After today's drop, the S&P 500 is all the way down to valuations not seen since May of 2020.

That's like a whole catastrophe APOCALYPSE or two ago!

Off topic: I just realized today that my stash has gotten big enough that on days like today I can lose as much money in a day as I was making in a whole year eight years ago ... and not even notice.

How are you not aware of your duty to panic when that happens?  You still have the opportunity to hyperventilate then sell everything if you get on it now.

Just spent almost a month away from internet and saw that my account values have come up nicely. I'm wary though, so pretty sure if not now then soon the top will be in.

It went down, it is still dropping.......


To paraphrase Herman Wouk, Panic!, in times of danger or in doubt run in circles scream and shout....... or channel Jack Bogle and just do nothing...   I  prefer the later..and the top is still not in.

and it's still dropping

We need a nice, monstrous, five-year sale on stocks. Top, my friend, hope you were in.

might actually get my wish!

Looking more and more likely...

hear, hear!

I had two put options on $SPY, but--since top was in--one of them finished Tuesday out of the money, so now I just have one.

6 July 2020 NASDAQ closed at 10,433.65.     HOO YAA NASDAQ 10,433.65!  Bottom obviously is not in, is it the TOP?   Probably not!

flashed the golden cross

It's been a while since I heard a new naughty phrase, but I'm pretty sure this must be one. I'm now trying to imagine what it means.

Quote
meaning the Bear Market is over......

I'm not the smartest person in the world, clearly, but I'm seeing global pandemic-induced economic contraction combined with happy stock markets, and I can only conclude that at least one of the rest of the world and I is/are/am hopelessly insane.


I guess the most secure conclusion I can take away from all this is that it's better to have money and/or assets in times of crises than to not.

I've been putting off a six figure account rollover for a while because of TOP IS IN.

Maybe I should just do it and hopefully not lose 5% (like I did last time I did a rollover >.>).

Be sure to check the VIX and the XIV before exchanging VTSAX for VTI.

Yes, but those don't have graphs, so they're complete nonsense. Technical analysis has graphs so there is definitely something to it.  Just as an example, I know what the market's going to do over the next 4 months:

People...the top is not in....

Iíve spent 72 hours in a deep meditation after some wild mushrooms to ask the spirits when the top will REALLY be in.

The top will be in on the 26 September 2020....the spirits say itís so...

This is not the "Top will be in" thread.  Unless those spirits were named "thorstach" they were completely wrong.  Top IS in, and don't you forget it!

@dougules, that is a beautifully crafted graph. Fabulous custom labeling, especially the x axis within the graph. Obviously the "Pap of Doom" is a masterpiece as well.

Could you do one with candles? I really like the graphs with candles.

And cakes with candles, those are pretty nice too.

So it looks like the SP500 closed today higher than it closed on the last day of 2019, but lower than it closed on the first day of 2020. Can we say that it is positive for the year?

This us a super-important question for many reasons that should be very obvious.

Excellent advise. I caught a few sockeye salmon before work this morning. Fighting with a fish in drizzling rain and covered in glacial mud is definitely for ones perspective.

Do you do the salmon fishing where you wade into the giant river with a big net? That seems like pretty top-level fishing. Iíve never done anything fancier than pulling up catfish from a muddy stream.

It was a small stream just inside the tidal area, but yes. The bigger river trip is later this week. I tried the giant river where I normally catch my salmon in June, but the water was high and the run was unusually small. I do not wade into that river... Most people who fall in don't make it back out. But I have experienced the pinnacle of the fishing top there, catching a years supply of Salmon an hour is awesome.
