I can't even see my screen through all these tears of joy.  Top is in.

Is it a new all-time high for the S&P500 today?

Well, thorstach still called it back on day one, 65 pages ago.  His timing was just a little off.

(Then he called it again approximately every three months for the next two years.  He's bound to be right eventually.)

A confirmed downtrend from all time highs is anything but noise, fellow. Anyway, there goes support and VXX breakout going into a long weekend.

If you're not going to put your money where your mouth is, at least add your concrete prediction to this thread so we can all laugh at how bad it is. (along with all the others too, including mine, so there won't be any reason to feel bad about being wrong)  And hey, maybe you'll actually be right!  Stranger things have happened.


https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/investor-alley/calling-the-top/


Mine is not a prediction but an analysis based on facts and charts to conclude that we have already seen the top of this bull rally. Posting in that thread would be "cheating" since i've made the call after the fact.

wait....what?

You metaphorical workers are literally making me happy not to have a job!

To be clear, the job was hypothetical

Top has returned.

Haven't we gotten any dividends since the last top?

Maybe instead of calling the GOAT MOAT, he meant to call the Greatest of All Time, Finally Usurping the Current King, Equity Rally.

"When the Top was first built, there was a man born inside who had the ability to change whatever he wanted, to remake the Top as he saw fit. It was he who freed the first of us, taught us the truth - As long as the Top exists, the human race will never be free. After he died, the Oracle prophesied his return and that his coming would hail the destruction of the Top, end the war, bring freedom to our people. That is why there are those who have spent our entire lives searching the Top looking for him."

There once was a GOAT they called Billy
Whose swimming style was very silly
He jumped in a MOAT
But his top didn't float
So the only thing dry was his leg

Not sure, but the words from an old song have been wandering into my brain.  How do they go?

"Hike up your skirt a little more, and show the Top to me!" 


I think that's how the hemline index works.

Sol's departure was not yet priced into the markets.  Forward looking guidance is tanking.  VIX above 11.  Fear is back.

So, in the countryside your "friend" burninates, "stache" and "thatch" don't rhyme? Because they do in my countryside.

As they were in 2007. The market is forward looking, so today's earnings are priced in and not relevant.

I do not know enough about the US market to comment on forward earnings, but here in Australia it has turned very much into a stock specific market (more so than usual). The rising tide is not lifting all boats in any sense.

Do not try and predict the top, for that is impossible.  Instead, realize the obviousness of the truth.
What truth?   There is no top.
