Now that the numbers are good, this could be the time to move money to a more stable account.

 "You don't' want to make a pessimistic action when things look bad. If anything, you want to take advantage of pessimism. And you don't want to follow the crowd into euphoria when things look very good," advises Fred Russell of Frederic Russell Investment Management.
