I feel really bad for NFLX investors. They did well on earnings and the stock popped north of 14% at one point.

Now they're down 5%. What terrible timing.

At least I'm happy for my dad. He's short NFLX lol.

I woke up at 6 this morning to help a friend with a Series A pitch deck review. I'm tempted to just put a note on it saying 'just give up' and send it back to him.

Bought another slug of VTI at $93. I've been fortunate to DCA but maybe I should have been more patient to start buying. I guess I will hold tight to see where things go but will be hard not to buy more at $90. Price is now down almost 20% from peak. I bought more XLE a few days ago and it's already more than 5% down from there but I will probably sit on that position.

EDIT: added more at $92.

I plan on deploying the cash in Mrs. Piob's new 457 account. She's only been paying into it for a few months, so only a few grand, but think it's time to drop that into a nice index (have to pick which one but probably S&P) and move her new deposits to autobuy it too.

What possible scenarios could cause an actual meltdown at this point? China numbers are already out, oil price shock is starting to wear off, US economy seems stable. Junk bond crash? War? Trump wins the presidency?

Obama declares he's "fixed" the economy again? (@the shah, too much? laugh.gif)

High yield market already crashed last year FYI, not a whole lot of liquidity there.  Oil price shock is not going to wear off anytime soon with continued lack of demand.  Will probably need some shale drilling bankruptcies and increased demand to wipe off excess supply/inventories; the latter is fairy tale land and the former might cause domino effects.

 

Market crashing will boost Trump's chance to win presidency.  Or Sanders nomination.

Any insight on EXXI would be appreciated, specifically if anyone thinks they'll be able to withstand this price war or if they'll go under. I'm in way too much because of buying dips and it just keeps on dropping.

Luckily I only own it in my play money account, so the losses aren't too devastating to my overall financial wellbeing.
