However, others are seeing investors step in to add to positions, while a majority of sell tickets are being driven by passive funds off program desks." MSN

The timing of this market dip - if it continues into correction or *GASP* bear territory - would be ideal for me. I do love a good fire sale! By my napkin calculation, we're only down 4.1% though...

I called Whee last week (although I thnk there is an official Whee spokesperson on this forum, can't recall which user). We shall see if we get a correction everyone is so adamantly hoping for lol.



I just don't think it's sustainable with the current economic outlook, but treasuries rise, and equities drop. So that's what we are seeing, along with some profit takers, robo shorts etc.


I was so close to shorting 250k last week, but Warren Buffet's infamous quote turned me away "Market timing is a fool's game".



Instead, I'll buy the dip, and ride the wave.

Good to know, some dude on the exchange floor (jared) sort of hinted that Money Managers would be repositioning there sector buys.

recent VIX article:
https://www.schaeffersresearch.com/c...en-hot-in-2018

And, from another source:

Quote:
The S&P 500 Index (SPX) is notably lower today, with tech stocks pacing a broad-market decline. However, the index recently did something it hasn't done in three months -- and if recent history is any indicator, the signal suggests traders may want to buy the dip.

Specifically, the S&P ended at least 0.5% above its intraday low for three straight sessions: Oct. 5, 7, and 8. This signal has flashed fewer than 100 times since 2010, including on Nov. 9, 2016, at the start of the "Trump rally." The last signal, on July 9, 2018, preceded a healthy climb to new highs for the SPX.

Points Shmoints. It's % that matters. So OK, a 3% drop in a day is notable, but not anything anyone but a day trader is going to act on. For me, this is a total yawn.

Another 30%, and I might think about re-balancing. Yawn again.

I actually found a couple interesting individual bonds to buy today. One person's garbage in another person's treasure.

Bonds went down stocks also went down. No place to hide.
Maybe the Fed is going crazy.

Let's see....the economy is strong, unemployment is at an all time low, restaurants are full every night (around here, anyway), shoppers are all in the stores, etc.

Buy the Dip!
