    I believe Humtee was set up as a joke... It's no joke as far as the results show.

    I am going to sit back and watch next week to see if the selling continues. Here i thought that the third year of a POTUS term was suppose to be a good year ..

    September will be an interesting month ..

    If the market has another 15% drop you don't expect any panic selling?

    I am sorry, i disagree with you.

    EA

    I actually posted it when we started PC3 . But in RLP i am almost 100% in cash. Not going to bore you with my story but every dollar counts.

    I lean more towards you as far as buy and hold vs trading. But ultimately the first question i ask myself if this is realistic to continue.

    I hold the opinion that as of now the markets were bought by some people who felt they had no choice. That's scary !

    I plan on opening a portfolio with DGI as the theme. What better time to do it then after we had a 10% correction. So come Monday i might be adding a new one, then sit back and see how it does,,

    Learning can be fun !!

    Folks

    Possible 500 point down day ! Here is MY tough decision to make.. Closing in on 60 years old i read JBT saying he'll take the dividends .

    This is no knock on any one. But when prices fall this fast and lets say i am down 9%. Should i find comfort in dividends ? I personally don't..

    How long would i have to wait until i break even if i bought in last year ? The market is down ALL year. We are close to a 10% correction. Will we grind lower ?

    Many at my age do not have that extra decade to make back what i would have lost. That is why i am glad this is a 2 year practice session.

    Many call me a doom and gloomer. I call myself a realist. The market was clearly overbought, even grandma was FORCED to buy stocks to try and get some sort of return.

    The "IT FIB" clearly stated that this day was coming , and if i was off by a couple of years , oh well sorry i am not that good. But look at gold.. The miners are up close to 20% if i heard correctly.

    Gold is holding up pretty well. i AM GUESSING the FED missed the boat raising interest rates. Now here is one from left field....CAN WE SEE QE4 NEXT YEAR ?

    USER.....What BDC would you look at right now. I have read MAIN has a big exposure to oil..Oil broke BELOW $40 as i expected..

    So in summary my game plan is working out as i had planned. I ALWAYS say i cannot pick the exact year things will happen, no one can. Sure i was laughed at with my position.

    But now sitting in cash and some physical does it really look so bad ??

    Financially the worlds economies are a mess. Unemployment rats are dropping but a new report states MORE people are pulling out of the labor force. So what's really going on?

    That is what drives me to either invest or sit it out. Funny, but then i look at buying a racehorse it's almost the same scenario. The horse might look good today but will it beak down soon?

    I think the markets aren't just correcting, i see a much worse scenario.. Again, i can't put a clock on it. But if the dividends make yo sleep better then i have to disagree.

    I wonder how many are looking at their RLP right now and find comfort in the dividend angle? I would not ! I posted about a year ago i went mainly to cash, and it seems that i didn't miss much.

    16.5K HAS ALREADY BEEN BREACHED. I AM SURE WE ALSO HAVE SOME PANIC SELLING ADDING TO THIS QUICK OF A SELL OFF...

    I could have stayed in the PC3 and let the shorts continue, but in real life i would have sold , so i have to try and follow what i would do in REAL LIFE..

    I guess you get my position. Try telling your wife your down close to 10% for the year but wait until the dividends hit. Then the next question would be how much annually is the dividends? Once i say it's about 3 % would i be shown the door???

    So whose buying the dip :)

    THOUGHTS ????

    FOLKS, I JUST SOLD ALL MY SHORTS AND WILL SIT WITH CASH AS THE "IT FIB" FIGURES OUT THE NEXT MOVE.

    DEAD CAT BOUNCE SEEMS TO BE THE MESSAGE RIGHT NOW..

    Goal was a double digit gain sometime this year , got it pretty quickly , so not sure what to do next.. Will explore some BDC'S that will kick off some decent dividends..But which ones??

    FLYING UNDER THE RADAR FRIDAY !!

    1) North Korea defcon 5 !!

    2) China the worst in close to 7 years !

    3) The FED ain't raising rates !

    4) FOOTBALL is back !

    Still waiting for the pumps to reflect the oil prices. What's up with that ?

    5) TWO TRILLION DOLLARS LOST WITHIN DAYS !

    Do we get a dead cat bounce today? Does China try to stimulate their economy or is the gig up?

    Stay safe and watch for those bridge jumpers.... Why you ask ? Well the "IT FIB" is now calling for 16.5k DOW by the end of the year at 92% probability !! and gold will approach $1300 by years end..

    Watch gun manufacturers as a solid play. More and more are joining the unemployment ranks and are exhausting their benefits before they even blink !!

    This isn't changing course anytime soon.. I think ??

    I just was a few years ahead on giving out my advice.. Patience and the FED'S manipulation is coming to an end.

    Now now now... What makes you think this is a flash in the pan gain??

    Everything is finally coming together.. Still sticking to that double digit gain by the end of the year? Hell i might be there in a week and then will go to all cash.

    Oh, the ribbon is in the mail ;)

    Looks like your run might be over. Should stick with C'S picks !!

    Jeff can't hold a candle to the "IT FIB" !!

    Trump shirts and golf hats might be going on sale this weekend. Please ask for a free catalog.

    Meanwhile Hillary "mini servers" are being manufactured as we speak. No it's not little people bringing you dinner:)

    The "IT FIB" has warned all to watch gold and silver creep a northward path as it has been doing for the past 2 weeks...
