What's the best way to prepare for the "fiscal cliff"? I just don't see compromise happening.



Pick a stock/bond asset allocation you feel comfortable with and stay the course.

The question is when to jump in

Ah yes, I don't believe in market timing. Can't help you there. Good luck!

I'm a huge lover of technicals, and even I full heartedly agree with this.

Market timing is a myth that exists from hindsight.

Maybe I used a bad choice of words but I didn't mean trying to time the market.

It would be detrimental to make big investments in stocks, even with excellent numbers and fundamentals, if the fiscal cliff triggers a recession similar to the one in 08.

So for me, the question is when to jump in. (Before we reach the fiscal cliff, or after decisions are made and wait to see how the market reacts.)

doesn't say too much about the efficient market theory.

efficient market theory

I'm not sure what the bigger waste of time teaching in academia is, the efficient market hypothesis or the capital asset pricing model.

Both of these are absolute jokes at this point in time. Academia really needs to stop teaching finance in a static manner, correlations and relationships change all the time and models only work for a period of time. The ONLY relationships that will hold true are the inverse relationship between prices and yields, and that prices are determined by supply and demand. Everything past that can be broken at any time.

That law is broken all the time.

Hooray free shite from the government.

Wouldn't they still fall in the demand category?

re: Dow is down over 300 Points
Supply is fixed
Demand is completely elastic at the price point
Price is zero

Not sure if that counts as working or not. I think demand is being driven by the price in that scenario. The market clearing price is certainly above 0.

Yeah sorry about that. For whatever reason I thought of that "bet" i made and wanted to follow up. Maybe the OP can change the title or an admin can intervene. Sorry...

Don't worry, but for a second there I thought maybe TD was ahead of the major news services again.

That law is not broken without consequences, many of which are unintended. It's a law. Like gravity. We can go up in plane and simulate weightlessness so astronauts can train. Eventually, the law self -corrects and you better be holding on to something.
