Is it time to get out of the market?

I think that we already have seen that jump today. No?

I agree that the ball got rolling overnight, I expect even more when it passes, although it may be temporary.

I don't see it lasting beyond a day.  It will be an impulse.  The reality is that the numbers are going to get worse over the next couple of weeks and things will get real.  It will continue to erode confidence enough that people will sell off.  We are not at the bottom.

This is when the idiots buy back in. They start losing money again and sell by Friday. I'm still staying on the sidelines. When I jump back in I'm going to average in hard.

If congress passes this stimulus the market will jump.  Keep a close eye on it and try to jump in before it passes. 

Impossible with all the insider trading from Congress.  I'm sure they all call their hedgefund buddies before the vote

Is anyone still in? Not individual stocks, but 401k’s etc? It has to come back at some point, but this ride must suck. Now the hard part is figuring when to get back in. 

Dude... I missed the first -12%.. but caught a bit of it.  It suuuuucks... but days like today.. gotta be in for them.  Miss out on these days is bad...

Well, that was awesome. Waiting for the chart guys to give me an idea of the exit point on this bear market rally. One day rallies are useless to suck in the weak longs. They gotta make this look real and pump it to at least 2600. 2700 would be fantastic.

I remember when the market moving 2% was a big deal.  Those were the days.

I think its time to get out of the supermarket

 

If I was to buy anything right now it would be Kroger and other true supermarkets (Not Walmart or target like stores.)

Could be a dead cat bounce... but it's been a decent recoop of $41k the last two days.

My buddy pays a high priced FA he speaks with every morning...  says theres a pretty decent feeling we MAY have scraped the bottom.  Lots of buying ops for long and short....

This is now a recession market drop.

The 2000 recession took like 30 months to bottom.  The 2008 crash took 17 months.  This has been a couple weeks.  It would be amazing if we've already bottomed.  Could be, but, history says it won't stop until 2022.  Then again this is a very strange situation.   If you wanted to measure from the first *crash* instead of the top, then from the september 2008 crash to the bottom was about 6 months.  From the sept/oct 2000 crash to the bottom was about 27 months (and that included compounding events like 911 and disarray over the buildup to invasion of Iraq in 2003).   But there's another lesson there.  *New* unforseen complications can arise going forward that can drive the markets even lower and into new crashes just like 2001 and 2002.  What if widespread looting in the US breaks out?  What if civil unrest in the US breaks out?  What if China and Russia use the crisis to get super aggressive politically and militarily? 

 

My recession strategy has always been this:

1.  Recessions mean that there will be some major ETFs / indicies / stocks that will (at *some* point) lose 99% of their value. 
2.  Therefore, watch a basket of big ones.
3.  Whenever one of them loses 99% of their value, buy a bunch of it.

Let's see what's on the slate for this week.

  1. New Home Sales - 3/24
  2. Mortgage Applications - 3/25
  3. Crude Oil inventories - 3/25
  4. Unemployment Claims - 3/26
  5. Retail inventories - 3/26
  6. GDP Estimate - 3/26

There ain't nothing but bad news coming this week.  It just depends on if the numbers are better than feared at this point.

Unemployment is going to be the real interesting one.  If it's below 525k, we'll be fine.  If it's something like 550k or above, I wouldn't be surprised if we close down 10% on just Thursday/Friday.

 

Better make that unemployment number closer to 4 million to make things go south.

Our Treasury Secretary says today's 3M + claims are irrelevant.  The markets seem to agree today.

Listen boys.. this thing could obviously go an entirely different way today.... but I gotta say... I'm loving the sustainability of three fairly big green days in a row.

Amen

3 days of reversing course is a good sign.

I learned a long time ago that I don’t know shite about when it goes up and when it goes down. After Bush got elected I pulled out because I thought he was retarded. While I was out 9/11 happened, so I missed that drop. Got back in after and thought I was slick. Then 2008 came and I was caught flat footed. I didn’t feel so smart then. Decided a while ago to not pay as much attention. It’s like betting on your own team.

Anyone have the balls to do this?  I didn't, but they are up about 10% since Tuesday night.  I expect it will keep going up with all of the people working/learning remotely.

Amazon still looks like a value to me. 

#1 internet retailer in the world.  

They sell almost everything 

Their Prime delivery service is second to none

This virus crisis will drive more brick and mortars out of biz. 

No other company was better positioned to take advantage of the short term effects of this crisis.   

Long term outlook is good.

After a 20+% rise, I'd have thought it would be down a lot more than what it is today.    :wave:

A 20% rise over 3-4 days vs one day. I stand by my dead cat bounce.
