    Reportedly, there were no Americans killed during the missile attacks. Good news. But, I think that President Trump's decision not to address the nation tonight will create/fuel a level of uncertainly leading into tomorrow's opening bell. Therefore, the futures may remain deeply in the red.

    EDIT: Looks like President Trump's latest tweet may have helped the futures some. As of now, they are down:

    DOW: 76.00

    S&P: 7.00

    NAS: 25.50

    Yes, indeed! It will eventually come to a halt, though... and not even he will be able to stop the bleeding. But, how much further will it rise until then? That's the million-dollar question that no one can answer. But, I'd rather miss out on that rise than to get caught up in the free-fall once that finally commences. I'll only come out ahead if we fall further than we've risen since I IFT'd to (G). I'm awaiting at least a 5% decline. But, how long will I be waiting? Hopefully not too much longer.

    That is exactly what I was thinking last summer. I went in and out on short term trades (ended up about 2%total during that time) before giving up trying to time it and going all in for December. I missed most of the December 2018 drop and was in for most of the first art of 19 so had a good year (would have done about 10% better just riding c or s) but all the old timing tricks donít work. Even the ones people proved during qe donít match up to the current liquidity pumping the fed does. I think Iím in till something scares me or we get the reversal. For now I think making a 5% profit is as likely as a 5% drop near term. Good luck timing this in any way!

    Yeah... I'm hoping for a repeat of 2008. Sensing a disturbance in "the force", I ducked for cover on 23 Jan 2008. Although I waited in (G) for about 8 months prior to the crash, I did not lose one red cent during the crash. Furthermore, I sacrificed only about a 22 point upswing in the S&P between the months of Jan 2008 and May 2008- when the S&P took a nosedive. I then IFT'd to 60 (C) and 40 (S) on 9 Nov 2009. I had been holding that until I IFT'd back into (G) on 23 Dec after once again, "sensing a disturbance in the force." BTW, my buy-n-hold return for that period was 281%... averaging 28% annually.

    Nice! Hope you are right. Not that Iím looking forward to a Nosedive....just getting tired of waiting for it when I believe it will happen at some point.

    I hope I'm right too. We never truly know what's going to happen. And sometimes it's best to become your own contrarian... going against yourself. LORD willing, this isn't one of those times when I should've gone against myself. Then again, it was my first IFT in over 10 years! I think I was entitled to one... no matter what happens!

    I am ready for this pullback/correction to commence! I've missed out on about 3.76% of gains (Had I maintained my allocation) since I IFT'd to (G) on 23 Dec. I'm usually a bit early exiting the markets when I sense I need to. But, like I said on 23 Dec...

    I may miss out on some more gains in this long-running Bull. But, I do fear it will soon come to an abrupt end. I missed the 2008 crash altogether. My plan is to miss the impending next one too, and then buy in low as I did in 2009.

    Here's to the hopeful awakening of The Bears!

    God Bless

    Exclamation Re: Rod's Account Talk

    Perhaps now the pullback will officially commence. I just hate to see this type of catalyst- the Coronavirus. But, Mr. Market was overdue for a rest. At least a 5% rest. Because we don't know the ultimate impact the Coronavirus will have on the global economy, this is a tricky situation for those of you who are still in the market. Do you "panic" sell today? Do you just stick it out... because, in the market, what goes down must go up? How far down are you willing to ride it? Because a few days/weeks from now they could announce a vaccine, ushering in a huge rally. Personally, If I was still in, I would likely just ride this thing out... as I have done many times in the past. Now, I just have to wait for what I believe to be the ideal entry point... after at least a 5% consolidation.

    God Bless

    Edit: BTW, if you want to bet against this downtown, then stock up on some FAZ. Also, Clorox (CLX), Vir Biotechnology (VIR)- attempting to develop a vaccine for the Coronavirus. It is currently up 27%.

    It wouldn't surprise me at all (but it sure would tick me off) if Mr. Market went green by COB. It really needs a rest of at least 5% and I hope this is finally the beginning of it.
