Another 17% in the second half would be nice..:)

Us accumulators need -17% in the second half 😈

You’re in the right thread then!  Invest all your money next year when the market is down 17% and you can enjoy withdrawing it all a few decades later when it’s down 99%.  Perfect for accumulators

It's hard to argue with your logic. I'm cashing out now and waiting until next year to reinvest. Or 3 decades from now. What could go wrong?

Somewhere on this planet, Thorstach is giving Jerome Powell a high five and nodding to the market knowingly...  it's only the Top when you say it's the Top Jerome...  let's see if we have 5000 in us, eh?

But the top is in. Oh - you must mean S&P 5K after the inevitable re-scaling when it gets down to 50.

But wait 2021 is not a leap year. The last leap day was February 29, 2020. The next one is February 29, 2024.  Unless you are following Black hat's leap year rules....



Leap year Top is in!

Your avatar shows you as inverted, so I think you need to roll back upright so you can see that the TOP IS IN.

Seems like there's been a tiny dip after the middle of the month for most months since January. I predict the top will be in on September 15, 2021.

Don't even mention all the

We are lucky that the last one was Friday, August 13, 2021 and the next one isn't until next year May 13, 2022.

Well with the top being in I don't think there will be a work to go back to.  So yes you get the next two days off as well as all the rest of them.  It's kind of like FIRE but with much more desperate poverty.

I know it seems silly, but there's a good reason for it.   Back in the day we were a largely agricultural country and by Oct 1st we had a pretty good idea how the crops were doing that year.  And then it becomes tradition.

Fast forward to present day when a large majority of federal employees earn 26 days of annual leave (as well as 13 days of sick leave) and the weeks around Christmas & New Years are ghost towns.  So having the fiscal year end away from the major holidays definitely helps.
