I was kind of relieved to see it drop a little today. I hope it stays down through tomorrow so my purchases/contributions are more productive. I don't want to be buying all kinds of shares at all time highs :D
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.


I just want everyone to know I perfectly times my sale for this months expenses at the mid day top

S&P 500 has crossed 2950.. We're doomed!

<yawn>

I am grumpy today about some financial matters (my mother's spending, medical bills, tree fell on my house, yada yada) and just saw this thread, looked at my accounts and realized, I'm richer than I've ever been. 

Gotta be the top.

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.
Tree top is in da house. woot woot!

Nah, it was just the tip...

/ba dump dump/

The tip of one branch, that is.

The top is not in yet, but it will be shortly:

We're for sure going to melt-up, but then the top will be in.

Aw man, I was just going to start the betting pool on whether Thorstach would be back today! (Futures are way down given tariff talk by 45).

In Stardew Valley, I named my goat GOATMOAT in honor of this thread.

Those blue lines form an arrow pointing in the direction of the TOP.  Looks to me it is S&P hitting 3000 around the 21st of May according to the blue line....

This might be it?

Isnít that technically a TRIPLE GOAT MOAT?  I agree with techwiz that it appears we are in for a quadruple goat moat and beyond.  The top will always be in, of course, but thereís no law saying the top canít get higher over time.  Fight me

The anticipation of the view from the top is always so exciting, until you realize it was just a false summit.

The top WAS in. Thorstach called it. Now it's time for the sudden and inevitable decline.

Fear is back, VIX above 15, XIV breaking down. SPY to follow, earnings will be a reality check.

I sold off as soon as I read this. Still waiting for the bottom so I can finally buy back in.

Kind of like a Mobius striptease.  The third dimension is overrated.  A two dimensional stripper just turns her clothes inside out.

Mobius top/bottom is in/out.

Saturday my 7-day annualized loss was about 75%, so I missed the top and am panicking since it's going to be worse after the NAVs update today.

Oh wait no I'm not because I have long term AA plans and expect this kind of thing occasionally and will stuff my normal portion into my next paycheck as scheduled no matter where the market is then.

As JL.Collins pointed out referring to a study done by Fidelity. The investors that had made the best returns over time.. They were dead! Literally..:)

Moral of the story?.. Don't do anything, except keep investing if you have a pulse!

Yeah, that whole thing about the Fidelity study was made up.  It never really happened.

Then I guess they also published something that didn't happen.

"Fidelity, which has received inquiries about the study ever since, without knowing why, told me this week that it had never produced such a study."

What does it even mean for the top to be in? I think we may not be comprehending the full metaphysical nature of Thorstachís teaching. This myopic focus on numbers and charts is narrowing our thinking too much.

I for one will lock myself in a dark room and meditate on the nature of the eternal top.

Iíve decided to only define my tops in non-inertial reference frames. Even the position of the top and the bottom within the frame is no longer fixed.
