New closing top is in.  The Top is dead, long live the Top !

Which ticker are you people using to verify that the top is in?  Does it include reinvested dividends?

Due to the coming earnings meltdown and cascading downward revisions in dividend payout ratios, reinvestment of dividends is irrelevant. You can't reinvest a zero. Abandon all hope. The only ticker you will need is a heartbeat monitor to determine whether your health will collapse with the market.

TL;DR - Ticker shmicker, top is in.

That, or the S&P 500.

Just checking, but you do know this entire thread is a joke right?

Like there is no real top, and if there is its lasts a few years before the market marches higher to set a new top...:)

Well, we're not doing the usual 'hockey stick' thing where tulip bulbs are worth Lamborghini prices, so maybe the top isn't in?  All I know is, this time it's different :)

Thatís what Iíve been saying!  But it does seem like today is slightly up, so sell today not yesterday.  And if we are up tomorrow, then sell tomorrow not today.  Top is in.

Glad I waited for today's top to not sell! I even bought .05 shares of VOO. I'm going to go down in flames.

We may have to wait a bit, he usually appears after 2 days of -1-2% in a row to declare the Top is in again, just in time for the bear trap to kick in and markets to continue going up.

So this has probably been discussed elsewhere, but we are now at the point where if we get another drop like 2008, we will still be at or above the 2007 ďtopĒ

New high market close on Friday, new intra-day high today. Guess the top wasn't in last September after all.

I am adrift, I no longer know what to think.

Apple's numbers were above line and April employment was +100k over estimates, should have sold last Friday's top.

Good thing you didn't- last Friday's top is the old top. S&P is up another 5+ points since then, so today is the new top.

It's definitely all downhill from here though.

The market going up at the beginning of the year means that it will go down at the end of the year. Unless it doesnít.

Would it be too early to say "tree top is in"?  Sorry, terrible sense of humor.

Glad to hear there's a silver lining.  Hopefully things will improve.

Trying to calling tops and bottoms is a waste of time.  I am a little jealous of the 100-80% stock allocation crowd these days.  But perfectly content with my smoother ride portfolio with allocations in non traditional groups like market neutral, managed futures,swan defined risk and precious metals.  Enjoy the ride.

Of course it was down today, because I put in my order to sell my stock that just vested! Itíll be up next week when I put those funds into Vanguard. Guaranteed.

Sorry about your luck there :( I hope that everything you sold was at least worth more than what you paid for it.

Top is also in with a strong chance of another melt up.
