The top is NOT in.. Wahahhahahaha!!!!!

Wrong thread.  This thread is for fun.

As a quick update to my earlier numbers... at this point my gains (not including my own contributions) are over $100K since this thread began in April.

Given the other numbers that were thrown out in September when we first started tallying gains, I think it's safe to assume posters in this thread have gained over $1 million since the start of this thread (unless of course they took the OP seriously).

Doesn't Congress need to reconcile the House and Senate versions in conference, then actually pass identical bills?

In other news: Top is in!

I think everyone expects the House to just vote on (and pass) the Senate bill as-is.  They won't try to change it, for fear of derailing the process.  No reconciliation necessary.  The Senate bill will become law.  The House bill was just for practice, and doesn't actually mean anything.

Agree.  Furthermore, the house bill passed with more votes than needed; they can afford to lose a few representatives.  Not many, but a few.  There's just no wriggle room to lose support in the Senate version.

If I was thorstach I'd post here every once in a while just to see how long I could keep the thread going. Did you ever see those experiments with lab rats where they get one reward every 1000 presses on the lever? It's just enough to keep the rat busy.

Could this thread have possibly achieved an escape velocity without Thorstach? Will he transition into some type of Satoshi Nakamoto figure, where--in several years when the SP is up above 4,000--people aren't even sure he ever existed?

Over/Under for Monday the Dow going up 400 points. Place your bets.
I may have overestimated. Looking like a 200-250 point range gain for the Dow.

Among other things, why are you paying attention to the Dow instead of the S&P 500.

I know the S&P is the real index to watch but the Dow is such a nice fun number to look at and it does have decent correlation.

Correlation with what?  Or am I supposed to ask?

OMG - UBS analyst predicts 25% market gains in 2018 due to "tax fueled growth". 
I love how a failure to pass the tax bill will result in a tumble of prices because they are already 'baked in', but passage will result in a dramatic increase.  Double accounting anyone?

Have we hit  irrational exuberance yet?

similar chart(s) to the one Sol generated.

"There were at least four times this year where one could have made a compelling case that it was wise to reduce risk. But most people don’t reduce risk. They’re all in or they’re all out. And you can only do to so many times before your brain turns into actual mush. Sure, this could be the top, but it’s always good to remind yourself that every time stocks fall a little, it feels like they’re going to fall a lot, even if we know they usually don’t."

case in point, so far we are 0/4 this year....

The top is in for Dutch tulips.  It's been in since 1637.

Good call, better stock up while prices are low!!  $10k tulips are just around the corner!

To be fair, I thought the top was in when it hit $5,500.  Astounded it's gone this high this fast and many people think the party won't end.  Maybe it'll hit $30k first, but it will drop like a rock soon.
