    Great Swami (nice handle)

    Being a Boomer I can attest that your analysis is right on the money. Pun intended.

    It is called Marketing.

    Marketing is a contest for peoples attention. It doesn't have to be true. Just grab their attention (money).

    This sell off is a self-fulfilling prophecy. They talk about it for so long it eventually had to happen.

    That is nice, but keep in mind the Shiller PE would have had you out of the market for the past 5 years and missed one of the great bull market in many years. Much has been written about it.

    The data doesn't support the Shiller PE despite the Nobel prize.

    That is one of the nicer allocation charts I have seen. Thank you for the link.
    Cash had the worst 20 year return. No risk - no gain.

    Agree LM,

    Self fulfilling prophecies created by pundits for the media who sell it the unknowing who churn the market and pay commissions which feeds the pundits. Its the circle of life.

    Now the media is talking about "Andrews Pitchfork". Another frightening tag line to scare the populous? A real technical signal? When will it end?

    A strong dollar also helps companies purchase imports and raw materials at a better price.

    Poor analogy.
    Employees can go home but cash stays in the bank losing money.

    Buy muni bonds during a market downturn. They move in the opposite direction of the market during a sell off.

    The uber rich move their money in this manner. Follow them and you will do well.

    Good investing.

    You have it right. Ignore the noise. Watch the macro environment.

    In this low interest rate environment, Cash is the equivalent of having employees on the payroll that are not doing any work.

    As you say, many astute observers have been warning about a pull back in the market. Now we have a "death cross" which is getting a lot of press probably due to the headline appeal of this tag line.

    I often wonder how much of these declines are the result of a self-fulfilling prophecy.
