Seriously - going to be doing 2019 Solo 401K and IRAs tomorrow to the tune of $60K+. Anyone have Trump's direct line? I need some inflammatory tweets about trade policy or something.

I've come to the conclusion that the great Thorstach is looking at the market as a buyer, ie larger numbers on the bottom.  If you're buying, the top is the seller's bottom.  If you call the top (for buyers) and the number gets larger, then you're right because the market just went down (for buyers).

@ysette9 So did you hit your number today?..:)
I updated my spreadsheet, added in a forgotten account into my formula, and now we are $5k away from The Number.

Can you spare some change?

Feds cut rates at 2pm EDT.  Triple bottom was in back in August.  Santa Claus rally coming from here on out to the end of the year.  Thorstach tried to play the inverted yield curve and failed.

I started a reply tangent pondering the nature of a Santa Claus rally, and realized I could find the answer myself. This quote from Investopedia (https://www.investopedia.com/terms/s/santaclauseffect.asp) is rather amusing (bolding mine for humor):

Quote
A Santa Claus rally describes sustained increases in the stock market that occur in the last week of December through the first two trading days in January. There are numerous explanations for the causes of a Santa Claus rally including tax considerations, a general feeling of optimism and happiness on Wall Street and the investing of holiday bonuses. Another theory is that some very large institutional investors, a number of whom are more sophisticated and pessimistic, tend to go on vacation at this time leaving the market to retail investors, who tend to be more bullish.

It's the time of the month when my 403b contribution hits, so the top must be in.

I've noticed the same thing, it always seems like the market jumps on 15th and 31st of the month when I get paid. What's the deal!!!

I am a fairly technical trader and know all the lingo in the business and by the business I mean the industry.  LOL

I had no idea there was a Santa Claus rally.  I guess you learn something every day!

Well, lots of other people paying on those days, too!   Might be worth looking at prices 2-4 days later.

I accidentally waited too long to enter orders for my 2019 SoloK and IRA contributions today because subconsciously, I believe the TOP IS IN.

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

Should I buy back in now?

I'm starting a job soon with some nice RSUs over the next few years.

Top is probably in because of that.

Santa Claus Rally will add on another 5% in the next 2 months for bigger and better Tops.  Thorstach has been PMing me as they are too embarrassed to post right now and they know better than to go against Santa.

Looked at the Dow mini-futures for Monday, up by over 1%. Wasn’t expecting that. It means we will have over $5 million again, which means the top is in.
