Speak for yourself. I was happy making 20%+/yr.
ha. I think the people sitting in cash most wanted it and now is their time to put it to use. Now with today's bounce they will feel like gurus and be annoying.

I would love to hear IDFNL's take on the crypto market but he seems to have vacated SF.

It means the world economy has shrank from ~$300B/ to ~$120B since December.

Today will probably end negative, no confidence.

I also agree, 20% annually is great :). I am a dividend reinvestor so technically I prefer moderate prices but I prefer looking at higher prices (on things I already own).

Ha!
Seriously though, this was a weird time for a correction. I get that the threat of interest hikes makes everyone scared, but earnings reports were still good. It just looks like markets are trying to mimic crypto volatility.

weed stocks bounced back hard today. we'll see if it lasts or if it is simply a bull trap. neither would surprise me though buying in yesterday morning would have been amazing for a 48 hours 20-30% gain in many cases.

This is what a section of my watch list looked like today. all CDN tickers.

This is why I dont day trade, hahaha, I'd lose my shirt by the week's end. I agree, I don't really see the threat of interest rates rising 'at a faster than expected pace' as being such a cause for immediate alarm, but I think often times that the explanation is sourced after the fact. Corporate earnings were very good, but the market remained overheated.

I have long thought 2018-2022 would be bloody for the federal budget and markets as the cash flow drain from entitlements accelerates and the rosy assumptions underpinning CBO projections for Medicare/medicaid fail to materialize.

It's a good thing Trump and the Republicans are reducing spending while cutting taxes...
