Top is in

S&P 500 is up 8.97% since your OP.

NASDAQ is up 12.27% since your OP.

You lose.

Have you not been playing along?  Every new call of the top automatically negates all of the previous calls of the top.  If you call the top every day, one day you will be (temporarily) correct.

So the real genius in thostach's thread isn't in the days he calls the top, it's in all of the days he doesn't.  Just look at all of the tops we've passed since he last called the top!  It takes real market insight to NOT call the top at any of those false tops.

I'm beginning to think Thorstach is just another member moonlighting as an amateur stock analyst for our amusement. Either way, thank you Thorstach. Best thread on the forum for a while now.

Maybe thorstach is our market timing id trying to undermine our buy and hold ego.

The top is in, on the street
Inside your head, on every beat
And the beat's so loud, deep inside
The pressure's high, just to stay alive
'Cause the top is in

Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
Caught up in the action I've been looking out for you
Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)
The top is in, the top is in, the top is in,
Oh it's on the street, the TOP IS IN!

People who agree with other people in this thread should add the word "Tops" after. Also, we should go sequentially starting from you.

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous market timing predicutions
Or to take arms against a sea of foolish prognostications,
And by opposing end them.
To buy high - to sell low - no more;
And by this to say we end the heartache
through simple buy and hold investing practices
ay, there's the rub!
For in that dreams of early retirement may come true

Gosh, this thread keeps getting me to check VTI charts. Like, at least every week!  Madness!

I guess the good part is that I found out I gained more in the market today than my salary for the week...

Indeed, however, one day he/ she/ they will stop calling the top, they will go 100% equity with max leveraged margin loans..... and then......

.....then....

Well who the frig knows, the market might keep climbing.

Best just not try and time the market. Monthly salary this week will be deployed as per normal.

"Buffett Indicator" is calling a top
https://dailyreckoning.com/buffetts-indicator-calling-tops/

Some interesting points.
The majority of my portfolio remains 'mindless' index funds. My own 'thoughtfully-chosen' investments have outperformed S&P by a few %, not hugely.

Over a longer term it will be interesting if there is a return to mean for market cap vs. GDP and a number of the other 'stretched' valuation indicators. I think it is 'different this time' to an extent due to the global CB activity including artificially low interest rates and equity/debt purchases....
