick would stick.
More rapid than eagles the rally it came
The bulls came charging, for they had ground to reclaim.
Now 22,000, now 23 and 24!
On 25,000–it continued to soar!
Those who got out were left in the dust
Like deer in the headlights, their accounts had gone bust.
If only they stayed and ignored the headlines
They wouldn’t have stepped on the investing landmines.
The worst Christmas Eve ever—2018.
Just a red blip in the charts of stock market green.
The lesson we learned is forget all the noise
If you want to build wealth, you need to have poise.
There’s always bad news, always reason to worry,
But the future is bright—even though it is blurry.
These lessons are hard, despite being trite
So, “Happy investing to all, and to all a good night!”
