I love how tone deaf some people can be in threads like this one.
Nah, I get it. I just can't be arsed to start a "serious" thread cos that's not we do around here.
Yes, that makes it even funnier.
If you peek back in the thread's history, during market drops the thread has fewer memes posted.  Meme top is in!

I know. It's like some people don't even take big market declines after a peak seriously.

Iíd rather joke about it than freak out.  But if weíre being honestÖ

Every time there's a big drop I keep expecting those people that kvetch about stocks being 'too expensive' to finally shut up.  Somehow that never happens.

Where do you see these comments?  Are they still saying stocks are overpriced or have they switched to saying the market is too volatile?

It's rather pathetic and predictable watching the bulls desperately defending the -20% level on the S&P that would ring the official bear market bell.  At this point I think we all know that there's a recession coming and an accompanying deep bear market to go with it.. let's just get on with it.

So if I understand you correctly here, I think what you're saying is "the top is in"?

It's been said that there are massive opportunities and fortunes to be made in recession.

This is why I'm opening up my own Top Is In clothing line. We will also be selling paper bags for people to put over their head as the world is ending.



But the only pathetic thing I've seen in this thread is vand continually trying to make serious comments, as if anyone here cares about his/her "expert" opinion. Read the room dude.

At this point I think we all know that there's a recession coming and an accompanying deep bear market to go with it..

I felt exactly the same way. In February/March 2020. It was slam-dunk obvious there would be a recession and investments would suffer.

Wait I still have more money than I did then, and I've earned like a grand total of $170 since then in income/donations. ???

Do you have anything more evocative of panic, and less aware of broader trends?

E.g. an S&P500 chart on linear scale with that moment in time pointed out in a cartoon speech bubble? Perhaps with @RWD 's list of posts on the back (QR codes would probably work best there).

I prefer to remain cryptic. I just want the shirts to say "Top Is In" right across the chest, with "Bottom Is In" right across the back of the pants.

People will be so confused that they don't know which is real.

But we'll know.

I think you might get interesting responses to such an outfit. To some, "the top is in" or "catching the bottom" mean something totally different than it means to most of us.

I like it.

Can we add "Sold in May, now away"

Sounds better than "Dead cat bounce" or "Catching a falling knife"...
