Someone help me out here, what are the numbers on the right side of thorstachs chart for?  What is this chart actually charting?  I'm going to have to assume it's the number of times the top got called by thorstach during that period.

It looks like the NASDAQ.

It's a chart! it's a chart, everybody!

I used to think that this thread was hilarious, but after seeing that chart I think I'm on board with thorstach.  Clearly according to the chart he posted, there is nowhere to go other than down.  I mean, it could get up to 9200 but then there's no more room.  Clearly the lines can't go off the upper part of the chart, so it will hit the top and bounce down - hard.  It looks like when it gets to 202 on the right side of the bottom axis we'll be down to 400.  The chart proves it to my satisfaction.

genius.
I'm setting sell orders at 8800 to get out before the top is in.

Quick, someone do a reverse image search and identify the source of the chart, then cross-correlate with likely mmm forum member suspects.

Per Google:

Best guess for this image: screenshot

A screenshot is a digital image of what should be visible on a monitor, television, or other visual output device. A common screenshot is created by the operating system or software running on the device. A screenshot or screen capture may also be created by taking a photo of the screen.

I suspect that the top being in on the market is more likely than the top being in on climate change.

You're not the first to finger sol. But he denies it.

It's not me, but I do think it's a good con job. 

Thorstach has never posted in any other part of the forum.  He (or she) never gives us complete sentences that might reveal an identifiable writing style, and is (IMO) unlikely to be a genuinely unique visitor without another account here, given the tenacity required to keep up with this thread for two years.  He/she has never posted in the mornings, and is mostly active in the late afternoons and evenings.

But alas, 'twas not me who decided to troll the forum.  I suspect one of the lesser-known mods, because they all have the power to identify IP addresses and figure it out pretty quickly.  At this point I'm assuming their collective silence on this one to be complicity.
I don't see how the mods come into it.  This is probably the longest MMM thread without any abuse or other violations.  Mods should only be interested in that they may take interest in a silly thread, but I doubt that posts are getting reported.  They don't have the impetus to be complicit.

Mods can see IPs, and therefore see which two users post from the same IP.  Although one could use a VPN or other obfuscation to hide one's alter-ego, I doubt this joke thread warrants such measures.
And face it, if you were a mod would you be able to resist having a peak behind the curtain?

According to Moon Plus app, here in the Mid-Atlantic we're at 98.7056% of full as I post.

Last Quarter in 5 days, 22 hours, New Moon to follow in 12 days, 20 hours. Fear is back. Werewolves everywhere.

Do werewolves have a +- percentage range of full where (were?) they call it full and are active.
If it only presents at exactly 100% then it would be a second or so of werewolfyness.

I just did the math, and 8% of my total posts are in this thread. Sad?

If that's the case, then you would also only be 100% human for a second or so.  What percentage of bestiality is acceptable when dating a werewolf?

Unless this is an elaborately planned double bluff, that means we have confirmation that whoever is playing thorstach is somewhere in the east coast time zone.

Like April this year? A guy at my work pulled out all his stocks about 3 days before the first plummet. He's convinced we're going into a tailspin. I keep thinking he should really take his lucky break and just buy back in, but sadly I think he's more likely to wait until we're basically recovered again... and probably then some.

Nonsense.  He knew the top was in and got out like any smart person should.  You should cut your losses and sell, too, while there's still time.

If thorstach is good at calling tops, he must be pretty wealthy.  Maybe we can pick him out of a list of billionaires.

I think this is another moment to discuss the nature of thorstache.  We're at about 10% below top, right now.  We've touched correction territory, but are still far from a bear market.  I won't be surprised if we get there, but it doesn't matter either way.

My question is: When thorstache says "Bear Market is in" is he saying that it's coming or that it's arrived?  We have a lot of data points where thorstache has called the top in, but because we know the bear market isn't literally in, could this change our interpretation of the great thorstache?

If we boogie along at an average return, it should take us about a year to recover that 10% drop.

What is this "recover?" We only have down to go from here, as predicted by Thor of Stach.
