I trust Tracy more than Mr. Zor. I really like the Odd Lots podcast with her and Joe Weisenthal. The Trillion Dollar Coin episodes were quite interesting and funny to say the least.

Some people have been calling for a correction since the day after the Great Recession ended, so they're bound to be right at some point, but it's kind of feeling we're at that point. I'm waiting until January to start playing with more tendies.

I know that will be taken as signs the market is going to crash, but I think this is almost all tax reasons.

Lots of small business owners are trying to sell and are desperate to close by the end of the year because they all think taxes are going up bigly next year.


Nice.

The article indicates tax planning.

Also, that's not really a big number when you consider the set of people it's spread across.

Yes and no on tax being the main driver. Anecdotally, a lot of the very rich are taking some chips off the table.

In same vein -- a good read with some nice graphs for people who like graphs!

Am I not reading the housing graphs correctly? I'm seeing % of disposable income going to mortgages is dropping while prices climb.

My favorite weekly podcast. All four dudes are friends and successful tech founders and investors. They are hinting at a period of pain in the markets as well. Does anyone have any other recs for podcasts?

It has to do with interest rates. A $500K house at higher interest rates could have the same payment as a $750K at a lower interest rate.

I don't even have time for my current list of podcasts that I trimmed down. If I had to recommend 2, EconTalk with Russ Roberts then The Drive with Peter Attia. Russ brings on interesting guests on a broad range of topics then Peter Attia is more of a health related podcast so I don't die early. Extending these bad genes as much as possible.

That's what I was thinking but 2021 has trended up since the low of 2020 and I didn't see the tail for the % of disposable go up. Will go look again.

ETA: % of disposable 2021 dropped vs. 2020. I got nothing.

It could be that people's disposable income is rising faster than that of houses.

Nice day for the Nasdaq. Earlier today a publication I subscribe to said Nasdaq futures were up on easing concerns about Omicron. They could just have easily (and accurately) said futures are up reasons nobody can be entirely sure of. That doesn't sell papers, though. They need to say something.
