Have you ever heard the phrase " don't try and catch a falling knife"?

Hmmmm... Then how about "don't fight the tape"?

Me? I'm a gold bug. I believe in the long term erformance of Precious metals... Given the track record of the worlds central bankers, how could you not?

Having said that, I have one more phrase to share with you "an overbought market"

You make the call.

oh no, I am not doing anything soon. I am not trying to catch or time anything. I am just wondering if things are going to correct a bit or if we will hit new highs by the end of the week again.

I am just curious to see what those stocks I was looking at are going to do as well as what the market overall will do.

Dow briefly plunged 140 points following the *fake* AP report that White House was attacked and the President injured (AP twitter got hacked).

You've had a bear-ish tone for some time now. Don't worry, EPP. Easy Money Bernanke got us for now.

What are your thoughts here, kenny? Seems that with easy money Bernanke at the wheel, you'd be better off just parking your money in an ING account and drawing 0.75%.

Or better yet, why not open one of the high-yield checking accounts (one of the good places to start https://www.kasasa.com/cash) and get your guaranteed 2.5+% FDIC insured return? (You just need to remember to make 10 miniscule debit card transactions - like Starbucks coffee purchase - per month.) This is where I park my cash reserves. I don't think a short-term bond ETF can beat that.

Capital One 360 now instead of ING.

I miss the orange, haha.

Sirius XM (SIRI) is climbing fast too. A couple years ago, I bought some at .25, now it's $3.35. If only I had more money back then....

since kenny the kangaroo ignored this issue for about a week now, its worth responding:

Kenny the kangaroo has a bit o' cash chilling in a money market fund that will be needed within the next year or so. obviously there is some risk that the fed will raise interest rates in that time period, but it seems unlikely. and in the event that interest rates do rise, the short term funds should be less effected. a high yield checking account is intriguing, but at the end of the day, kenny the kangaroo is lazy and would rather not go through the effort to create a new account.

anyways, that cash needs to stay safe and even a short term bond fund probably is a little too risky at this point.

What kind of rate of return is KtK getting in said money market account?
(It's pretty low these days, as I recall.)

Just FYI, most of the new accounts on Kasasa Cash can be opened online. It took me less than 10 minutes to do so. After 5 days, you need to sign some forms that come back from the bank and send them the copy of your driver's license. Given how much money I have in there, time well spent.

[Naturally, you need some e-savings account to get the money in-out - like CapitalOne 360, American Express - but I think these days everybody has one.]

For Android users - what is the best app for getting the REAL TIME quotes?

I just migrated from iPhone to Android. Overall, it's a great experience, with one (important) exception. CNBC app - which is unbelievably awesome on iPhone - is a total crap on Android.

I also don't like Bloomberg, because in 2013, they still show delayed quotes only - which is totally unacceptable to me.

So - what is the best non-CNBC, non-Bloomberg option out there?

I'm looking into doing some (non-retirement related) investing in mutual funds.

Stupid question: When do you take the capital gains tax hit? Is it ongoing or just on withdrawal?

there may also be times when you have to pay tax on capital gain distributions. but those are reported on your 1099-div.

Should we really mess him up and tell him about the K-1's you have to file if you invest in a limited partnership? :)
