The Great Unwinding
« on: January 18, 2023, 02:04:32 PM »

I have to laugh.  Jeremy used to be such a rah-rah, buy-the-dip bro, perma-bull.  I think someone slipped him a read pill.   :rofl



I was expecting the collapse to start end of 2022.  Well, that didn't happen, obviously.  It will be interesting to see how far off I end up being. 

It's been a nice Bear-Market Rally though.  I sure hope anyone who had felt caught with too much long risk the last drop had time to re-evaluate their positions during this nice uptick.

On the other hand,  Tom Lee is predicting the Market will rocket up 20%+ this year.    :aok Good luck with that.

That guy is tough to watch with the over emotional clickbait posting.  I hope that is the exception and not the rule.  If you want to actually understand Macro and how it affects investing, you might want to consider other sources of info.

I think Quantum Mechanics is probably true.

See what I did there?  ;)

I try and watch these about once a year.  I always get to the edge of epiphany and I'm like, "Ohhh wait.  I get it!  I get it now!!!"
Then I wake up in the morning and its like, "Oh.  I lost it."   ;)

It'll all sink in someday.  :rofl

YEah I like Blockwork.

This one is my favorite channel.  I forgive him for having Tom Lee on.  It was really so we could all laugh at him.  :rofl

The time of freedom of speech coming out of Youtube is gone. It is just another mainstream media tool used to manipulate the narrative now. I'm not saying everything on there is wrong. But there are better places on the interweb to go looking for information.

There are lots of places to look for information.  The biggest challenge is getting factual information and not propaganda.  It is way too common for people to get disgusted by propaganda on one side of the spectrum only to embrace other propaganda that fits more conveniently with their views.  My caution is to not fall for that trap and value sincerity from where you get information from above political affinity.  it is getting increasingly tougher to have a fact based conversation on any issue, especially one tainted by politics.

I agree.

When a media outlet doesn't want to report the truth they do the "just asking questions" technique.
Not having legit sources, leads the viewer to the wrong facts and ultimately conclusions on topics.

As they keep raising the debt limit and thus allowing us to futher fall into debt...> $31trillion is not enough...the correction will never be allowed to happen..

This will eventually lead to major war attempting to force the rest of the world to keep the then useless dollar its reserve currency

Enjoy while it lasts..

Agree completely. Free financial advice channels always make me suspicious.

Well I was hoping to stay somewhere near the topic of stocks but I see that is going to be a lost cause. ;)

You do understand that the debt limit is just paying the bill for things we've already bought on the credit card, right?   

I'm all for reducing how much you charge on the national credit card.  But when a bill arrives, you have amoral obligation to pay for what you already bought.

At least that is how I was raised.
