Jes' Yer Friendly Neighborhood Ol' Broked Down Retahr'd Union Pipefitter...... and his 401 Plan. Pre-Mid Post Market Correction Version... 

“You can’t develop a portfolio strategy around endless possibilities. You wouldn’t even get out of bed if you considered everything that could possibly happen….. you can use history as one tool for shaping reasonable probabilities. Then, you look at the world of economic, sentiment and political drivers to determine what’s most likely to happen—while always knowing you can be and will be wrong a lot.”
- Ken Fisher

Very Ugly Correction. I'm Still Way Long (100% Stocks)
My 401 is for long term growth. I was all cash in 2008. Not this time. At least not yet.... Let's see where I stand at the end of the year....




Last 120 days.Correction in time (flat) then price (sudden puke) Now we wait and see...

Kinda what I'm thinkin'...
https://theirrelevantinvestor.wordpress.com/2015/08/24/should-investors-stay-the-course/
I'da rather sold a coupla weeks ago. But the 401 is an account that i may not tap for years. It provides a 100% levered to stock portion of my portfolio and as such, I'm OK with letting it be... When the time goes to be 100% all accross the portfolio, this parts already there....

People have a fascination with statistics. As in science, statistics and correlations can tell a story about the market too. That story can be useful and often has lessons to be learned. Learn those lessons and prepare for that relationship to continue, but do not rely on it happening. If all short term correlations persisted indefinitely human life would not exist, much less an uptrend.

Reagan is still dead. 1980s nostalgia bands are fine, but trying to revive 1980s economic policies in today’s context gets more wrong every year.

Kinda takes me back to the 60's. A buddy of mine was at SF State sitting on the lawn between classes while demonstrations were occurring on the other side of the area. The cops scattered the demonstrators and one cop chasing a handful of demonstrators, ran past my buddy, still sitting on the lawn, and at full speed, took a one handed swing at a short haired sitting spectator. Don slammed back against the ground and the baton whistled past his face. Coulda splattered his brains. I don't claim to be an oppressed minority, but I have at least some appreciation of the below... I do get a kick outta the other attendees at the financial conferences I attend talking about what the "old hippie" is doing there. There was a time (still is actually, I flew back to Chicago and bought a truck and drove it back. Got a lot of hard eye here and there onna way) that my appearance symbolized a threat to God and Country. http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/arc ... re/391158/








It's a complicated world, and I'm no longer a pipefitter, I'm a retiree investor hell bent on making my life savings work for me and my family. But I've never figured that made me one of the guys who will get bailed out the next time Wall Street craters itself. Most of the time, I'm on Betty Dub's side...

A heavily-analyzed, globally-traded commodity can go down fifty percent in response to relatively modest changes in fundamentals.
Therefore, you might want to take the predictions you hear and the models you rely upon with a truckload of salt.

Everyone forgets the lessons of the financial crisis. Even those who survived it cannot recall the emotional feelings of how hard it is not to sell (what you think is cheap and worth holding onto) or buy (what you think is a great bargain) when the entire news and investment industry is bearish.

http://peakoilbarrel.com/the-competitiv ... principle/








So as a long hair liberal graduate of UC Berserkley, there are a lot of lefties who make my brain hurt to listen to them. But they are trying to go to where we can't go. At least not now. But what disturbs me is the righties who want to go back to where they imagine we used to be without realizing that we are not there any longer because it became untenable. Fires don't burn backwards and cement doesn't turn back into water and dry powder and then climb back inna bag no matter how much you may want it to. Neither do you speed up/reverse history for convenience...




Kinda peripheral 401 stuff. Your fund advisor's first obligation is to his wife and kids. That obligates him to earn. His obligation to you is to do well for you/not screw you up so badly that you no longer produce income. It's OK not to come first. It's not OK to come last...

The conspiracy theorists fail to understand the basics of econometric modeling and how these numbers are calculated. Consider the rise in unemployment in the January nonfarm payrolls report. More than a million people returned to the job market last month, raising the unemployment rate from 5.6 percent to 5.7. Hence, we have a deep dark secret. It has been craftily hidden by the illuminati, Freemasons and Trilateral Commission, unless you know the secret handshake, or are familiar with a small, esoteric company called "Google.”
