I wish this thread had more action; we need more capitalists around here. :pop:

lets blame epp for getting himself banned and ruining this thread, because he usually had good points to make in it.

plus, things have been going well at a steady pace more or less all year, not a very interesting year for the market.

this gentleman hasnt been adding much to the market (besides the usual 401k contributions) because of the all time highs. these are the types of times when it takes discipline to hold out from contributing and trying to ride a wave.

It's been a while since the market has dropped this much in 3 hours.

I had the feeling lots of people were looking for a reason to sell off.

I moved my non retirement investments to a conservative fund a couple weeks ago

I bought some more bonds (through re-balancing) on Friday.
Who knows, the market could go up another 10% this year, but you get the feeling that something has to give.

Looks like I picked a good day (Monday) to go all cash :)

Actually sold everything except my twtr stock, wanted to roll the dice on their earnings and sold first thing yesterday morning. I'm never getting back in the market after this stretch of luck.
