Ouch, Market Taking a Beating


Opened down 90, now down 160

Looks like Walmart missed, I'm assuming that is a major reason

Kind of shows how people are really spending their money instead of just going off of Surveys...

Yep, this is one of those days where I just turn my head and check back in at 3:00.

Yeah, that's pretty much the only time I check the markets. And even then, I don't get excited unless the markets have been going down 1% or more for several days.

I'm investing $2K/Month in index funds and managed funds regardless of what the markets are doing, I'll buy more when I'm getting a bargain.

How do you do this?

I've got leftover money and want to start putting it somewhere. Do you just go through a Vanguard and buy into the same funds over and over again?

Well people like Robert Shilling, Marc Faber, et al. have been throwing around the "bubble" word a lot the last 2-3 weeks, so it's not like a market correction isn't expected by a lot of people, myself included.

Since we're near the tail end of a lengthy 14-year bearish period for stocks, I don't think prices are terrible for the long term, but I do think that there will be a significant shakeout with home prices and equity prices as economic policy begins to transition, and more talk starts to revolve around a 2nd sequester, ObamaCare implementation, Fed tapering, etc.

Just FYI, That $2K is not "left over money", I invest before I pay any bills, buy any food, or buy any toys. It's off the top, it's paying yourself first. NOBODY gets paid before I pay myself, Not the utility company, not the bank, not THE frickING IRS. Now, I still pay those bills, but my priority is to myself and everyone else can wait in line.


I have a auto draft set up with American Funds and Fidelity. And that $2K goes to the same funds, month in, and month out. When I have leftover money that I want to invest in the market, I can buy funds from either firm in taxable accounts or I can buy stocks in my Trade King account.

Several major players, John Paulson among them, suggest real estate, REITs as a potential haven.

The same guy who got killed this year on gold?

I think he might be about to walk into the same trap with REITs, but we already discussed real estate a good bit in that thread from last Friday.

Yep.
Perhaps more importantly, the guy who shorted real estate (subprime) in 2007's "greatest trade ever."
