Same set up as today! I sold 100k $DJI when it crossed 25k last week. I will probably buy a bit tomorrow at the open and see how the week goes.

Not to worry, I suspect he's not done shaking things up yet!

If we can keep out of the political trenches, we enhance the chance for thread longevity and useful discussion.

Right. And monthly dividends payout next Friday at the usual amount.
I'm going out on my boat.

Lots of folks look like this is a "good" opportunity. Granted, I don't have crystal ball, but I don't see this as a great buying time. My gut sure tells me that this is just the beginning of a correction. I know, I know...trying to time the market is a fool's game. It just seems like the storm clouds are on the horizon and although we may not have to deal with a hurricane, I do think that something with gale force winds is a distinct possibility.

True.
But I think most folks here view this as just another downturn with an upturn somewhere in the wings.

I've mentioned here a few times lately that 2008 taught me that "the worst downturn since the Great Depression" wasn't the end of the world and if anything it has made me less concerned about these things.

What goes down must go up. Eventually.

Meanwhile, my dividends/interest keep coming in at their regular amounts and intervals; my NW may vary but my "paycheck" keeps coming in every month.

I've had some very time consuming personal issues come up in the last week. As a result, I have not been sitting around checking news and social media feeds, and have been almost completely out of the loop on the day to day news. While the events that caused this change of habits isn't good, the part that involves not being aware of the news is proving to be very, very enjoyable.

I had thought that continuing to check E-R.org occasionally would keep me "safe" from the news, but apparently not
