Watch out for that first Top, itís a doozie

There is no first, there is only "only" when it comes to Top.

Watch out for Top, it's a doozie.
Yeah, but everyone remembers their first Top.

It was exciting but over way too quickly.

Premature Top is In.

I determined that the top was in, but it was early. It was a premature evaluation.

I was dreaming about the Top last night, it was a nocturnal envision.

If the Top lasts more than four hours, seek medical attention.

I'm tired of being on top, but this market wants another go around.  Hand me one of those blue pills, would you?

CNN Fear & Greed flipped from "fear" to "greed" over past 2 weeks... S&P 500 "relative strength" is borderline oversold.  The S&P 500 keeps peaking near a similar point... roughly where it is now.  I think I'm going to spend 1-2 months waiting for the market to realize... the top is in.

This is an intriguing side gig idea. Set up the site to have links and summaries to a long list of financial doom articles with a timeline, sort of like the web3isgoinggreat.com design. A cursory view would reveal that the top is in, but upon deeper inspection, people will learn what it means to say the top was in.

And if it doesn't work out, you could probably sell the domain to the porn industry.

I think the porn industry might prefer TopIsOut

Just get the timing right. Make sure you sell everything when the tippy top is pointy pointy and buy back in when the bottom is down and round.

The video is pretty funny. However, this song makes so little sense as Mustacian. Several years ago a couple of DW's friends started a "what would you do with a million dollars" conversation. After a bit DW volunteered "invest it in index funds and live off 4%". Apparently that's not the expected answer...

Longer term CDs Top is in.

This can only mean the bottom is in for CDs, because I remember the days when people used to throw around obsolete vinyl records and make art projects out of them. Now it's like a scavenger hunt to find originals that aren't scratched up and Target is selling LPs for $25 each.

Homer had it all figured out.  Sure the bacon cost $27, yielding only $0.63 in grease, but Marge paid for that.

My wife worked for people like that.   Literally.  They owned a concrete factory that they had inherited. 

One of them would sneak onto the factory grounds and steal a $20,000 piece of equipment and sell it for $1,000, and be happy because they make $1,000 their brothers didn't.    Apparently, several of them were like this.

The wife of one of them died working out in their garden at home.  They called the factory manager to come over and take care of it.  He couldn't be bothered.

They were walking human scum and the only reason for their success was that they inherited it.   Just checked and the factory has been renamed, so probably sold off.

Sounds like their top was in when they inherited!
