JSF, I understand what you're saying: You need to "time the market" and pick the fast-risers and then switch to the "slow risers" after having make your investment at or near bottom.

Just a couple of comments and questions- wondering about your response.

1) Why pick a fund that will drop "only" 15% when you can have your $$$ in a guaranteed account that will lose no money at all? May as well have your money is a bank account which will only lose about 2% per year (inflation) and then buy stocks at an opportune time.

2) The stocks that I thought about buying the last financial lockup were bank stocks, since they took a real beating. Any reason not to buy bank stocks again?

3) These cycles have a tendency to run for 15 years. So the drop will be sudden but the rise will overall be much slower. A doubling or tripling of value over 15 years is great, but it's still only 10-15% per year ... which is great(!) but needs to be kept in perspective. So don't expect to double your money in three years. Agreed?

4) There are other investment classes "out there" besides stocks, including bonds, real estate/rental property/ farmland, currencies, precious metals, and commodities. (At this point I would not recommend buying stocks, real estate, or bonds until after a significant correction.)

I worry that we may not be seeing a "usual" stock market crash but that we may be moving into an entirely different investment realm of currency crisis, which will be signalled by a yield inversion. PHYSICAL DELIVERED GOLD (not "paper gold" or gold mining stocks) is the normal safe-haven for a currency crisis, but purchasing depressed actual foreign currency/bonds (eg Turkish lira/bonds) may be a good alternate strategy. Thoughts?

5) You seem reluctant to name funds names. It sure would be nice if you could let us in on the actual results of all of that research!

5. Are you or kiki Government Employees, or is TSP your Retirement Program? No need to look it up, you would know if it was.

Most of the funds I checked I don't have the info. I might have some, from the family of about 170 after being reduced from about 450. These were from the Growth group, I think: JETSX, dodgx, jfivx, fcntx. For not losing during Bear: dipsx. Flmvx, jecix were rapid rebounders following deep loss. Ugsdx, cgtax were not available to us. Jilcx, pkc or pkcix would have been desirable, but the Union had removed them from our access.


1. Retirement Accounts. I think I was focusing on Tax-Deferred accounts, like 401K. If you can find funds allowed (by Law, or IRS) in a Retirement Account, which cost no fees to transfer among them, I would say go for it. The Fund Families giving the biggest kickbacks to companies have quite restrictive fund variety and seem heavily reliant upon lame Stock Funds.
Most companies offering "Matching" contributions require they go into these fund families, they don't just go into your bank account. Once they go into the fund of your choice, you control the transfers from one fund to another.
So naming these highly restrictive fund names would likely not apply to anybody else, since they would not have those fund names available.


2. Same as #1, I think. Unless I am misunderstanding, or you elaborate further.

3. I see many claim that the cycles are normally 7-8 years. I have no need to disagree there.
In 2001 the Dow bounced up to around 11,000 in May or June, back down to 10,000 in August, and then bottomed out in 2002 or maybe 2003. IIRC that was around 7,300ish. Market returned to 12,000 (new Record All-Time High) around 2005 or 2006, I think. So that is 2-4 years to return to prior levels. It dropped about 39%, and then gained 164% from the low point.
In 2007, Dow peaked at 14,000 in October, at the onset of the Rock-The-Vote Recession. It slid down to about 4,900 on 9 March 2009. This is a drop of about 65%. I think the Market recovered to 14,000 in 2013ish while Obamanomics labored to slow down and drag out any recovery. This is a gain of 286% in a period of 3-4 years. Then Election Day 2016 was a bit under 19,000 - or a 30% gain in about 3 Years. Then to 26,828 in Sept or Oct 2018, so about another 43% gain in less than 2 years. So the 9 year gain from 2009 to Sept was over 450%.
I don't see how I could agree with your claim, other than the 2001 Bear did not fall 50%, so mere recovery could not double the value.
Maybe you are not hearing the same categories of gain which I was talking about. Bear Market means loss, so exit to avoid loss (or get minor gains while everybody else loses). Recovery, gaining from deep loss to the same level of the prior All-Time High (this is practically guaranteed, quick, easy, no risk - except for Obamanomics strangling the recovery). Fresh, new, Record All-Time High territory gains - setting new milestones without dropping more than 15% (this is the most work, the most uncertainty, the most risk, the hardest to achieve).

