The Onion posted an article about Aunt Jemima being replaced. Less than a week later, Quaker actually announced a brand name change.

That's thorstach level prognostication.

The AQI outside my office is way too high right now. If I could find a way to sell I'd be thrilled.

Now this is not the top. It is not even the beginning of the top. But it is, perhaps, the end of the bottom of the top.

hmmm, kinda quiet in here today; hope all you buy and holders are enjoying September.

me, a crazy ass moving average "market timer" sure has. market down about 10% but as i'm a moving average investor, I approximated I have saved over 50,000 that I can put to use when this correction finishes and increase my gains even more. you buy and holders are now going to need to gain more than the drop from the top just to get back to even where you where at the top; but what do I know, i'm just a "market timer"

I am. Heck I'm hoping for a large decline for October as I'm planning to do a big Roth conversion soon, and I expect to sell my house and dump a lot of money into the market.

I'm not a market timer, but I can still feel quite smug if my moves otherwise coincide with favorable market environments!

Edit: Side note: I hadn't looked at the market today before reading this thread's latest update, so I opened a new tab. I started typing in "weather" instead of the index ETF symbol I typically check for market level. Freudian slip, I think.

This guy thinks that the correction is going to finish. He clearly doesn't know what "Top is in" actually means. The correction will finish right around the time that the sun expands and swallows the earth.

Since your post earlier today, as a buy and hold investor, I'm up at an annualized rate of 82.02%.

I'm always on the lookout for strategies that beat the market.  Yours may be one.  If you're willing to document your strategy now (so I can follow it later - I can't replicate your feelings and guesses, even if they turn out to be true most of the time), and then take a pile of money and follow that strategy, and then document it to show that your after investment expenses, after taxes, properly calculated (I suggest XIRR()), risk-adjusted (I like the Sharpe ratio) return beats a total market US index for, oh, let's say five years, then let me know and I'll be interested in reading about it.

But what do I know, I'm just a LTBH investor who retired at 46 and has a 0.47% net WR.

Hey - if you had sold all your stocks when the moving average began dropping, your strategy would have been better for the last 19 days! Thatís like basically three weeks. How can you argue with a three week history of success?

Three weeks!  That's like, what, eight to ten investing lifetimes!  I thought I was being quite rational in just discussing my returns (without any mention of risk, investment and life goals, time frames, alternatives, contingency plans, data, or logic) over just under five hours.

Thankfully today we've been in a secular bull market for a couple of hours.  The trend is your friend.

Based on my performance since 8 oíclock this morning, I project my annual rate of return to be... (checks figures)... 744%. So, on September 22, 2021 Iím planning to buy a race car. Iíve always wanted a race car and at this rate I think I can make that happen.

Cabaka's persistence is far from noob. Cabaka's comments are consistent threads in the tapestry of the top.

if you are serious, it is not my strategy; it is moving average investing using 5, 10, 25,50, 100, 200 day or whatever day moving average you wish on an index; people have been using that  long before I came around and will be long after and it beats the buy and holders here every time; it is up to you to choose which days and which indexes to be in , out, long or short. you can read about it and strategies in books and online most anywhere if you are interested. mine is not even mine, its from a book I read years ago.

I tried to show it here a while back but the group think is too strong so I moved on from mmm and in result have 50 posts in nearly 4 years.

when I come back its mostly to watch the "stocks are on sale posts", they amuse me. as of today, they all have lost 10% from the top is they stayed in and will need more than 10% to get back to even, even if the s+p goes back to its previous high this week. for some reason it is lost on everyone that getting back gains lost is always more difficult than adding likely a small amount more after your portfolio has lost a lot of value.

not picking on you, but as it seems you wished to pick on me(two snarky posts on one comment); i'm right back at you.

Update: based on my performance today I will have approximately 0.3% of my current funds in 12 months. So, instead of a race car I will have a cardboard box under a bridge.

if you are serious, it is not my strategy; it is moving average investing using 5, 10, 25,50, 100, 200 day or whatever day moving average you wish on an index; people have been using that  long before I came around and will be long after and it beats the buy and holders here every time; it is up to you to choose which days and which indexes to be in, out, long or short.

Emphasis added.  If it helps, momentum investing is something I, and most other investors, are familiar with; as you correctly point out, it's been out for a while.

Sincere questions:

Which index (or indices) do you use?
Which moving average(s) do you use?
Do you ever switch indexes or moving averages?  If so, how do you decide when to switch?
What do you mean by "days"?  Days of the week?  Month?  Year?  How do you decide?
How do you decide when to be "in" and when to be "out"?
How do you decide when to be long and when to be short?

Are you saying that I get to pick the index, the moving average, when to be in and when to be out, when to be long, and when to be short, that I'll beat buy and hold every time?  (If not, I'm a little unsure what "it" refers to in the bolded section above.)

Since you've been using this for a while, how do you know you've beaten buy and hold?

If using momentum investing is so easy and beats buy and hold every time, why do you think the buy and hold people haven't adopted it?

(Yes, I don't agree with you, but I am interested in learning from you, thus the questions.)

I'm always on the lookout for strategies that beat the market.  Yours may be one.  If you're willing to document your strategy now (so I can follow it later - I can't replicate your feelings and guesses, even if they turn out to be true most of the time), and then take a pile of money and follow that strategy, and then document it to show that your after investment expenses, after taxes, properly calculated (I suggest XIRR()), risk-adjusted (I like the Sharpe ratio) return beats a total market US index for, oh, let's say five years, then let me know and I'll be interested in reading about it.

I'm still interested.  PM me if you ever decide to do the above.  Or an article with relevant supporting data that isn't obviously cherry picked.

when I come back its mostly to watch the "stocks are on sale posts", they amuse me. as of today, they all have lost 10% from the top is they stayed in and will need more than 10% to get back to even, even if the s+p goes back to its previous high this week. for some reason it is lost on everyone that getting back gains lost is always more difficult than adding likely a small amount more after your portfolio has lost a lot of value.

well wintergreen how you feeling now ?

not picking on you, but as it seems you wished to pick on me(two snarky posts on one comment); i'm right back at you.

continue to mock me if it makes you happy, i'll be at my favorite watering hole celebrating with the money I approximate I have saved and watching the Stanley cup, go Stars !

It's hard to stay optimistic when the S&P 500 drops so far it is close to hitting lows not seen since Monday around 11:30.

Cabaka's persistence is far from noob. Cabaka's comments are consistent threads in the tapestry of the top.

I just meant your comments have been part of the thread for a while. Disagreeing with the groupthink doesn't mean you're a noob, it just means you disagree. Personally I think the flow of the thread is enlivened by your remarks.

I never absorbed exactly what you meant before, though, so the summary made me think. I'll dig into it sometime (probably right after it woulda been really helpful!).

If you donít have majority stakes in a dozen YouTube channels by age 10, you will likely never amount to anything.
