The loudest callers of the recession are those with big portfolio drawdowns. Maybe, just maybe the stock market is not the economy?
Sam Ro had an interesting article about this exactly - something alone the lines of S&P 500 is majority 'goods' , while GDP and 'the economy' is more about services (what we do with those goods)

JEPI and LTC, those monthly dividend stocks I moved 100k each into prior to the market decline, are not disappointing. JEPI is basically flat for me but has been paying out 1.1% dividend per month, and LTC has been paying about .6% dividend per month but is up 22% for me.

I should have remortgaged the house at 80% LTV back when rates were low. :(

I deeply regret not taking out money when I refied at 2.625 in Nov 2020.

I do not. I'm quite happy knowing that if TSHTF I could just stop working tomorrow. Might not be the retirement I wanted but it'll still be financially secure.

Then if you use that to create a margin account to buy 3x leveraged funds, you're at 5x leverage and ready to really make money. I suggest maybe putting some into crypto: that stuff has been in the news a lot lately, so I think it is ready to make some real moves.
