    I would also say while you may be right about overall trends, we could be talking about timeframes in the hundreds of years. Since that is longer than your or my lifetime, it may be a losing trade for us in the here and now.

    Thank you!

    Ned Davis said: "Do you want to be right or do you want to make money?" I am always trying to get better in order to do the latter. Have made some mistakes along the way. Will surely make more going forward. But hopefully get more right than wrong.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Valid point. Can't argue with the population decline in developed countries.

    But how do you make it pay in the market? Very hard to do IMO.

    Well said. And that's the other side of the coin and why I have been bearish.

    What I am trying to find is the right balance and for me that is becoming less bearish - though by no means am I a raging bull.

    Further, I think it is very hard to make money on the short side. It is one thing to be in cash and another to be short. Shorting is very tough and that has been a hard learned lesson.

    Great comment Tom.

    I also found Niederhoffer's book somewhat overly clever. But the stuff on short selling resonated with me.

    Congratulations on your investment success. I hope I will be experiencing more of that going forward.

    No doubt this market is crazy. I think you have to give it the benefit of the doubt since all corrections have been resolved to the upside and 1600/50 DMA held which was textbook technically. That said, if you read "How To Play A Stock Market Bubble", I will be taking profits and reevaluating at regular intervals.

    Thanks for reading.

    So far so good on DXJ. I was long Japan and got out before the correction. Back in and added quite a bit on Thursday.

    I also looked at the calls but the premiums seemed high to me. Will take another look as I'd like to get some leverage on the position as well.

    Thanks for reading.

    I think I understand: If you invert the chart, you would say "Buy". That's what you're getting at?

    Right: It's never different. And I think we're close too.
