And just like then, I'm buying way too early. I've put more money into the market in the last two days then most Americans have period. I'm taking a break for the next 7 mins.

"This whole.. I have XX company so my pee pee is 2" longer talk is hilarious. Who cares what company is cheapest, best, etc. Pick the company and plan you want and keep it to yourself."

Wish I had sold apple with a 60% gain instead of watching it fall to a 17% gain. Gave away a lot of paper gains and now pondering its next move.

Ain't this great?! The day after I reallocate my portfolio to almost 40% mid cap growth is when the market decides to take a dive...

nah, too many years of propaganda about not market timing .... there is a battleship of money that is not going anywhere ..... the market is being taken down in preparation for the next rally

eventually, a real crash will come ... but my guess is that it will look different than this

At best, the DOW will break 14K. Then we finish off the year -7%

(note: internet quesses are just rambling bullshit anyway)
