Maybe the stock market is predicting bad things coming our way with that blue wave.


All I knows is the day I left for my daughter's wedding in CO the market was at it's high and today is my first day back and now look what happened! LOL!


She married that cowboy she always said she would marry (which we all asked her how u gonna find yourself a cowboy in Cali?) and it seems to be a match made in heaven, so I'm happy...…… three girls and three awesome son in laws.


I can thank the crappy economy a decade ago for the two of them being together. Had it not been for the fact she got out of college at a time when teachers were being laid off she wouldn't have ventured to AZ to meet the love of her life.


So...…… about the market...…… Appl.... maybe a trading range or double top? Amazon...… should have got puts on that one when it hit a trillion market cap.

Aw shucks ... looksy look  there

MAGA investing philosophy in a nutshell =>

When market goes up it is because of trump

When it goes down , blame imaginary Democrats

And here I thought you all good ol red blooded Americans were fired up after confirming kavanaugh and had crushed  the blue wave already ?

Market went down , rates unchanged . Why ? I will explain later in the day in  good detail for those who care .

In the meantime - any of the MAGA  investing “experts “ here want to pronounce any theories ?  were their portfolios were up in green yesterday , you know , because they are “active” managers :)

I didn't blame the Dems for the fall yesterday.  I pointed out long ago that interest rates, being driven by inflation, the effect of a very strong economy driven by MAGA, will cause near term volatility and opportunities.  Totally normal and part of our now normalizing business cycle.  hint: if a money manager tells you "your account will go up every day"...run away from that guy.

"Money manager"? Hah, soo early 2000s. If you have money to invest, read, learn, and don't waste money on grifters.

Yes I am sure your Robo advisor is answering phones today....or crashing as they often do.  My clients like the human factor and are more than happy to get what they pay for.

Robo advisor websites crashed, cutting clients off from accounts

Robo advisors haven’t had much experience with market routs. When confronted with one on Monday, they struggled.

The web sites of two of the country’s biggest robo advisors — Wealthfront and Betterment — crashed as the S&P 500 sank 4.1%. Complaints quickly spread across Reddit and other Internet sites from people who had trouble logging onto their accounts. “Really?” wrote @jlpatel23 after he received a message from Wealthfront saying its site was down.

The glitches represent a setback for a niche of the financial market industry that has been booming of late as people have become more comfortable making investment decisions without speaking to human advisors.

Just reallocated my four Oh one Kay

Thought about doing this but I never know when to reallocate back and usually miss the boat.  Figure I'll just ride it out and keep dollar cost averaging into it.

My thought proces: already up this year so let’s see where we go approach. I can always switch back.

some people seem to have short memories when it has come to rate hikes this year.  we'll be back to 26.5k by the end of the month and blasting through 27k when the blue wave comes in low tide.

Nope, you don't need a robo-adviser, or any other type of wealth adviser. Just boring low-cost index funds.
