Capitol top is in....

Hopefully.

With one party holding both houses and the presidency I expect a Capitol bull for the next two years.

I think it's quite clear that both parties are very capable of producing lots of bull.

Based on this mornings market, capitol top clearly does not equal capital top.

I learned from many of my FB friends that America's capital is Washington DC. I always thought that it was the A (or US & A if you're pedantic).

Pretty sure the spelling top was in a few years ago. We’re slowly moving back to hieroglyphics now.

S&P was down 6.9% June 8 - June 26
S&P hit new high on July 20
S&P was down 8.7% Sep 2 - Oct 30
S&P hit new high on Nov 13th

To invoke the prophet you need multiple back to back days of -1% or more, with a total drop of at least 3%.

We were at only - 1.5% since the Top on Jan 8th

You can almost feel it coming ... market is down for the third day in a row, finance headlines are doom and gloom, the question starts to creep in your mind, “is this it, was this the one?” Then, suddenly, The Profit appears, tells us of the (second?) coming of The Top. Finally,  A sigh of relief, knowing that tomorrow the markets will recover.

It’s a tale as old as time.

New president, new top

We may well have seen peak presidential fraud, twitter usage, bald faced denial of reality and lying, top white house staff turn over, peak impeachment number, highest levels of presidential collusion with Russia, and top presidential fake tan levels. . .

 . . . but I'm predicting that we're nowhere near peak presidential aviator photos.

Both. There will (probably) be a new top at the end of the day and there was another, slightly lower top when command was passed on. So one presidency ends at the top and a new starts with a new top.

That means top is most def in. Not every day you get two presidential tops in one day.

He posted a 38-minute video that I got bored with after 10 seconds without prior context.

Didn't watch the 38m video.  Are you familiar with the term "perma bear"?  A two minute google finds an article where Grantham thought the market was fairly valued in 2008 and a bubble about to burst in 2016.  If he's right, he's playing a long con.

I'm not sure we've reached the crazy top yet... but I think you're on to something @techwiz.

This week I've learned that I will not "hold forever" if: 1) the stock price seems irrationally optimistic and 2) the number of eggs in the basket has grown from "just for fun" to "statistically significant".

Turns out i have a holding top.
