I think it's inhumane to sell bears.

If you sell a bear in the woods and no one hears it, does the market drop?

If you drop a bear in the woods, does it dead cat bear bounce?

I think this is another moment to discuss the nature of thorstache.  We're at about 10% below top, right now.  We've touched correction territory, but are still far from a bear market.  I won't be surprised if we get there, but it doesn't matter either way.

My question is: When thorstache says "Bear Market is in" is he saying that it's coming or that it's arrived?  We have a lot of data points where thorstache has called the top in, but because we know the bear market isn't literally in, could this change our interpretation of the great thorstache?

Heretic!  thorstach has been correct in each of his numerous predictions, and is correct that the prophesied bear has arrived.  Just because you don't see the bear doesn't mean it's not right in front of you.  Have some faith!

At the risk of presuming to speak for all readers of this thread, I don't think anyone would trust the credibility of such a thread, unless it was started by @thorstach himself.

I absolutely cannot wait for @thorstach to one day start a "bottom is in" thread.  Of course we might all be dead by then, you know with the Top being in and all

The tea leaf pattern was auspicious this morning. It clearly means that vital things must be done in a certain way at a certain time and before another time.
 Also, the moon.

"Top is In" by definition means the market can never again go above that level. 2941 will be the S & P "Top" for eternity.

You can speak for me, this was my very first thought on the matter.

I do wonder though, how would one call the bottom? I assume we are headed for 0 eventually, perhaps thorstach will let us know ahead of time when the 0 is coming?

Are you so naive that you believe that zero is the bottom?  We can go far lower than that!  TOP IS IN.

Does this mean that actual human beings might be able to afford to live in Seattle at some point in the not too distant future?

Is it weird that I really like that layout?  I could make that plus a small living room/kitchen and a bike shed work I think.

The Dow is up 4% in two days.  Is the bottom in yet?  Or is the top in again and we're supposed to be headed back down now?  I can never keep track.

Fortunately, I'm an index investor and I don't have to keep track.

I just saw this video about demographics and the economy.  It told me that the baby boomers are going whole hog into retirement.  In order to get money to live, they are selling their equities driving stock market prices down.  This thing already happened to Japan.  The retirement 401k's have artificially driven the price of equities up.  Retired people spend less, this slows the economy and drives equity prices down.  The younger millennials and generation X people have debt up the yazoo due to education.  They can't keep the equity prices up.  In addition, the pay they get is less in real dollars. so they can't invest in equities to keep the price up.

It made a lot of sense.

Yep, the time has come.  The chicken du du has hit the fan.  Enjoy the ride down.
