Final, huh? Does that mean the previous tops were just practice?

I look at it this way.. My 17 years worth* of VBTLX is now probably 17.5 years.

Note I don't know if VBTLX has gone up in value.. I'm just assuming it has and I'm too lazy to log on and check..:)

* If I had to live just on the bonds we have they would last 17 years at the current spend rate.

The Oracle has spoken. And the markets respond. The Dow is up a bit today.

I wonder if Jerome Powell will start discussing  Thorstach?

And I note the markets went up again after the declaration. And this "top" was well below the September 12 actual recent high...

Not a new top though. We haven't had a new top in months. The charts clearly say run and hide.

Yikes, a 1.5% WR, sounds pretty risky.  What if there was a 90% correction and companies stopped paying dividends for the next 60 years?  Certainly thatís whatís going to happen if The Top Is In this time.   :)

I agree, its walking far to close to the edge!... Thats why we will have a positive savings rate when both our pensions kick in in 4 years..

I think we might even be truly FI at that point..:)

I got a kick out of this as it describes us. Weíre blessed to be in a traditional pension situation and given frugal habits, we might have a positive savings rate. And I doubt Iíll give up working after ďretirementĒ in any case.

Yes, Zero.  As long as it never recovers

And that's the best time to buy, since you can buy an infinite number of stocks for $0!

Top is a proper noun. You need to capitalize it to show respect. This is a warning, next time you be kicked out of the Church.

But if youíre standing on the Top of the Church, doesnít that make you the new Top?  In which case you get to be the head of the Church and declare that the new Top is in?

... thrown off the Top of the Church.

I'm sorry, don't we all just call that a dead cat bounce baptism*? You guys don't even know the proper jargon, are you sure you belong to this Church? I'm gonna need to see your records, and have you recite the creed.

*As you know and as is laid out in the sacred texts, the initiate chants "My Th*rst*ch, my Th*rst*ch, there is no top!" Then you get thrown off, you bounce like a dead cat but inevitably fail to breakout past the previous top, and then you come to believe. It's all laid out in the Analytic Technica chapter 3 verse 16.
