Who the fuck is still buying?

Everyone I know has either cashed out or entered shorts in order to ride the inevitable market correction.

Last time I checked most people don't even save anymore so fewer people are even investing.

So who the fuck is still bidding up prices?

That short you have is going to hang you.
You'll have to close it long before the correction.

Personally, once this thing blows up, I think it could go as low as 1200.

I'm going to start buying as soon as it falls through 1500, and if it falls even more, I'll consider it a godsend and buy even more.

Is that graph implying we didn't recover from the great depression till late 1990s?

What's fucking ridiculous is you thinking the market's give a fuck what you think is fucking ridiculous. If the markets moved in lockstep with some pre-defined notion of "proper" p/e ratios, then we'd all be perfect market timers.

We get it: you fucked up and didn't go long. You had your chances in 2009, 2010, 2011 was a great time, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 was buying opportunity, and 2016. You fucked it up, like usual. You missed the boat, and now everyone has a yacht and you have your shitty "dry powder."

So you cry and whine and pray and wish for a crash. Funny thing is, even if the market does correct, you'll probably still miss your chance thinking it'll far farther. Your type is genetically incapable of winning.

Dunno why idiots spread this meme. QE in the US ended in 2014, and globally its been on the decline for years. Take Japan out of the charts (which is fair, since QE has never really worked in Japan anyway) and you have a pretty dramatic trendline even with the ECB's ongoing operations.

I guess some people just make up excuses to make themselves feel better about missing boat.

You don't need to actively budget your entire life in a spreadsheet to save.

Get around smarter people.

Obviously a lot of people if the price is going up.

Why? Prob because Yellen's speech was a sounding board for whatever market participants wanted to project and she probably doesn't have the balls to raise rates if she can't give a straight-forward speech.

shorting when the market is still going up

You better learn to time your trades when the trend reverses.

@Nude_Bikergirl

It's not implying anything. It's just a poorly-labeled graph of returns. It means absolutely nothing at this point, maybe if you want you can TA that chart and say we won't reach the previous ceiling in 2007-09.

@Stark_Naked
You don't know what that means, pal.
