it looks like noise if you do not know classic support and resistance. it went down to the 200 mda and bounced up to the 50 and made 3 attempts to breakthrough that ressitance and has now failed, so we are going back down to test the lows again.

now, given the talk of raising rates over the past few weeks, you wanted to be cautious but now with both the fed and boj talking about reducing qe wijich is scheduled in april to start and trump's tariff talk and raising rates; you can expect more downside. all of those will have to be reversed for new highs now.

not calling for a recession but for stocks, having everything in stocks or an index now is a bad idea.

I can't wait for your post about how you were able to take advantage of this super obvious information and make your billions.

Is there a way to subscribe to a certain user so I don't miss that write up?

Personally I don't mind a dip in March, but it would be hilarious to see a new top exactly on this threads one year anniversary in April

This thread exists outside of time. It has no beginning and no end. Oh, and the top is always in.

A circle is a simple closed shape. It is the set of all points in a plane that are at a given distance from a given point, the centre; equivalently it is the curve traced out by a point that moves so that its distance from a given point is constant. The distance between any of the points and the centre is called the radius.

Looking up Flat Circles I came across this...



"Your first crochet round with the adjustable magic loop, also known as the magic circle or ring. Crocheting a flat circle of any size can be done with the help of a very simple and predictable formula.—"

This formula could be used to explain and predict when the "Top is In!"

I mean, LOOK at all the MAJOR crap that went down throughout history.  Holding stocks was clearly the wrong move!!! [/sarcasm]

Haha I see this thread as an Onion article where people comment on it as if it isn't satire /should be viewed as satire

Seems we still haven't recovered from Y2K!

I know we're not supposed to market time, but index funds are boring as shit. We fuck around with our Roth contributions just for fun. 2017 and 2018 for each of us have just been deployed into the market from their standby positions in cash. Pease note that we are FI, I am FIRE, and this $26k "gamble" is less than a drop in our actual bucket. We know it's bad to market time, but it's the only fun we allow ourselves in the market. Whee! Look ma, no hands!

At the risk of jinxing my own track record, I will provide a quick explanation as to why no one posted for three days based on empirical observation:

Because someone (not saying whom, but someone) actually called the local top and the local bottom. On the plus side, now we know how this thread will finally die: as soon as someone called the major top/bottom.

Enjoy.

So basically... we each take turns randomly calling the top and bottom; then when one of us is finally right he or she or it gets crowned the winner?

Seems sound.

You can calculate each person's right/wrong call ratio if you prefer, or even add other variables such as # of calls made total, the tools are ready-made, just take them from sports stats analytics. There are people who can time (better than chance), and there are people who can't time (worse than chance). Just like there are people who can shoot hoops better than others.

The crowd often makes the mistake of grouping them in the same category and say "omg on average the chances of anyone getting things right are below 50%!!!"

Yes, we can't always tell who's whom at first glance, but the clues are there, if you know where to look. Think of it as talent scouts and drafters.

Top is in!   Run!

http://money.cnn.com/2018/03/08/investing/jpmorgan-market-correction/index.html

"Daniel Pinto, JPMorgan's co-president, said during an interview on Bloomberg Television Thursday that he believes market gains should continue for the next year or two."


"He said it's normal for there to be a correction at the end of an investing cycle, and that markets could be heading for a "deep correction" of between 20% and 40%, depending upon the market values at the time the downturn starts."

So essentially.... the market could go up 20-40% followed by going down by 20-40%? Sounds scary. I hope he lets us know at what point the top is in.

I may be mistaken, but isn't a correction about 10%, and 20-40% is essentially a crash?

In fact, looking it up real quick, a 20-40% drop would be catastrophic. That's Black Monday and Great Recession territory. "Deep correction" my ass.

LOL, no one is saying it has to happen in a day.

We had a ~20% pullback in 2016, that most people don't even remember. Do you remember a catastrophic Black Monday panic?

catastrophic?
If it goes up 40% then drops 20% its only "catastrophic" to those that are pulling out of the market now.

Who benefits from this kind of talk? maybe people who make money off people trading? Like J P Morgan. ho hum.

And in today's weather, summer is shaping to to be warmer than winter, but there could be a cooling trend in the fall.

Munger would be a great name for that cat!
