Meanwhile the little guy like us gets screwed. Meanwhile AAPL was up $5 on Friday in pre-market and then it goes down $8 lol. I spent all the money I had last week the day before the crash. Just my luck. I was able to gather some lose change under couch and added to V today. God help us all Wink

Really? How about some market analysts showing some long-forgotten caution and traders and retail investors starting to get nervous? The crooks can't manipulate the whole market. Much better at insider trading, front running, selling junk to retail, high speed trading and money laundering.

I still have a lot of accumulating to do before I can retire, so I'm just going to remind myself how nice it is to be able to pick up shares cheaper. Time to sharpen the pencil and start looking for opportunities.

I didn't pay much attention myself. Come talk to me when we crash like 1987. In meantime, I gotta go snoop around for something to throw money at ... maybe.

Well this isn't 1987 lol. Companies are much better poisoned now and those companies in 1987 were cornered by 20 stocks. All I'm saying is they better be careful. Today are reasons why most American's would rather leave their money in the bank collecting 1% interest or under the mattress rather then in the market. You would be surprised by how many Americans couldn't even tell you the symbol for Johnson and Johnson or what the NYSE is. And I'm not joking. Plus the fact every since 911 and the market crash people refuse to invest in the market. They are billions of $$$ on the sidelines just waiting to come in to the market. And its those hedge funds that want in at cheaper prices. I'm fine with the correction as long as its done over time, not all in one day lol. I'm loving the fact you can get JNJ, THO, HON, PM and others at big discounts now. Just wish I had waited an extra 2 days haha! All good.. In 20 years it wont matter right

Well, today at open I hedged a small part of my portfolio. So, seeing as my timing is always the worst possible, now all of you can go back to enjoying the SP500 heading back to all time highs.

You're welcome guys.

Sold DPS in my wife's ROTH account and bought 54 shares of O. With 154 shares now, I think I might be done buying O for a while.

As I said, you're welcome guys.

I couldn't bare to lose the cash anymore so I closed the position.. so this is the time when you start to need to worry about a downward trend again.
