Looks like it might be another all-time high Friday! Lol.

Good, because we're taking the RMD out of an account today!

For the last 10 years top has been in 316 times.
For the last   5 years top has been in 199 times.

The last 10 years, top has been in 63 times on a Friday.

That means the "Top is In" about 20% of the time on Fridays.  Which makes sense since the other 80% happen on Mondays(20%), Tuesdays(20%), Wednesdays(20%) and Thursdays(20%).

100% The Top Is In!

Moments ago, the S&P 500 displayed on Yahoo Finance was 4411.14, which is entirely made of 4's and 1's in an almost symmetric display.

Clearly this means the increases are behind us, the crash ahead. Top top top top is innn!

Ha, math.  Love it. Long ago there were ten ppl in my department, and we had taken a survey. One of the survey questions was, "Do you have a best friend at work?"  When we went over the results by question, we were told that 10% of staff answered yes to this question.  I laughed and laughed.

Exactly!  No one else got it and they all looked at me like I was nuts.  I said I guess the best friend begs to differ.  I actually had to explain the math.

Mightn't the best friend have been at work, but in a different department?

It's probably rounded up from 4411.144.

Too bad we'll never see 4422.44 because THE TOP IS IN.

I told DH that this is my near-favorite thread on this forum. He is stock market wary relative to me, but we balance each other out pretty well overall.

Bet with DH during his shower one day:

Him: "The top was in Tuesday hun"
Me: "Oh yeah? For the next 10 years you think?"
Him: "Well, probably not 10 years, but..."
Me: "OK, what about 5?"
Him: "I give it a 10% chance the top is in for the next 5 years"
Me: "Next ONE year?"
Him: "I'd put 75:25 odds on the top being in for the next year, we're not going to see it get as high as it got Tuesday, no way, it is super overpriced still"
Me: Breathes patiently for 4 days
Today: "HUN THE TOP WAS IN TODAY YOU LOSE YOU LOSE YOU LOSE!!!! AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA! SAY I WAS RIGHT SAY I WAS RIGHT AND YOU LOVE ME AND I'M THE SMARTEST WIFE IN THE WORLD"

Since we're still in the accumulation phase, I rarely look at how much money we have in our accounts. However, DW was asking me some questions about some of her 401K records so far this year, and I saw her retirement has gone up 15% in half a year.

I realized, oh no, I've checked things to see how much it's gone up! I've jinxed everything! Top is in!

I feel like Scrooge McDuck just about every Friday now, massaging my hands together while I look at the market closing.numbers with a devilish grin on my face. Haha! Not really, but the constant tops are quite dopamine inducing, as Pavlov would quickly point out.

It's not fair, my balances haven't gone up every Friday so I am totally missing out on dopamine rushes.   Crap there has been no change since 6/30, ya know the last time I checked.   

Checking balances top is in.

The top is in. I will be depositing the money from my home sale (I plan to rent for 4 years while in a VHCOLA) in the next month.  I expect once itís in he market will drop, but we have a few more weeks to go to the top.

August is usually a doldrums month.  September and October are two of the worst months seasonally.  Things get better mid November.

Indeed, in these latter days we often have posted as if the Top was an amorphic concept best examined through memes and silly limericks. But in the beginning, thorstach showed us that charts and straight-drawn lines are often appropriate for examining the nature of the Top and the ways that It is in.

This thread is all fun and games but I'm legit spooked now that a wild thorstach appeared.  If his past announcements are any indication we need to strap in for the rocket ride we are about to endure.  Thorstach saying the top is in means surely it can go up another 10-20%.
