In Europe and you think this thing was gonna go negative for the whole month that look like -- for a while reports -- President Obama is planning to unveil a 300 billion dollar jobs package tomorrow.
And a move in Germany by the way that does pave the way for bailing out struggling European nations this helped to bring the bulls back to the market in a big way.
Which is the first sign of a bullish trend.
Kind of desperate for bullish trend here for the long term investors were pleased to have back in a Fox Business exclusive Vanguard Group founder Jack Bogle yeah.
Jack great to have you and and -- on a bullish statement I have to do with superimpose it over yesterday a totally opposite picture.
So again we know that you have been of the belief that you just dollar cost average.
Go into the market be well diversified but is there anything you would change right now knowing what you know -- anticipated what the president might say tomorrow.
Nine I I think we can go too far I think we've pretty much number one know what the president's gonna say tomorrow.
It's not gonna be any big surprise you outlined it very briefly just a moment ago.
And that it to me it's a it's that kind of a crazy speculators market.
In which one day it's the apocalypse.
And the next day it's Nirvana.
And He switch back and forth.
That's what I -- switch and it makes no sense to me and and it's it's speculators.
And -- that -- levels once speculators -- their own money.
And once speculators speculating and speculating on what other speculators are gonna do.
So it's just a speculative market that I think most investors long term investors individual investors are of a better things to do than.
And I guess that what the market's gonna do in the next twenty minutes as you just.
Have said to you before I think list.
The old rule in in times of stress.
Don't just ahead and don't just stand there do something but my rule is I told you before.
The better rule is don't do something just stand there.
Well the global role notwithstanding we do love the vocal role because it it's true when people are panicky around you one of the worst things you can do.
When -- in a panic is make a decision because it's usually the wrong -- however folks that are looking at this crazy market might wonder if they should re allocate.
How would you advise -- that maybe not specific panicky stock picks one where the other other longer short.
But -- reallocate should have funds what would you suggest.
Well the crazy way that this market goes in a reality -- yesterday made you a little more stocks is one thing.
And then the market's way up today see you reallocate with -- more bonds.
Hello must be some limitation to how often you wanna reallocate so I think if you're an asset -- -- and it's not a bad thing to do.
I don't have to do -- myself but you wanna keep say -- 60% 40%.
Stock bond ratio.
And I do it every quarter.
Or when the ratio gets outside -- say stock rate targets outside of say.
At 58 to 62 or 55 to 65 I don't think you should do a daily.
And it requires too much time too much attention and keep you from pick your family in your job much more important you have to situations.
In -- -- market in the stock market.
Would you concede Jack that there is and I'm sometimes I -- this expression but it works here that there may be in new normal that -- It is less of buy and hold for a long time market than it is may be being a little more active in your portfolio now -- days.
Well and not to be disagreeable or the skunk at the garden party but I don't think so and only if you can do the timing right.
And get out when stocks are high and get back in in Nantucket -- -- forget that forget buy and hold.
But if you're investing for a lifetime.
And -- for your retirement.
Ten or twenty years thirty or forty years hands.
You know diesels that jumps on the market ups and -- in the market you know not -- gonna be a footnote to history what could just say.
