Doh!  My brain is definitely a long way off the top today.  Note to self - all songs about California are not the same song.

@MrDelane


I'm not saying it's not possible, just that for the vast majority (myself included) it is not the best idea.

And I agree with you 100%. Most people will be better off if they stay away from timing the market. Ignore what the market is doing, don't even check, just contribute to their retirement accounts (50% net pay) every two weeks. Repeat this for 20+ years, that's the simplest path to ER.

I did that, then I hit FIRE and had all the time in the world to do w/e I please. As I expended my circle of competence slowly I came to the realization the game is indeed rigged. Not about how the market is manipulated, but the fact that it becomes so much easier to further your knowledge and improve yourself in FIRE.

Hokey pokey is a flavour of ice cream in New Zealand, consisting of plain vanilla ice cream with small, solid lumps of honeycomb toffee made by the Tip Top company.... This must be a sign "The Top is In!"

Any thread with its own ice cream flavor must have hit its top.

Except that this one clearly needs some strawberry topping!

You know, there was a time when I thought this whole 'top' thread had run it's course, that there couldn't possibly be anything else top-related that could be posted here. Tip top hokey pokey ice cream from New Zealand. I'm not worthy.

That's funny, I read this on my phone and scrolled down to this comment slightly zoomed-in so that I could read the text better, but it cut off the little column that has the profile of the poster in it, and as I was reading this I was like wait, is thorstach back?, sees "filling in for Thorstach", darn an impersonator!

Yeah, but even a broken clock is still right twice a day; far more regularly and predictably.  ;)

And a broken clock is right more often than a working clock that's set wrong.

Thorstach has come to me in a vision. The letters "Nasdaq" towered over me, graven in stone, larger than Stonehenge.  Above them, like a dark and stormy cloud, were words of wisdom from Thorstach.  Something about VIX and ratios and inverted (something obscured by billowing smoke), and that this is the last and highest top that will ever exist.

The VIX, TLT, DXY, SPY, QQQ and the Dow are showing the greatest of all time mother of all tops (GOAT MOAT) is in.

The S&P 500 is up 4.7% since the GOAT MOAT was in.

A rainbow would be very appropriate since they go up, hit a top, and then come right back down and hit the ground.
