Time for a bust, so if youv got alot in a 401k and stock in anything that generally followz the Dow number, time to cash out.

It's artificially hi and the walez know that Trump iz going to be like Bush on steroidz. The minit wun uv them starts selling, the little guyz will follow and then its a rase for the life boats.

My fee for this advise iz 10%, az usual. Uze Paypal, its fast & eazy.

Don't actually cash out your 401k though. You don't want to pay that early withdrawal penalty. Just put it in one of the safe investments.

And since it's all a crap shoot anyway and you might as well be gambling at Vegas, don't get mad at J0 if he was wrong and you lose out on some big gains. Chances are you were going to have it in there too long and lose them all whenever the next crash happens anyway. And it will eventually happen sooner or later.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

America loves a winner!


We were told that this would never happen under Trump.


We were also told he had no path to 270 either...

Please don't tell me you give Trump credit for this.

"If you're an investor, there are a lot of people to thank for the second-longest bull market run in history. Perhaps after mentioning people like Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and S&P 500 CEOs for the support, it would be wise to bring up someone a little more unexpected: President Obama.

In fact, as far as presidents go, he's been one of the most successful in modern history in supporting the growth of the market according to Bespoke Investment Group.

"The reality, though, is that the stock market has done exceptionally well under President Obama," wrote Bespoke in a note out Thursday.

"The Dow Jones Industrial Average's performance [under Obama] of 120.6% ranks as the sixth best of any US President since 1900, just behind Reagan and comfortably ahead of Truman, who at 74.4% is far behind." "

That's from Business Insider who are not typically big fans of Obama.

Stock predictors are just better guessers than the rest of us, but just barely, and frequently they are wrong. Otherwise it would be easy money. And thank gawd the ones that predicted his taking office would have negative effect were wrong, but don't think for a second they won't turn the other way when the opportunity presents itself. 'Course we won't know because he'll own the press and it will all appear all rosy, like it is in Russia. Maybe we'll hit 30,000 in a couple months! Wheee....

Wall Street did great under Obama.

It was Main Street who has had the longest slump of growth since the Great Depression.

The markets are up 10% since Trump was elected. It will likely go up another 10% before there's a correction. So now is still a good time to buy if you'd like to make 5%-10% on your money with ETFs in just a few months.

Thanks for pointing out to people that the slang is not the literally accurate statement.

"cashing out" of a high DOW means, in trading jargon, transferring your shares from a Stock-based mutual fund to a more cash-similar fund such as Government bonds or treasuries - preferably a fund which CANNOT lose money (technically, lose dollar value, even though it may in fact devalue slightly). And confirm that it is also a tax-deferred fund, to further avoid penalties.

Hey... no problem.

It's been about 7 years since I had any of my money in the market, but I used to know the rules of the game. Did pretty well there myself, but I didn't see the crash coming in 2008. Luckily when our company was bought out in mid 2007 or so they froze all of our 401k accounts and took forever to transfer them over to the new provider. If that hadn't happened, I probably would have lost 30-50% of what I had in there and I wouldn't have been able to buy my house after I got laid off. Now the house has paid for itself, literally, in the rent I haven't had to pay in the last 5 1/2 years. :)

The market is not a place for me anymore. I walked away a winner.


Just felt the need to point out to people who might not know much about 401k and the market who are a bit panicky that what J0 meant was exactly as you said and not to actually turn it into cash.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Obviously.
We certainly wouldn't want anybody to see a gain of 5% of their worth in only a month, right?
Dow hit 21,169 at the beginning of March. About 5 weeks after this thread's OP.

I made about $1,200 this month by not having a mortgage payment. I'm good.

Going by historical predictive triggers, a drop of 15% from of the all-time high signals the onset of bear.
So, from the current ATH of 21,169, if it gets down (closes) to 18,840 before going higher than 21,169 then it should rebound up about 7-13%, and then go down.
Check April or May 2001 (from high in 2000) and then end of Jan 2008 (from Oct 2007 high) to confirm.
