My wife and I were shopping for a tween birthday party, and found ourselves in the lego section at a local store. I don't really keep track of the Marvel movies, but there's a lego set about Thor that is basically called the GOAT BOAT.

I so wish some of this crew could have been there, it'd fit right in.

We did not buy it, in keeping with Mustachian Values.

The top was most definitely in the second that I poured five figures into the market this morning.

NOOOOO!

The bottom wont be in until this thread drops to the second page of results. Ive been watching it daily, holding my breath, getting ready to jump back into the market. Now we have 40 more days of the top being in.

Just need some dedicated necroposting. Maybe find other Thorstach nuggets of wisdom and pop them up above. Make top is in top in.

Anyone wanting to engage in some market timing - I rolled over my big IRA to the brokerage where I'd actually like to hold my money for simplicity sake.  And now I'm selling and rebuying into my preferred funds. So Sell orders on ~$600,000 in mutual funds should go through tomorrow, and I'll rebuy in the funds I want the next day. Figure that basically guarantees market will be down tomorrow and up the next day, only question is by how much.

Eh - I did this quite a few years ago with about $250K when "the big IRA" was still "my solo 401K" and I noticed better funds were available. Actually managed to luck into a -3% day on the "buy order" day and wound up with like $6 or 7,000 worth of extra shares. Probably can find that 70 pages back in this thread if you look hard.

And much more recently with over $1 million re-allocating church's endowment because we're the angry hippie denomination and wanted ESG funds instead of total market and I'm lucky enough to be the VP for finance when this thing that's been talked about for over a decade actually happens.

So I've got some practice and so long as tomorrow and the next day are highly unlikely to be another black Tuesday (Monday? I can never keep straight what day of the week that was), we'll be fine, and the market usually goes up so just doing it immediately is the best play on-average. And its not all of our money - somewhere between 50 and 60 percent but not all of it.

Oh - and they are mutual funds, so I think I can cancel the orders if something big happens that looks like it'll be bad - rare to be in the last few minutes of trading for the huge swings to happen.

Market is looking to finish down today, but not nearly enough for me to cancel the orders today and try again later. Top is in on my worry over the big transactions. Might go down further tomorrow for all I know.

Now if I really want to test that intestinal fortitude, this would be an opportune time to try out @boarder42 's small-cap-value move with some real money. Got about $50K between the new-iteration soloK and the HSA accounts, but that ain't much in our grand scheme.

US Dollar Top Is In!
In all fairness, the British are attempting economic suicide, first with Brexit and now with tax cuts and energy subsidies on top of a serious balance-of-payments crisis-in-the-making. The Scots want out of the sinking ship and I can't blame them. The last remnants of the former British Empire will soon look a lot like a tiny Greece or Italy - with a slight risk of Lebanon.

As an SNP member, I mostly agree. But it isn't just the GBP. The USD looks good compared to just about everyone right now which is why I included DXY.

Gotta admit, it seems to increase the ups and downs a little bit. When I got back "in" to the market a couple months ago after brief timely exit, I bought almost entirely "small cap value"-ish ETFs (VTWV, VIOV, VBR) and VTWO - lots of small cap, some value tilt. Roller coaster, begin (gulp).

Sorry of the diversion from humor! Best wishes if you jump in the SC or SCV pool though.

Looks like I called it this time in terms of "down on sell day, up on buy day - lose money!", but not looking too bad. Decided on 15% SCV of this account and to continue adding only SCV in any new money in the soloK and HSA as I had been dipping toe in. Reduced the total stock market allocation commensurately. Last SCV purchase was actually at a 20% higher price than today, so I guess I'm dollar-cost-averaging. Coasting since last year means I don't have near as much income to invest each year now, so the new-money buying is less regular than it used to be.

Top is in on SCV for sure. Gonna be down 50% tomorrow probably.

If one must own stocks on the way down, value stocks are the way to go. But on the way back up, you want to be in tech stocks. See 2009-2019. Since the top was in back in January 2022, you'll need to check the Bottom Is In thread for a signal to plow back into tech.
