6. I'm just saying the recent all time high is remarkable

The COVID bounce, due to all the liquidity added to the fuel. I cannot assume the landscape will be as robust going forward, in other words, the worst case scenario from investing in 2008 cannot be assumed to apply going forward now, we just don't know. Could be better, could be worse. I remember the 1970s, and while I was too young to understand what was going on financially, and the data made available now doesn't often go back that far, the market was struggling with lowered expectations and slower dividend growth. Those can whack the best hopes as we all know. Wage growth may mitigate that with higher spending, or make it worse with more inflation. It's a much different economy.