4. First paragraph. Same as #1 I think, unless you elaborate otherwise.

Second paragraph. This is manipulating and finagling within the umbrella of Tax-Deferred Retirement Accounts. If the $US becomes the Wehrmacht, everybody has a lot more to worry about than a few gains here or there. To envision stability, how long has it been since the $US collapsed. The Rock-The-Vote Recession and Obamanomics generated more unemployment than the Great Depression, 80-90 years ago. So is the currency likely to remain stable for the remainder of your Retirement/Life, or not? You had a right/responsibility to educate the generation behind, and clearly we all failed, but the reverberations after you are gone are their problems which they already made their bed for.



If you were trying to concentrate on Retirement non-Tax-Deferred Accounts, then I would ask you this: if you pull out 10k in retirement, what would be your Income Tax on it (likely poverty level Taxes)? If you put 10k in your Retirement fund while you and your husband are both employed, what would be your Income Tax on it (Marginal Tax Rate)?

I have not seen a response to my final question.

Dow closed Friday at 22,445. This is 16.3% off the Record All-Time High.

For those who have been trying to follow:
In the history of the Dow, this signals a Bear Market.
The last 2 times the Dow closed below 15% of it's current Record All-Time High were April 2001 and the end of January 2008.

If today's Market follows the historic model, then it will rebound for a bit, up to a range of 90% (24,145) to 95% (25,487) of the Record High. After that, it will fall down, most likely to 70% (18,778) or 40% (10,728) of the Record High.

In 2001, the bounce occurred during May and June, then declined in July. It got back down to 15% (10,000 Dow) in August. May is when I tried to get out, and I told my co-workers to do so as well. That was when the NYSE was a Pit, transfers done on paper.
In 2008, the transfers were done by computers, which are much faster than shouting humans. There was concern or uncertainty if the historic several months of bounce would be replaced with weeks or even days before the decline. I got out at the beginning of February 2008. But the bounce lasted thru Feb, March, and I think April, before the decline which ended on 9 March 2009.

So, if you believe in this model and the Bear has now been triggered, the Dow should bounce up 2-3,000 points, and then drop.
If you do not believe in this model and Bear has already been triggered before, then the Dow will continue to drop another 15-50% (4,025 - 13,414 points) from this point.

To be clear, I personally have no doubt that Bear Market is triggered. The only question is whether the bounce up is about to happen, or not -meaning the slide into Bear is already occurring right now.

So, the choice is this, for those in the Market: (1) if the bounce up is about to occur, you will be able to regain about 5-10% of your prior value, before selling and letting the stocks drop in value while you are not invested in them, or (2) sell now, absorbing the 16% loss as of Friday, and not worry about regaining 5-10% of value, but preventing further loss of surely at least another 15% of peak value and perhaps 50% more (which is 60% of current value).

After the Market bottoms out, you should then buy in at the cheap prices.


It looks like the Teen and Pothead Voters got their wish already, with the Market not waiting too long to respond.


In the past year, Dow has not closed below 23,500. Has not closed below 24,000 since May, until this past week.

There was some concern that Obamanomics had broken the historical model.

But today confirms the bounce, and conforms to the historical model.

To be clear, I have no doubt that Bear Market has been triggered. I do not know if the current bounce will get to 25,500 or if it will last for a couple months, weeks, or days.
When Dow gets to 24,200 I will transfer out of stocks. This means that if the Market drops 15-50%, I will avoid that loss. Also, if the Market does not drop but achieves a new Record All-Time High, then I will miss out on that 11% gain. If that is the case, I will buy back in at the new Record All-Time High.

