    Timing equities markets, I’ve found, is usually a losing proposition. The only thing I’d say here is that if you want to open a position, do it in increments. That’s a good move in up times, absolutely vital in these turbulent times.

    Absolutely Correct.

    I don't recommend other people do it.

    I've been doing a long time ... and that was essentially part of my major in school several decades ago ... so I'm comfortable following the global markets and making moves at certain times.

    So I'm all good .. that's the reason I had already pulled out.

    At this point, technically, in ways an entry is already a "win". If ppl do nothing and ride out this market that means they have to go down before they go up. I've already skipped part of the down so let's say I jump in now (which I'm not going to do). I've already skipped the down and if I bought the same stuff I got out of I'll have more shares, and thus the "up" will be better than if I just held; irrelevant of how much farther it goes down.

    In the past couple years I've refined my trending analysis adding political and .VIX to it. In the past I added incidents like Greece to it, etc etc. All varying dependent upon individual stocks/market segment, vs funds, etc.

    But it's all just fun and games :)

    Heeeeyyyyy, it's the happy anniversary of the Big One ehh? I wish I could find a silver round or bar that commemorates it. I seem to recall that there is an Art Bar commemorating Black Tuesday. I'll have to check my Art Bar book.

    smackdown today in the equities markets

    with a strengthening US Dollar Index

    silver down 7 cents

    Gold is up slightly $2.20, contrarian to the Dollar Index

    and my favorite Platinum down $3. I nearly bought some when it was in the mid $900s going down. LOL but the seller wasn't that motivated to sell .. it's been going down since too.

    I knew I should have bought those contrarian funds a week ago.

    Oh deary, unicorns aren't so frisky lately. Maybe they need some zombie love from the Fed?

    They should have named that zombuck Peter after the Mint mascot who got consumed by a mint press flywheel.

    More like a rendition of Gollum and Smeagol: "everyone hates unicorns."

    " no, no, don't listen..."

    You know the first one who develops a schizophrenic AI computer for forecasting wall street may end up ruling the world.

    They could even have an AI retro robot of Jesse Livermore walking around with a pair of barber shears: "who needs a haircut?"

    What wallstreet needs is: Happy Voices In Your Head Pride Week. Then the dow might go up a thousand points a day for the whole week.

    Not until after the elections and probably not until progress is made on tariff negotiations.

    real quick ... Market is down and PMs

    PPI, which is the "news" today is as the economic indicators are pointing up to inflation. They calculated .6% instead of the estimated .2%

    although the Fed "expects further gradual increases in the target range for the federal-funds rate" they did leave rates steady at 2-2.25%

    US Dollar Index is UP

    and all this is driving SILVER

    and GOLD

    Man .. I might just have to use my CreditCard to get me some PMs and pay it off as my monthly cash surplus went to fix stuff. LOL
