Naturally blue corn chips are blue because they are aflatoxin flavored.  Not recommended.



A regular diet including apiaceous vegetables, such as carrots, parsnips, celery, and parsley may reduce the carcinogenic effects of aflatoxin

I feel like this entire corn discussion is being promoted by Wall Street insiders trying to distract us from the fact that THE TOP IS IN!!!!

No no no, you're missing the point. The top is in for corn. It's all downhill since summer 2016. It's the only possible interpretation of the data.

Sounds like the the utility of doing cocaine to reduce the potential of heroin to depress heart function and cause death. We already know how such a combination worked out for John Belushi and his speedball approach to balancing the dangers of a toxin.

S&P has broken through the 50 day MA and is heading for the 20. Godspeed, Mustachians!

The market rejected the 20 day moving average and slammed down hard (back to the 50DMA).

How often does the S&P 500 have a sharp correction and rebound making a sharp V bottom and then continue to climb like nothing happened?  Extremely rarely.  The correction isn't over yet.  It's the eye of the storm.

I mean, if we're drawing lines on charts, see below.  Looks like we are right where we should be.  Top is in.

Dragon, could you update to reflect today's returns? I need to know whether to sell it all and get bitcoin or if the bottom is in. Thanks.

The mother of all tops is in.

Since this post:

-S&P500 is down 1.371%
-NASDAQ is up 0.297%
-DOW is down 2.082%

Yes, quite the mother of all tops.

Yet V bottoms have been a staple of this post-2008 bull market. Rare before that, common these days.

If there's one thing I've learned about librarians, it's that you don't want to threaten their books. Or call them a monkey. Or else your personal top may be in.

T-tops are fun, but they leak. I'll keep my removable sunroof.

The weather has been cold lately, so I'd keep my t-tops in if I had them.

I'll second that.  Always test-drive a car with a sunroof, t-top or a convertible in the rain (or take it through a car wash).  Many Tops ago I had a car with a removable roof that turned out to have the mother of all leaks when it rained.  Should have test drove it in the rain instead of the middle of a hot summer only to find this out several months later.

Thats interesting, if its longer than the 4% Rule thread maybe this thread is FI.  Factually independent.  This thread needs no outside facts to support itself.  It just has to regurgitate 4% of its posts and memes each year to be self-sustaining

I'd rather wait til we pay off our mortgage and then stick to 3.5% just to be safe, given that we're near the top of 10-page cyclically adjusted posts to earnings ratio (a.k.a. thorstach P/E)

That might be the safe route, but I feel that not paying off my mortgage and dumping all my time and posts into this thread is still the best option, historically speaking.

The mother of all tops is in.

We have no recovered from the mother of all tops (across all indexes) in less than 24 days and less than 15 trading days.

You lose.  Again.
