Short term Top ahead!  Does that mean long term top is in or not?

Hmm. I donít know. What do CNBC and Market Watch have to say?

I'm going to need to see some lines and scribbles on a chart before I know what to think. And also I'm going to need to hear from some billionaires and fund managers, who always seem to have an inordinate amount of time to chat with the sober and serious business reporters from the cable news networks.

Well, if I can convince 1 billion people to each give me $1, I'll be happy to share my opinion on the market.

I would also settle for $10 each from 100 million people.

Ok so this actually affects me a little. In our household, we have quite a lot of company stock received as grants). Periodically, I sell batches of stock and use the proceeds to buy to index funds. I now have several tens of thousands of dollars waiting for deployment - do I wait? :-)

Just to add - I do this kinds of rebalancing all the time. Usually, I don't give it any thought since I am resolutely opposed to market timing. However, this time, I had a slight twinge off doubt for the first time - not sure why though.

So one of the Excel gurus around here needs to make a tenth of a point drop look like a fire sale and a 5 point increase look like a flat line - on the same graph. And go!

I know we had the GOAT MOAT (Greatest Of All Time Mother Of All Tops), so I wonder if we will have a GOAT FLOAT (Greatest of All Time Father-in-Law Of All Tops) at some.

Wait, so is THAT what they call a bond tent?

Looks more like a float than a tent, but what do I know? Tent TOP is in.

I'm feeling scared.

TIME TO GO ALL CASH.

amidoinitrite? Actually I think I forgot to rebalance this year. Normally do that on my bday...

Also I'm amused this thread is the only way I learn about what the market does.

Going all cash isn't commitment to a top prediction.  Commitment is when you go ALL PENNY CANDY.  This is the best bang for your buck in the dystopian future where the only currency is the number of calories you have at the end of the day . . . that will certainly come about after THE ALMIGHTY TOP has been reached.

We have to hit 30,000 before the music stops.   Everyone likes nice big targets so 30,000 is in the cards for sure now.

Oh! That movie is incredible.

They knew the top was in before anyone else did, and they got out before the music stopped.

But, if the top was in back then, how is the top in now? Iíve never thought about that before. Maybe the movie is from the future, and it is about what is happening right now. Yeah, that isnít definitely what is happening.

Yep.  CNBC already has the party hats ordered.  Dow 30K is the top of the top.

Goddamn it. I just can't seem to get to two-comma assets. After my "power move" to re-leverage the house last month, we were sitting on $995K in assets. But then a credit card payment processed, and I won't get another paycheck until 11/30 or 12/1. Now the TOP IS IN again and we haven't hit ONE MILLION DOLLARS in assets yet, and we may never get there because the TOP IS IN.

Don't worry, the 11-18 top was short lived and apparently ended this morning. As I write this the S&P is up 0.07% today. Believe it or not, there's a NEW top!!!

You could have ONE MILLION DOLLARS fairly easily of they're Liberian dollars.