Dow closed today at 24,207. This is 9.8% off the Record All-Time High.

There we go. This is my cue.

Dow closed Thursday at 25,169.

Dow closed Friday at 25,106.


If the Dow continues to follow the historical model, this past Tuesday could be the peak of the bounce. So this could be one of those key critical moments for decisions, or conclusions.
If the Market drops from here, this was the maximum profit-taking point. If the Market climbs from here to a new All-Time High, then being out of the Market until then cements a loss of another 5% of gain.

Some here explain money isn't real, but what is the purpose of missing out on easy money?

You would have gotten 10% of that free money by buying at the end of December, and then selling this past week. 10% of whatever you put in sounds like fairly free money to me, in only about 5 weeks. That is a rate of about 100% - 157% APR.

Meh...

They just eliminated the HR department where I work this week. The "old timers" are shitting themselves right now because of how much more they get paid then the new guys like me. Tons of policy changes have just happened that seem designed just to catch people in a fireable offense.

I'm not worried about it, since I'm the best there is and I make the absolute minimum pay. I don't blame the others for being worried though. There's no way they'll make that kind of money they're making right now anywhere else.



The economy sucks. Nobody gives a shit about your DOW.

Dow closed Friday at 22,445. This is 16.3% off the Record All-Time High.

For those who have been trying to follow:
In the history of the Dow, this signals a Bear Market.
The last 2 times the Dow closed below 15% of it's current Record All-Time High were April 2001 and the end of January 2008.

If today's Market follows the historic model, then it will rebound for a bit, up to a range of 90% (24,145) to 95% (25,487) of the Record High. After that, it will fall down, most likely to 70% (18,778) or 40% (10,728) of the Record High.

In 2001, the bounce occurred during May and June, then declined in July. It got back down to 15% (10,000 Dow) in August. May is when I tried to get out, and I told my co-workers to do so as well. That was when the NYSE was a Pit, transfers done on paper.
In 2008, the transfers were done by computers, which are much faster than shouting humans. There was concern or uncertainty if the historic several months of bounce would be replaced with weeks or even days before the decline. I got out at the beginning of February 2008. But the bounce lasted thru Feb, March, and I think April, before the decline which ended on 9 March 2009.

So, if you believe in this model and the Bear has now been triggered, the Dow should bounce up 2-3,000 points, and then drop.
If you do not believe in this model and Bear has already been triggered before, then the Dow will continue to drop another 15-50% (4,025 - 13,414 points) from this point.

To be clear, I personally have no doubt that Bear Market is triggered. The only question is whether the bounce up is about to happen, or not -meaning the slide into Bear is already occurring right now.

So, the choice is this, for those in the Market: (1) if the bounce up is about to occur, you will be able to regain about 5-10% of your prior value, before selling and letting the stocks drop in value while you are not invested in them, or (2) sell now, absorbing the 16% loss as of Friday, and not worry about regaining 5-10% of value, but preventing further loss of surely at least another 15% of peak value and perhaps 50% more (which is 60% of current value).

After the Market bottoms out, you should then buy in at the cheap prices.


It looks like the Teen and Pothead Voters got their wish already, with the Market not waiting too long to respond.


In the past year, Dow has not closed below 23,500. Has not closed below 24,000 since May, until this past week.

Since 24 December I have sold out of the stocks.

I had considered that if the Dow closed above 26,200 then the historical model might be not being followed.

I have not seen this situation before. I am considering buying back into the Market. Which could be dumb, if the Market does go Bear. Or it could be smart but late, if the Market goes Bull.

Just posting this to keep followers up to date. Your own decisions and expectations may be in flux as well.

I'd recommend staying out. Not because I have any crystal ball. You might well lose a lot of potential gains if you follow my advice.

