Was the bottom in, or is this a big bacon bounce?

 *Amazing Picture*

That picture is just beautiful.

if you want to see more amazing meat (I know phrasing) google Nueske's.  As a boatguy I literally travelled around the world many times, and I'm seriously thinking about a trip to wisconson in order to visit Nueskes


Looks like they learned about phrasing too:



The question remains, is the bottom in?

I can see the argument of tightening up during a downturn to throw extra at the market because, it really is above and beyond. A lifestyle that could NOT be sustained for years on end without mental or physical harm but that is harmless in the short term.

I think that's why people don't jump all over it.

(Also the dollar amounts are so negligible, if I cut my entire food budget in HALF *saving 100-200 a MONTH* it wouldn't matter much against the 5,000->9,000 we save monthly. Who cares if its 5k or 5.1k saved that month, my savings rate probably wouldn't change a full % point)

S&P 500 and DJIA coming up on the 50 day moving average today. Nasdaq is already above the 50ma for a few days. Usually the first time SPX and DJIA tests the 50ma it's rejected and goes back down for a little while. We'll see what happens either this week or next.

Meanwhile the 500 day moving average still looks amazing!!  Oh sorry, wrong thread, bottom is still in.

Dip is in, time to starting dipping into cash reserves, if you can bear it.
What kind of dip?  French Onion, seven layer?  It's almost lunch time and I'm hungry.  Need to know what my options are!

I hope we hold this level (or go a little more down) for the next week.  My company pays bonuses 2/15, so my 401k withholding will be normal paycheck plus bonus withholding...would be nice to get a big chunk right here.  If it goes up, oh well...

it looks like my bonus and 2/15 paycheck 401k contributions are going to hit today.  Not the bottom*, but I will take it.

I did forget about my company's 401k match contribution though, which hit 2/12 (3% of total 2017 comp), that was closer to the bottom.*

All together, about $10,000 more little green dudes/dudettes into the stache.

* assuming that was the bottom...if not, oh well.

Where can I get uncut bacon? I want thick bacon.

Also, I feel like I'm getting conflicting information from this thread and the top is in thread.

There is no bottom.  Once the Top is In, the markets will fall forever into eternity.  The S&P will approach but never cross zero.  It's a calculus thing.

Time for the monthly $5k VTSAX contribution.
There is that little devil on the right shoulder whispering "go with VMMXX, go with VMMXX....") while the guy on the left shoulder insisting on "stay put, stay put...".

I've been entertaining myself by reading the popular press market news today.  First it was "Dow snaps losing streak with huge gain at open"and then 30 minutes later it was "market gives up gains in early trading" then "market up, positive note to end a down week" and now we're back to "catastrophic market plunge caps worst week since 2008".

These people clearly have no idea what they're taking about.  Trying to fit a narrative to this sort of volatility is hilarious.  Is it deficit spending, or inflation fears, or white house turmoil, or all of the above on a rotating 15 minutes schedule?
...

Have you ever played Dungeons and Dragons with children?

They'll roll several 3s and 4s in a row and be all like, "My character sucks", then they'll roll a bunch of critical 20s and be all like, "Wow, my Ranger is way better now!"

It's like that.

I think this thread is alive as long as "Top is in" is alive.

Trade wars = price increases due to tarriffs = inflation

I'm not an economist, but wouldn't lowering rates in an inflationary environment make things even worse?  Maybe this is a topic for another thread.

Edit: I did start a new thread.

I kind of hope we end up off 20% so it'll put an end to all the "Long in the tooth" and "2nd Longest Bull Market Evvaaahhhh!" articles in the media. Tired of reading that crap.

20% won't do it.  The Nasdaq was down 23.89% in December 2018 from its August high.  The Nasdaq was down 19.53% in 2016 (from July '15 highs).

Maybe I’m whooshing but wouldn’t that post be indicative of the bottom?  Capitulation=bottom and complacency=top?
