The markets are looking, shall we say, a bit less undervalued today.

But not as good as the people who sold last Monday and bought on Friday.

You can all thank me, I was going to move more money into the market but procrastinated to build up cash reserves.

Not to be gloomy, but I figure I'll have more buying opportunities before we stabilize. I am very happy for all my retired friends!

I understand what you're saying, so I apologize if I'm being a buzzkill. It's just hard to get excited about something like this with all the crazy volatility we've seen lately. I keep thinking, "well, who knows, it could drop again 800 points tomorrow." Maybe it's my way of dealing with something that's completely out of my control.

Bingo! Except I sold in Sept and dipped back in on Friday. Beginner's dumb luck and sheer terror. Methinks if the market continues upward that it's a good time to sell/buy () some more. But then I'm a newb, so don't pay any attention.

It looks like people like to discuss the market a lot more when it's down than when it's up. We had about five lively threads thriving last week.

I'm not a technical analysis believer, but is a dead cat bounce usually this pronounced?

Some of us may think it a jinx to gloat say too much about our gains...
