The S&P must be exhausted for m all the climbing it's doing! Now 0.59% from ATH. Three more trading sessions to grant me the present of New Top under my Christmas tree.

I've almost certainly passed my personal ATH today.. Funny thing though.. I don't feel any different. Its like one more turnip has been thrown on the already full turnip truck.

WTF am I going to do with all those turnips?.. And I still keep getting more!

Our economy is clearly heading towards "Venezuela Hell Hole" territory any day now!

I agree but the top is still not anywhere near close to being in. The stock market and the economy are complete detached from one another. It will remain like this. Massive new highs coming...

If your truck is already full, feel free to throw your excess into mine! :P

You better hold your horses there, buster.....

After the real top is finally in, there won't be a plateau or nice downside ride. Only a full-speed crash into the fucking ground.

Total societal devastation and bloodshed.

Venezuelans are used to dealing with poor living conditions and makeshift everything.

Americans are not. Within 5 days, 95% of the country will be warring over food and water.

There will be no "buying the dip". It's game over.

Bullets, bullion, bourbon, tampons, and cigarettes are what the intelligent will be holding.

BTW... If you have cash you'll have about 48 hours to buy things with it. After that, dollars are mere toilet paper.

What if I told you that the top is nothing more than the imaginary idea of a non-existent angle on a never ending, completely synthetic and simulated two dimensional line?

I see neophytes are having trouble with the basics, so I made a list:

Top Ten Commandments
1.   Top is in
2.   Fear is back
3.   Thou shalt observe VIX is up
4.   Thou shalt observe XIV breaking down
5.   Earnings shall be a reality check
6.   There is only one Top and thorstach is its prophet
7.   Thou shalt measure Top using the S&P500 price index
8.   Thou shalt not include dividends when measuring Top, nor shalt thou include expenses
9.   Top shall be measured only at the end of the trading day
10.   A confirmed downtrend from all time highs is anything but noise, fellow

Well fuck. Another 10 commandments and rape, child molestation, racism, war, pollution, bribery, and domestic abuse failed to make the list AGAIN. Plus there are now more thought-crimes. What is it with religions? Morality top is in.

He was just inverted. Top Gun reference Top is in!


Does this mean we can expect the market to go into an inverted 4g dive?

In the realm where bulls and bears collide,
A tale unfolds, where fortunes bide.
Upon the stage, a market's dance,
A waltz of chance, of circumstance.

Whispers murmur, rumors fly,
The market's heartbeat, a speculative sigh.
In shadows cast by candle's gleam,
The wisest ponder, the hopeful dream.

"The top is in," they softly say,
As numbers climb, then slip away.
A symphony of tickers, a financial art,
A tapestry woven, a delicate chart.

In the cathedral of finance, where echoes ring,
Traders' fingers dance on every string.
Green and red, the flags of fate,
As markets rise and contemplate.

High above, the summit gleams,
A peak so lofty, a realm of dreams.
Yet whispers grow, a cautionary call,
"The top is in," a warning sprawl.

Speculation's tide, a restless sea,
Where fortunes ebb and flow in glee.
The siren song of wealth's allure,
Yet danger lurks, obscured, unsure.

The bulls may charge, the bears may growl,
Yet time unveils the market's scowl.
In cycles spun, a wheel that turns,
A lesson learned as fortune burns.

So heed the echoes, the caution's chime,
In the rhythm of the market's prime.
For on the summit, where eagles soar,
The top is in, forevermore.

A symphony of tickers, a financial art,
A tapestry woven, a delicate chart.

In the cathedral of finance, where echoes ring,
Traders' fingers dance on every string.
Green and red, the flags of fate,
As markets rise and contemplate.

High above, the summit gleams,
A peak so lofty, a realm of dreams.
Yet whispers grow, a cautionary call,
"The top is in," a warning sprawl.

Speculation's tide, a restless sea,
Where fortunes ebb and flow in glee.
The siren song of wealth's allure,
Yet danger lurks, obscured, unsure.

The bulls may charge, the bears may growl,
Yet time unveils the market's scowl.
In cycles spun, a wheel that turns,
A lesson learned as fortune burns.

So heed the echoes, the caution's chime,
In the rhythm of the market's prime.
For on the summit, where eagles soar,
The top is in, forevermore.

I guess I'll have to be "that guy"...

Is this a parody of something?
