US Markets Hit Record Highs

Postby Taco » Fri Feb 24, 2017 10:00 am

"Stocks closed mixed Thursday, but the Dow was the leader, in its longest streak of record closes since the first 13 trading days of 1987. Traders often wince when 1987 is mentioned since it is remembered well as the year of the famous October stock market crash."

As of yesterday afternoon, the P/E ratio for the S&P 500 stock index reached 26.5. More importantly, since the 1870s, there have been a total of THREE times in which the average stock P/E ratio was above 26.5.

We know that the next economic crash (every 7 years) is coming soon, because these crashes are deliberately timed to coincide with the U.S. presidential cycle. – Jeff Nielson

For the first time ever, the number of market indexes now exceeds the number of U.S. stocks...

The recent explosion in indexes has been driven by demand as many new benchmarks essentially repackage active investment strategies into indexes to cut costs.

I have been taking a contrarian (no pun intended) approach to this bubble. I am 100% out of the market, but when it goes into bear market territory which is a high likelihood, I will increase dollar cost average back into the game.

If we get down a 50% to 60% decline in the major indexes, I will go ALL IN and ride it back up to the highs.

A lot of people do not understand the math of stock losses and how much it must go up to get back to the break even point.

If a stock goes, Then it must go
Down 5% Up 5.27% to break even
Down 10% Up 11.1% to break even
Down 20% Up 25% to break even
Down 30% Up 43% to break even
Down 40% Up 67% to break even
Down 50% Up 100% to break even
Down 60% Up 150% to break even
Down 70% Up 233% to break even
Down 80% Up 400% to break even
Down 90% Up 900% to break even
Down 95% Up 2000% to break even

As you can see, losses in excess of 60% are opportunities to clean up in down markets so be careful never to catch a falling knife before the bottoming out.
