The last time I invested in international, DW stayed all in US. My IRA shriveled, while hers grew fat and sleek. I learned a painful lesson and now my guidance is "eschew international".

It looks like I picked the right thread. :mrgreen:

Mr Market seems kind of mellow yesterday and today so far. Just kinda hanging loose.

I think you’ll get your wish.
GME is down in after hours so it’s looking good for the S&p 500.
Never mind. GME is back up today, and the S&P 500 is tumbling. What do you know...

It happens.

DOW was around 1000 in 1966 and STILL around 1000 in 1982. That's 16 years of sideways (actually there was a lot of up and down in there, including a 50% crash in like 73-74, and of course that doesn't count dividends which were fairly solid back then - I think 3%-4%?)

But long sideways markets have occurred before and could happen again

(By the way that kind of market is AMAZING for accumulators - terrible for those of us who are just about to retire)

That's such an important thing to keep in mind. (For an accumulator) it's so easy to get caught up in wanting to see green every day, and yet being able to plug in the excess portion of your salary during an extended sideways market is a huge boon (assuming things take off again before you're needing that money). Being not so young and yet still relatively new to investing, developing an appreciation for down days/periods has been one of my most surprising learning experiences.

I'm getting the feeling we have a lot of people who started investing in the last 12 years. Japan had a Lost Decade in the 1990s. The US had a Lost Decade in 1999-2009. If you started investing after that, you might have the impression that the market goes up 15% every year.

I can't see how anyone can expect us to go through a Covid type event and not experience major disruptions in the market. I'm still stupefied the market is up so much since April 2020 beyond "Companies slashed payrolls and took profits". But now, everything is jammed up.

I acknowledge I'm too stupid to judge and just keep dollar cost averaging, figuring it will work itself out. But this #@!#@! is weird.

Free fall is when we hit circuit breakers. Otherwise it’s soaring with small altitude changes.

Exactly. We shouldn't be surprised if it drops below 3000. In fact, I would guess that it will. I just don't know when.

I don't think that can happen with interest rates at 0% and pretty much every asset class overvalued. Sell and go where?

If you thought that was going to happen why would you stay in equity? I’m not saying it can’t happen, but I buy stock because I’m guessing it will go up.

We invest in stocks because they tend to go up over the long run. We don't know the path they will take to get there and that path often includes significant drops.

Several reasons.

I don't know it will happen or when it will happen.

I expect that stocks will go up long term.

I don't attempt to time the market.

I'd rather not lose than win big.

1. Everything but my fun money is in IRAs. Mostly in QQQ. If SPY starts to soar above QQQ I will move it over at a rate of about 25% per calendar quarter. Is that DCA or is does that have a different name? If International starts to soar above either SPY or QQQ I will read the chatter about it right here and start thinking about moving some money into VXUS.

2. If international waits too long to soar above QQQ, I will miss it. I am 75 and have had cancer twice and two heart attacks. Think Hezekiah, not Methuselah, for longevity.

QQQ is a beast, and Vanguard Mega Cap Growth (MGK), at +1.78%, is QQQ's trusty sidekick.

S&P is doing well, but alas the Curly Family Portfolio has fallen back to earth. Slightly negative so far, but it had a great day yesterday. If I average them I am still ahead. :)

Looks like another day where the Dow jumps and tech sells off. Rinse and repeat.

Yup, chop, chop, choppity chop. I feel like we've been stuck in a constant tug of war between Value and Growth since the beginning of 2021. Seems the world can't figure things out. :?

If this continues, we'll really need a "U.S. stocks are stuck sideways", like someone suggested. :mrgreen:

Sideways through the summer and then lift-off during Q4 as Q3 earnings come into view would make for a very nice year.
