Sensex at 19K: What to do now??

Who would have believed if somebody said that sensex would close at 19K 4 days ago. But that is exactly what has happened. Sensex closed above 19K today to close at 19058.67!! But what should people like you and me do at this point? Should we invest more in
stock markets at this point or sell or adopt a wait and watch policy. I think it is a good time to take a long and hard look at your portfolio. Stocks that have given you consistent returns need to seperated from the ones that have been rolling just in this bull market. Now the risks are a lot higher so you need to careful and not over invest. I think profit booking to some extent, atleast the trading bets, would be a good idea. Who said stock trading or investment was easy?
