This is not a meme, dad.

Well not all of us can retire at 12.
If you donít have majority stakes in a dozen YouTube channels by age 10, you will likely never amount to anything.

Amounting is overrated

Wait, is YouTube still a thing? I thought all the kids were on TikTok now.

So by my count the S&P 500 is back where it was on August 25. That is like 56 whole days. There havenít been any crazy market swings in the meantime (did I miss any? I sometimes go weeks without reading the financial news).

Is the fear back? Is VIX breaking down? Is XIV over 15?

Things are boring! Iím ready for the top to be in again!

If the top canít be in, could we at least have a little 10-15% correction so people can lose their minds? Those are entertaining too.

Top is in confirmed. I just put $50k in the market (new funds from home sale), at the peak high value of Tuesday. It's all downhill from here.

Saw today on the news headlines tonight that the NASDAQ and S&P 500 just posted their single worst day since September (almost four weeks ago).

I knew the top was in but unprecedented results like this really drive it home, you know?

Just look at it's chart... Over the past year we've deviated from the historical average return by almost two percent! Clearly this time is different.

Nothing? The sky is falling and Top is in is not in my list of new replies. Let’s GO!!


Stock market should be at 0 within a few weeks at this rate! Coronavirus is taking over, TP is flying off the shelves, there are elections happening all over the world, and Jack Ma is richer than the Walton Family. Does no one care anymore!?

I request memes! Or at least a witty joke or something.

I only look at the market on the 30th of every month. So today the top is both infinite and zero.

Every once in a while someone comes on here bloviating about how this thread won't be so active as soon as we get a little downturn. I always make some sarcastic comment in my head about naive noobs.

Well today, on a big bad down day, this thread is pretty quiet. I just don't think we care anymore. We're not bummed out by down days, we're not excited by them either. We just don't care anymore.

https://youtu.be/xLpfbcXTeo8

And don't even get me started on @thorstach. Who cares?

Yipes! I didn't even realize today was a big down day until I read your comment solon (in fairness I was locked in a work event almost all day).

Yes, after the big and fast drop this past spring, individual days like this just don't get the heart pumping in the same way. Now if we open limit down a couple of days running again, that would be different. I should probably go work on some memes or something just in case that happens.

Oh, sure, @thorstach returns to try to steal my thunder. I think I have supplanted him as calling the top by my investing new funds at the TOP of the past week.

If I'd checked this thread last night I could have bought some options... Since I started reading this thread the mighty thorstach has a perfect record.

As I write, S&P is at 3271. No rebound yet! You can still get on the Thorstach train. You have plenty of options (pun intended).

Perfect record: still in play!

But if it keeps dropping 15 points every half hour the S&P 500 will hit zero within less than seven weeks.

You're welcome, everyone - I pulled some cash out of the market to put down on my house, and the next day (when the sell order went through, of course) the market dropped.  My bad!

My net worth dropped the equivalent of 3 weeks salary. We're doomed.
