Looks like the end for Dow 26K today... trending back to Dow 25.5K (not a prediction, just an observation).

OK! I will reach into that bag of tricks that I learned from the marketing folks!

January 2nd, closed at 24824.
January 17th, closed at 26115.

10 trading days. 252 trading days in 2018

Therefore- we should be well over 57000 at the end of the year!

(Where is that Sell Sell Sell button?) Irrational exuberance set to ludicrous speed!

Just curious, is the 24 to 25 the second shortest?


Edit to add... this seems to say yes.... but as we know, the % is much less now than back when...

It likely happened because no one posted comments about it on this thread until after 3PM Eastern time.

The higher the climb the farther the fall!

Better lower those WRs.

No worries. You used the wrong "W" word.

Anyone else looking forward to the drop as much as I am? I made quite a bit after the last drop and I'm actually looking forward to trying it again. Disney went down to $16 in both 2001 and 2009 - I didnt buy it and probably won't buy it in the future but that price will be one of the things I look for as a signal that a bottom may be near.
