sp500 down another 1.5-2% in afterhours.....200dma hit....now see if we get bounce....I have no clue if we get one or not.



Wow I was thinking we'd see a bounce and a retracement of today's move. Gonna be a late night tonight looking at how to take advantage of these discount prices.

I feel like you would have missed out on the 2017 rally with this strategy. Great for volatility.
I didn’t mention that I would continue monthly Roth contributions.

If we are down another 2-3% tomorrow, then it will test my ability to "buy fear".

I am looking to buy a house next year so at odds with putting that cash to work in a volatile market.

To be fair. Stocks haven't really gone up that much from Jan 2018 peak. A lot of long-term growth indicators are projecting closer to a 4% annual return on the market moving forward as opposed to a 7% that is always quoted.

We've also hit the 200dma in the futures so while 100% equity investors are down -6% in their portfolio since the last all-time high he is down 0%.

While people love to hate on cash, it is a position in the market and in a bear market it is the better position to have. Timeframe is key in these things.

As a 30 year old, this sucks. So we’re turning into the FTSE?

re: So, who is buying?
Not sure.

Anyone bailing over the trade war is dumb. If the trade war is bad and DJT loses, the Dim will bend the knee and the market will rebound.

If the trade war is bad and DJT wins in 2020, the market will rebound nicely in 2025. (Or manufacturing moves to other SEA countries and offsets the damage.)

If the trade war is good, American companies increase their profits and investors win.

On Tuesday morning, the People’s Bank of China set the yuan fixing at 6.9683 per dollar.

A Reuters estimate had expected a weaker midpoint of 6.9736.

In Monday’s Asian afternoon trading hours, the onshore currency changed hands at 7.0304 against the dollar, while the offshore yuan traded at 7.0807 against the greenback.

Probably not. Dow Jones futures still down over 300.


Eta: There’s hope! DJ futures now only down 59 points.

Where did it bounce? Is it a relief rally or are you just here to make funny jokes?
