S&P 500, 2017 Apr 11:  2,357
S&p 500, 2019 Dec 26:  3,239

2357/3239 = 72.7%
100-72.7=27.3%

But that was THEN. Top is in now. All dollars left in the market are destined to shrivel like the leftover wrappers from a materialistic Christmas, doomed to litter the oceans in emulation of scraps of tattered plastic. Only the detritus of our overconfident spree will tell bedraggled future historians of how we met our fate.

Happy New Year!

Is 28,000 the new norm for the Dow Jones or will it fade away like a flower or an old song and leave you with nothing?

Markets are very stretched and due a correction, maybe a significant one.
I've partially hedged my portfolio by shorting S&P and FTSE100 from this level. Laugh all you want.

Ok, I'm calling it now:  2020 will be the top!  @thorstach will be vindicated, proven a profit.  Thorstach was a mere 4 years early and 37% too soon.

...and if not 2020, definitely 2021.  Or 2022 at the latest.  It's going to happen people, THE TOP IS IN!!!!

I agree, if not by 2022, definitely by around 2025 or sometime shortly, geologically-speaking, after that.  Or thereís a good chance anyway.

To everything
There is a top
And a time to every sector, under heaven
A time to make money, a time to lose money
A time to buy, a time to sell
A time to short, a time to close shorts
A time to laugh, a time to weep

The Decade Top, truly, is in.  Unless you're one of those people who doesn't recognize Year 0.  Then you have a whole extra year.

Since there was no year 0 (dating goes straight from 1 BC to 1 AD) the next decade can either start in 2021 or the first decade AD was only 9 years long.

Personally I prefer to define "decade" as a time period of ~9-10 years.