I just wouldn't put any faith in historical performance anymore. Obama's huge bank bailouts and quantitative easing threw historical performance out the window. None of that money has helped any of the working class, and the standard of living has not increased for the average American. All of that money went into speculation in the DOW.

To further the argument that historical performance means nothing, we're now neck deep in the new global economy where a dog can fart in China and spin the whole thing out of control. There is less ability to predict the future now than there ever was.

Where I work, everything is in chaos. Management is trying to hold it together, but the Six Sigma men have come 'a knockin'. I've seen this all before twice in my lifetime. The management of my store have had their cushy jobs for 20 to 30 years and have been completely insulated from this until now. I honestly would be quite surprised if any of them remain with the company by this time next year.


One of the management who I think quite highly of, was telling me all of the changes happening at his level. They removed nearly all of the computers from the entire store and gave the management smartphones; the idea being that a manger should never be sitting in the office and always be out on the floor. He said, "we've all got to adapt or die". I know he's shitting bricks right now and is probably so far in debt that losing his job would be akin to dying in a lot of ways, and I like the guy, so I refrained from telling him that "well.. you've got to adapt or die. All I have to do is find another shitty part time job if I don't like what's coming.".


Things aren't going to be getting any better. They're only bound to get worse. The DOW Jones is not at all a reflection of how well businesses and commerce in general are doing.

My advice to everybody would be to start downsizing, focusing on making sure that you have the "needs" covered for you and yours and learn live without the "wants", before they're not even an option anymore.

There's a storm on the horizon.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Yes, there has been a concern that Obamanomics has broken the historical patterns.


Been a bit since you updated us on your workplace. Harder to keep track when you divide up the posts between threads.


You may have heard that Shopko has failed, closing every single store.
I also noticed OfficeMax/OfficeDepot is closing stores.

Yeah. I haven't talked about work much recently, but everything has been in flux for a few months now. I like to maintain a positive outlook on things, and really talking about work when I'm not there isn't good for that.

I also don't want to be talking too much about things because I'm hesitant to say anything that would indicate where I do work. I don't know who gives the massive amount of views of some of our threads here, considering that there are only a dozen or so posters these days. I don't know the in's and outs of the rules and regulations talking about the goings on in the workplace on social media, and don't want to bring any unnecessary complications to my life by overstepping any of them needlessly.

They've done such a great job keeping things a secret from the peons that nobody really knows whats going on. Hell, for all I know, I might show up to work one night and the doors are closed for good. That thought has been stuck in the back of my mind every time I go back to work for a few months now.

Most of the people I work with have never been through this or seen anything like this first hand. They're either old dogs on top who have never had anything to worry about before, they're low level guys and gals around my age or a little older who have just been there forever and never really had any other ambitions, or they're young'ns who don't have much other job experience.

So I've tended to keep most of this to myself. I'm not helping anybody I work with on any level by sharing my prior experiences with this. Nothing I say could change things for the better for anybody, and I don't get any personal satisfaction for being the bearer of bad news.

All I can do at this point is just try to maintain a positive attitude about it all, clock in on time, try not to take work home with me and hope for the best.

I feel bad for those who have to "adapt or die". I honestly do. I'm so lucky that I did right and don't really have to worry about anything. I'm just a little sad when I think that I finally found something I really enjoy doing and it might not be around for much longer.

This is a worrisome development. This is most likely going to continue to climb, to a new Record All-Time High. That's what I think.
I have already bought back in to the Market, meaning I missed out on at least 5% of gains.

This seems to confirm that the historical pattern, model, template has been broken. There are other factors indicating whether the Markets will gain or lose. Including Investor Sentiment, where investors feeling the Market will gain means the Market will fall, and vice versa. But this was the sole model that I used to avoid losses in 2001 and 2008.
It is possible that Obamanomics merely distorted the patterns, stretched out the figures from extended stagnation. But going forward from this point, we won't know what the new pattern will be like.
