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.

We were told that this would never happen under Trump.


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

"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.

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.

A few minutes ago I heard a news story that the DOW closed at the lowest point since October 2016.

But it's only down to 20,600ish.

What exactly does the DOW even mean anyways? When I was earning a good living and made a killing in the market the DOW was only around 14,000 back before Obama was in office. 20,000 is bad now...? lol Sounds like some people are making a ton of money while everyone else just keeps doing worse.

IIRC, it it dsomething like this:
The Dow Jones Industrial Average is a group of 30 leading companies, in diversified sectors (so not 10 of them like Apple, Dell, IBM, Cisco, Micro$haft, Acer and others all in one industry). When one company is removed from the DJIA, it is clearly announced. GM used to be one forever, but I think they were removed after their bailout.
Anyhow, the DOW was around 877 points around 1986, following the end of the disastrous Carter Economy. The DOW had never been above 2,000 at that point, IIRC. It had been theorized that DOW 4,000 was an impossibility. 4,000 was surpassed around 1994. In 2000, DOW got to almost 12,000 and came back down to 10,000 by August 2001. After 9/11 it dropped to about 7,300ish. By October 2007 it was up to about 14,000 as the Rock-The-Vote Democrat FY2008 Budget took effect. It dropped to about 5,400 around 9 March 2009. it could have rested in November 2008, but Obama kept campaigning about how he was going to destroy the economy, even after the election.

If you have difficulty comprehending the Stock market, try thinking of it as a popularity contest for companies. Except votes are actually dollars. Some companies are funded merely by the irrational belief of their investors. The investors who have placed the most dollars in the market have the most influence in the prices. The stocks (company shares) with the most demand go up in price, those with less popularity lose value.

I'm not. My stock portfolio is up about 18% since Trump was elected. Corporate earnings remain strong, but as we've seen before, things can turn ugly real fast. Best way to protect your investment and your profits is with stop-sell orders. If prices rise you can adjust the threshold upwards. If prices drop, your sell order kicks in and your loss is minimized.

You guys are so full of shit. Your investments my ass. You act as though Trump saved us all. He's riding on Obamas' success. When President Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was 7,949.09. As of the end of Obama's term on January 20, 2017, the Dow was 19,732.40

Obama's success? I guess that's one way to look at it.

We already established a few months ago that under 8 years of Obama that corporate profits went up nearly 60% after inflation while the average American take home pay decreased about 40%.

I guess with Obama's success you didn't feel that drop in pay as much if you had a lot in a diversified portfolio.


A majority of us don't look at the DOW as a good benchmark to test a presidents success... at least not alone.

The fact the DOW is still going up and nothing else is really changing is a cause of concern to me.

Obama's "success" - for koolaid drinkers.

On Oct 12, 2007 - just before the Rock The Vote Democraps who took majority of the House had their disastrous first budget take full effect (FY2008) - Dow closed 14,093. Bush had been in office for 6 years.
On Nov 4, 2008 - Election Day - Dow closed at 9,625. A drop of 32% in 13 months that the Rock The Vote Democraps can take credit for.
On Nov 5, 2008 - Black Wednesday, when the results were learned (American voters chose the path of further economic disaster) - Dow closed at 9,139. A drop of 5% in one day which Bobo can take credit for.
By Jan 19, 2009 the impending doom had driven the Dow to 8,279 at close - a drop of another 9.5% since Nov 5 (76 days). Bobo can take credit for this.
On Jan 20, 2009 the Dow dropped another 4% in this single day. A drop of 17.5% since the day of the election. Bobo can take credit for this also.
On Mar 9, 2009 the Dow closed at 6,547. A drop of 21% in Bobo's first 48 days in office. Yep, Obama can take credit for this also. Total of 32% loss since Election Day, matching the loss of a whole year of Democraps in charge (with only Bush43 to reign them in). And a loss of 53% in only 1 year, 4 months since Democraps took control of the Fed Budget.

On November 2, 2010 - Election Day - the Dow closed at 11,188. It had crept up 1,563 points since Obama was elected. Or 16% in 2 years. This is the rate of growth that Bobo could take credit for. Still 2,905 less than before Democraps had taken control of the Federal Budget.
On 27 Jan, 2011 - when the new Congress had taken their seats, discharging the Democrap majorities - Dow closed at 11,989. A gain of 801 points in only 3 months since the election, and only a few weeks in office - despite Bobo still occupying the White House. Can't see Bobo taking credit for the GOP's gains - oops, that's right, Bobo did take credit where not due.

By Jan 20, 2017 - with 6 years of GOP control of Congress, the Dow had gained 76%, despite Bobo still occupying the White House.
By Jun 19, 2017 the Dow achieved 21,535. A gain of 1,803 point and over 9% in only the first 5 months of Trump taking office.

