Oh nice, as someone who is just starting out I'll greatly appreciate stock discounts

+1

Actually -1, top is in.

Depends on how you look at it. 

Does this mean the bottom is in for Australians?

Good timing for some investing. Sold some property recently so I've dumped 100k into VTSAX over the last three big drops.

I sold 1200 shares of VTI at close, down 3.7% from the peak, err I mean the top.
 About 11% of my stock Market assets, If I had more time, I might have sold some VTSAX.
This made me decide to get my AA more in line for an almost 63 year old.

I'm trying to not change my DCA plan in response to dips, just like I try not to change it in response to spikes.  The whole point is to invest what you can regularly regardless of market conditions.  Could go up, could go down, in either case you should be investing regularly.

Are you sure this time?

Are you more sure this time than they you were the previous 22 times you've called the top in this thread?

If you're sure this time, can you tell me when to get back in, too?

Does the mother of all tops give birth to future tops as well?  With a big enough top family, the top could always be in!

Market commentary: I predict a "Rocky Top" in which the market will experience a series of ups and downs within a tight range in a month-long period, followed by going winless in conference play.

Just a coincidence is all. Just sold the property and cleared the check. Convenient!

The headlines today are great:

"Dow plunges 665 points as stocks post worst week in 2 years"
"It might be time for some investors to take cover"
"Stock plunge may not end until interest rates stop going up"
"If the S&P 500 drops below this level, traders will start to get really worried"
"Volatile enough? Wall Street's fear gauge on track for largest weekly rise in 5 months "

It's amazing how quickly commentators latch on to hysteria.

And they were not saying these things a month ago, when the market was still lower than it is now. So confuse.

Hmm, sounds like something someone with secret double-lives would say...

On the other hand, I have the feeling you'd have made the posts more interesting than "top is in" for like the last 10 times or so

Now excuse me while I hunt for some change in the cushions so I can throw a few extra bucks in market before we get a new top.  Thorstach did jinx it after all.

The only time a CNBC commentator is going to advise you to sell is when the stock is already plummeting.  They're so used to bulls that when the market stops to catch its breath they have no fucking clue what to say.

The rate of change of the rate of change of the rate of change of upward progress towards real arbitrage-neutral pareto-optimized COLA rates of neo-classical meltup is increasing at a heretofore unforeseen, momentous if you will, rate, per unit of trailing 5 week altcoin median bid/ask spread. The charts don't lie.

Clear as day folks, the top has been in for some time now. Wake up sheeple.

If you can't see this, and didn't see this coming, honestly you're just not paying attention at this point:

Disappointed Thorstash hasn't popped in to to give us an update today.  Is the top in?

Come on the top was in two days ago.  Two huge drops now.  We missed the top.

Well, luckily there's still Bitcoin.

Not only am I selling ALL my VTSAX to plow into Bitcoin, I'm getting a HELOC equal to all the equity in my house to do the same.  Can't lose!!!
Don't forget to borrow heavily from your 401(k). Otherwise you are just leaving money on the table.

Bitcoin is a waste of time.  I'm putting my home on the blockchain


These two posts and a few others really gave me a laugh today on a bit of a rough day, having missed the top and all you know, so thanks y'all

I got a little bit of cash sloshing around in retirement accounts.. think I might roll that into VTSAX today.

I sold 1200 shares of VTI at close, down 3.7% from the peak, err I mean the top.
 About 11% of my stock Market assets, If I had more time, I might have sold some VTSAX.
This made me decide to get my AA more in line for an almost 63 year old.

What AA you aiming for out of interest?

 I'm aimimg for less stock exposure, but don't want bonds.
I might end up holding cash for a while. But I do like the REIT preferreds
as a proxy for bonds, especially after the hit they have taken lately.
Although, I'm not sure it is over for them, with expected interest rate increases.
At the end of 2017 I had,
83% stocks, VTSAX, VTI, Several REITs or Preferred REITs.
 9% land contract paying me 8%
2.7% bond fund
 5% cash, some of this is cash and some is business inventory.

I've done some additional analysis and consulted experts. It seems clear we're near a level 8 S-Class meltup, likely to be followed by a fade from the high top.

Do you have any DCF analysis to back this kind of claim up?
