And here I am sitting on dividends/contributions that I haven't reinvested.  Top is definitely in the moment I push the buy button

The Santa rally is no match for the top.

Everyone knows that this is the most reliable indicator of the top being in.

The top paid for 1/3 of our new (to us) car. It seems like my exit timing should counter your entry timing… but that can’t be when the top is in.

Nasdaq's QQQ just eclipsed the 2021 ATH, so maybe NOW the top is in?  Well, not after hours because it is still going up, but soon I'm sure...

Oooh.. Dare we hope to surpass the ATH top (about 4800 on the S&P500) before the start of 2024?

OK, I guess I jinxed it!

You're not doing it right. When you pray you have to start with the @ sign. For example, @thorstach, we await your return...

As a true follower, I'm bearish. My portfolio is concentrated in long-duration bonds like TLT, EDV, ZROZ, and a bunch of individual issues. So you probably think I did badly today.

Nope, actually. SPY is up 0.92% but my bond funds are up:

TLT: +1.88%
EDV: +2.57%
ZROZ: +2.55%

In conclusion, bulls make money, bears make money, and the top is in for everyone when Santa Powell comes to town.

S&P is 1.87% from ATH. I smell a new ATH coming before the end of the year. Who saw that coming in early 2023? Makes me think about anyone that sold RE last summer before interest rates went up and then invested it. That would make 3 years running they pulled in a 20% return. Lucky bastards!

Canadian Bonds VAB: +1.06%  Makes no sense other than the Top is in!

Pretty sure you can think me, guys. I spent a lot of this year putting money into more conservative financial options like short term income ETFs instead of the S&P 500, believing a recession was likely. Yet again, proof you shouldn’t try to time the market. Enjoy!

I feel like we're reducing thorstach to a similar status as Punxsutawney Phil. Do we truly believe in thorstach or is his appearance merely as valuable as a lowly groundhog seeing his shadow?

If Thorstach doesn’t tell us about XIV breaking down, the top won’t be in for 6 more weeks.

S&P is exactly 56 points, or 1.12% from ATH. I think a new top is going to be under my Christmas tree!

It's tough because even though our mentor and savior blessed us with an appearance, there are some inertial effects that are tough to time out. Top is in obeys its own natural laws, but us mortals cannot do that math.

Maybe it's up to us mortals to ensure the prophesy comes to be! After all, it should be less work to make the world worse than to make it better.

Roughly 35 points away from an ATH on the S&P500.

I'm thinking in all seriousness this run up is going to take a breather, then hopefully the rise upwards will continue.
