Time to start prediction for when S&P hits 3000 for first time. I'll go with October 10 2018.

Dude thatís not how you play this game. Top us in.

3000 there will be not

Wait, are you saying that the original post was a typo and thorstach meant to say "Top us in"? What does it mean? Buy, sell, hold? Load up on cryptokitties? Someone please interpret the mistyped words of the great thorstach for me!

It is not the bottom. It is not even the bottom of the top. But it is, perhaps, the top of the bottom.

The verbose definition is the endogenous opioid neuropeptides and peptide hormones; most commonly referred to as endorphins.  The exuberance measure is the ratio of endorphins to blood volume.  Endorphins are secreted by the central nervous system and by the pituitary gland.  The pituitary gland is, not surprisingly, located near the topmost part of your body.

That's just a really long way of saying that the top, as measured by exuberance, exists mostly just in your head.

Whatís above us?  Reality?  Or another simulation, making us a simulation within a simulation?  How many levels are above us?  10?  A thousand?

Or are we at the TOP?

That's it.  Top is definitely in when the leprechaun says the pot at the end of the rainbow is filled with Heineken.  Should be at least Guinness, if not gold.

Top is coming. The snow will fall 100 feet deep. The ice wind will howl out the north and the sun hides its face for years and little children will all be born and die in the darkness.

You won't be laughing when a Top Walker rips you limb from limb.

I made it through way too much of that video. My summary:

Pension system top is in, buy REITs, MLPs, Commodities ETFs, and of course His E-Books. Pension fund apocalypse is scheduled for 31OCT2018 latest. Go to a 12%+ dividend strategy now before the elderly take down the entire US financial system!

I made it through about 2 min.  As soon as I heard a predicted date, nah I'm out.  This guy will just do another video in 2 months about the end of the known world coming by January 31st or some crap.  And then again for May, July, Dec etc.. until he's right, or at least right enough to convince a few more fools to buy his book

That guy is apparently the real deal.  But you don't have to worry about it.

The results of my careful analysis are summarized in this chart; coming November 1st:



My track record for correctly predicting zombie/alien/robot apocalypses is unmatched.  Ignore this warning at your own peril!

Global markets, banking, and normal commerce will cease all operations on the day following the crash.  Liquidate all of your assets, while you still can, and send the money to me (you won't need it anyway) to secure your place in your very own luxury stasis chamber on my soon-to-be-completed star liner 1 project, which will be christened, "New Beginnings," at launch.

Elon Musk and Joe Rogan will serve as pilot and co-pilot for the journey, while Snoop Dogg serves as navigator.  Supplies are limited, and positions will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  Don't delay.

Iron-clad money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied within 30 days after the end of the world.  Refund checks will be promptly and cheerfully issued, no questions asked, at any of the many refuse ejection hatches conveniently located along the port and starboard sides of the star liner.

You agree to secure your own transportation and life support upon the termination of your contract, but the orientation pamphlet, normally a $699,999.97 value, is yours to keep; a free gift from me to you, just for trying the service.

Really, you should make your own Mac and Cheese at home.  Cheaper and healthier for you.  Wife smashes hot dogs with a rolling pin.

Nah, my local Kroger affiliate store closed and I scored a lot of $0.17 Annie's organic boxes. I tried putting hot dogs in it once, like a good "raised in the 80s" person and my kids picked them out. I sear they'd starve in an apocalypse.

I thought the top was in when I invested a ton of cash in the market back in 2016. But I did it anyway, making a few hedges against the oncoming crash. Those have all performed miserably and Iím up 18% on my ^VTSAX. Donít even talk to me about how my hedges have done. If the market wants to go down 20%, let it. Even 40%. Iíve been in this long enough.

Sure, the past decade.  Also the past week, and the past century.  Today the market is higher than it has ever been before.  It's a new top, same as the old top. 

The top is dead, love live the top.

So what you're trying to say is...50% unemployment, 90% stock market drop, 100% annual inflation is coming soon, and the selling has just begun? That's how you're supposed to do this right, just read the last few data points, and just listen to the last talking head that you heard on the TV?

And I'm sure you could find pundits saying everything was going to be turning the corner "any day now" all the way to the bottom, just to make it clear that it's not just the permabears that are wrong. :-)

I'm tickled by Robert Wiedemer making the exact same prediction for the last 6 years. I mean, at least vary the numbers a little so people think you aren't just copy-pasting!

Yeah, but the people who were wrong during the crash were wrong for up to 18 months.  The people who were wrong afterward were wrong for up to 100 months.  A lot of the bear predictions were 12 months out.