US citizens are in a contest with everyone against everyone. It’s the Grand Melee. It’s a giant dog fight where the big dogs take money from the little dogs. Don’t you wish there was a referee to rule on the fairness of this fight? It is not the President because the Federal government has not been given much power by the Constitution, the Congress, or the Supreme Court to be a referee in this contest, but that doesn’t mean the President and his regulators are completely useless to the economy. Well . . . Bush was helpless. Obama was useful. Check it out:

We know which President started two multi-trillion dollar wars, do we not? "We’ve spent $6 trillion" on the wars in the Middle East.
— Donald Trump on Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 in a rally in Charlotte, N.C.

id-us-spend-6-trillion-middle-east-wars
/
Those are dollars that could have been spent on you, making your life easier.

(On January 26, 2016, the national debt held by the public was $13.62 trillion. Intragovernmental holdings stood at $5.34 trillion for the Medicare Trust Fund and the Social Security Trust Fund. Trump's estimate of $6 trillion for Bush's Wars is a large percent of the total debt.)

You can trace down which President did what to make things better or worse for the National Economy, but Presidents don't typically use their power to fix an individual’s life, to give them a big gift of cash. That is what your local friends are for. And when your friends fail to help you, find better friends.

Yeah, let's check it out. Here is a Libtard version of what I already laid out in the above post. Back before Obama, the U.S. was a global economic leader (amazing how many forget that now), and when the Rock The Vote Democraps put us into a tailspin, the related global economies also suffered. Economies not related to ours did not suffer so much.

And here we have more Libtard spin factory output, almost believable if you have it spoon-fed to you. It lists 6 "Causes" of the Libtard's Rock The Vote Recession. #1 was more Libtard spindoctor gibberish from Democrap Carl Levin, making excuses he hopes you will gobble up. #2 was the FCIC aka the Phil Angelides Report - yes, the same Libtard Democrap Treasurer of CA who wreaked destruction on the CA economy - many have heard of his results as "Gray-out Davis." #3 was the 1999 repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act - and yes, the Bubbadent in 1999 was Clinton. #4 is the faulty mortgage practices of Obama's ACORN progect, forcing the economic sector to suffer his racist policies. #5 is a vague generalization of the other listed Libtard excuses. #6 is further actions regarding "Fair Value Accounting" relating to mortgage valuation in an attempted correction to Obama's ACORN practices.

Correct. Good Presidents use their power to fix the economy, to allow you to grow your liberty, happiness, wealth if you are willing to try.

On Jan 20, 2009 the Dow dropped another 4% in this single day. A drop of 17.5% since the day of the election. Bobo can take credit for this also.
On Mar 9, 2009 the Dow closed at 6,547. A drop of 21% in Bobo's first 48 days in office. Yep, Obama can take credit for this also. Total of 32% loss since Election Day, matching the loss of a whole year of Democraps in charge (with only Bush43 to reign them in). And a loss of 53% in only 1 year, 4 months since Democraps took control of the Fed Budget.

On November 2, 2010 - Election Day - the Dow closed at 11,188. It had crept up 1,563 points since Obama was elected. Or 16% in 2 years. This is the rate of growth that Bobo could take credit for. Still 2,905 less than before Democraps had taken control of the Federal Budget.
On 27 Jan, 2011 - when the new Congress had taken their seats, discharging the Democrap majorities - Dow closed at 11,989. A gain of 801 points in only 3 months since the election, and only a few weeks in office - despite Bobo still occupying the White House. Can't see Bobo taking credit for the GOP's gains - oops, that's right, Bobo did take credit where not due.

By Jan 20, 2017 - with 6 years of GOP control of Congress, the Dow had gained 76%, despite Bobo still occupying the White House.
By Jun 19, 2017 the Dow achieved 21,535. A gain of 1,803 point and over 9% in only the first 5 months of Trump taking office.

DOW closed yesterday at 21,637.
Good thing Jump Out JO left at 20K.


That is a gain of 3,305 since Election Day. Also, Election Day had DOW Volume under 80,000,000. The next day, when results were learned, volume doubled, and started hanging out in that range. On Dec 5 volume doubled again, and hasn't dropped below 100,000,000 since. On Jun 16, 2017 volume was 603,000,000.

Some people don't even remember this. Before Obamination, The U.S. Economy was a world leader. The Dow and other benchmarks of the Stock Market were controlled by the Free World, The Free Market, Free Enterprise.
Under Obamanomics, the Stock Market and economy have become the dog getting wagged by the tail. For years whenever Bobo declared he would destroy the economy the MSM proclaimed that the resulting economic hit (loss of Market value) was because somebody burped in Turkey, or somebody passed wind in Germany, and such nonsense. It went on for so long that enough investors started to believe the fantasies of the MSM. This was the same MSM that kept telling investors to stay in the market in 2008, the whole year, so they could lose half of their money, their life's savings, their life's work.
Obamanomics has created a surreal view of how market forces work, and denies that actual market forces have any bearing.

"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....

Yup. we have Obama to thank for his great leadership.

He saved us from the failure and disaster that was Bush.

Sometimes it is difficult to determine if you failed to point out the sarcasm mode and you can comprehend. Or if you're just dumb.

And 21,796 today. Almost 9% total gain since 20K. Which was 6 months ago. Like an 18% annual gain.
That's more than Bobo could accomplish in his first 2 years, without GOP propping him up in Congress - despite it being the easiest period for economic recovery, and this now being the most difficult period for gains.
