Lots of happy people round these parts today.  Bears clinched the division by beating the hated Cheeseheads, and kept them from getting to the playoffs.  It's a great day to be a BEARS fan.  Bears go worst to first.  WhooooHooooooOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :yahoo::clapping::happyfeet:

Being in the financial industry, I always find it interesting when people complain about the market being down.  Keep in mind, you're still way up from 2009 and even more so since the tail end of 2016.  Put things into perspective rather than focusing on the noise.

I call bs.   Financial guys think of the market as having been there forever and going on forever.   Indeed,, over a longer period of time it projects well, and if you put noise filters starts to fit a straight line.

It works very well if you're buying.  However, if you're finished with the putting in part and living on the taking out part, then all of that value that was present in January and has vaporized just cut about 5 years off of our projected path of not having to use our principal.   Oh and that 200K+ that I rolled from my pension plan to the IRA?  Well that vaporized.  And that was with the conservative plan. I'd hate to see what his aggressive portfolio looks like. 

The stock markets are the opposite of gas prices:  Gas prices go up very quickly and go down slowly.  The stock market goes down very quickly and recovers slowly.  The history has been that the values lost over the past quarter will take two years to return a portfolio to what it was in October (OK, it might be 18 months, but it won't be 6 months).

That is an emotional response to what is happening in the market.  And a common response when markets are in correction.  The market is not for the faint of heart.  If you were so concerned about the downside risk, you could have pulled your portfolio and put everything in a CD for guaranteed returns.  But then you would not have enjoyed the run up since 2015 which was sort of flat.  Rule #1:  You can't time the market.  Those who try rarely win.  I don't manage money, but many of my business partners are CFA's, RIA's, etc.  My role is to provide the insurance for business, estate, and family planning so I eventually see the client's entire portfolio.  My recommendation is define your risk tolerance and then plan accordingly.  Most people get that step wrong when it comes to money and overestimate their risk tolerance because they want to participate in market gains, but when things go south they are the first to complain about it.  So call it BS if you want.... facts are facts and math doesn't lie: You're still way up from 2009 and the market will not always go up.

Ford Stock is at about 8.29 do you think Ford will get above 20 any time in 2019?

If I had a crystal ball, I would have bought Ford back in 2008 rather than my GT500 when their stock was down to $1.36 a share in inter day trading..... But NOOOO!  I had to go waste money on a toy that I still own and got 10 years of enjoyment out of.  At least I bought the GT500 below invoice.

Yeah, I wish I had bought back then too.  I don't own any Stock, never have, I don't have the Money to play the Stock Market.

I highly doubt it. Ford stock hasn't been in the 20's since around 2001.

Just about everybody has a different definition of “Rule #1” when it comes to investing.

Buffets Rule #1 was “never lose money”…….even though he has lot a boatload of money on a few occasions.

Peter Lynch of Fidelity Investments Rule #1 was “know what you own and why you own it”.

I try to follow Mr Lynch’s philosophy and it has served me well. I rarely buy stocks in companies that I don’t know something about their technology, their management culture, the companies products  and their financials.  Somebody who just is  crying fake news about everything is a cop out. Too many people don’t study individual companies. This doesn’t mean you have to be some kind of financial genius or an accountant.

But the over all real rule #1 is really like going to Vegas. Never bet (invest) more than you are willing to lose…..
