All these people scared about retirement won’t be able to sell while their FAs are on their ski trips and beach trips. Saw a lot of Give Up sentiment Friday, people who didn’t want to think about their investments till next year.

Oops

I’m waiting patiently until I see signs the bleeding is slowing. The market has lost all rationality and predictability.

I'm selling my entire stock portfolio. There's too many uncertainties and Trump's tweets and Mnuchin's meeting with bank execs are enough to let me know there's no future there.

The problem is precious metals (gold, platinum, rhodium, etc.) aren't that strong either, and the bottom's dropping out of petroleum. I've made the decision to go full barrel into cryptocurrency. It's the new .com type wunderkind of investments.

The hatred/fear from Trump from the left and the RINOs

...is not irrational and totally without justification. The president needs to lay off Twitter and let the Fed chairman do his job. There's a reason the Federal Reserve is autonomous.

The last I looked Trump didn't have a PhD. in economics. If he does, then the American people need to see his missing transcripts.

PhD in Economics isn’t even specific enough to be the Fed chairman. The person needs to specifically focus on macro economics and a relevant sub specialty therein.

I had the opportunity once to attend a meeting Ben Bernanke was chairing in Washington, DC. That guy is so smart it was frightening. He made me feel like a novice in finance.

He asked a banking policy question of us sitting around the table but before I could raise my hand to answer it he called on someone else. The guy Bernanke called on gave the same answer I was going to give.

I was feeling pretty smug.

Then Bernanke grinned and asked a follow-up question which completely destroyed the guy’s answer to the original question. Everyone laughed.

I was never so happy in my whole life I didn’t get called on first.

Not sure what price you bought at but it looks like you are locking in a loss. Entire stock portfolio - are they all losers with no chance of recovering?

This makes it more critical that the president just ease up on the Twitter and let the Fed act without harassment.

I've had them since 2011. Considerable gains until recently and now back to almost break even.

Not too bad then. Especially if the market continues to go down and you get back in near the bottom. I sold almost all of my positions at various times earlier this year and have started getting back in. All but one stock are in a short term capital gain position. It looks like I might have started to get back in a little early. I moved into MO in earlier this month and it is already down 10%. At least I still have some dry powder for next year.

It finished down 5.01%.

To put that into perspective, if the Dow Jones did that in a day it would be down almost 1,100 points.

For some perspective, the returns since 2010 have been fantastic. We are no lower than we were 2 years ago.

I think it's a chunk of people taking some of their profits after the long runup of the past decade

They're mutual funds, not individual stocks. Nuveen International Growth, Nuveen Real Estate Securities, AMG Managers Fairpointe, Black Rock Equities, INVESCO Diversified, Fidelity Contrafund. They all went up nicely in the 3th quarter, but are tanking now.

Also 30% bonds. How are bonds doing nowadays?

My hit for 12/17 - 12/24 was only -3.1%, so I'm still doing ok. Am not buying anything yet though.
