    The rest is history.
    I’m curious as to how much money they will be pulling out of the markets? 10s of billions? 100s of billions?

    No idea this time but it was, iirc, in the tens of billions range in 2008. Maybe 50? Extrapolating from current market cap, compared to Sept 08, should give a general range I'd think, but I'm going mostly on memory since the original info has long since been memory holed from the net.

    Any old timers may remember the "reinhardt" fellow from back then that figured out what actually happened to cause the liquidity problems. Of course, past performance does not guarantee future results but that's a very ominous sign.

    Great opportunity for bounce in the markets. QQQ below 300. Oversold short term within an intermediate term uptrend. McClellan Oscillator at bounce levels Put/call spiked yesterday. Even though I am looking for just a few percent bounce, entirely possible this is great entry point for a longer term move up.

    No guarantees. Only my opinion based on backtests of overbought and oversold for shorter term holds (less than a week). Still might have more downside pain. And anything can happen. But things look good to me for a close higher sometime in the next week or so

    Here is what the next six months *historically* have returned based on what we just experience with the market having such a sharp rally off lows. Not always easy to realize those returns. Sept worst month for stocks . A lot of people infinitely smarter than me disagree. Always have a reason like Fed tightening, QT, recession, etc. But the data tends to win out over opinion.






    An alternative view for balance is when the market is down like this through August bad things happen going forward.



    short term I think things look good. Anything longer and who knows.

    I sold all of this at the close and after hours for a tiny profit. Had a pretty big position and basically determined if it closed at a profit I would sell. Probably shoots higher and I will swear loudly.

    A lot of negativity in sentiment which is what is needed for a new bull market. I just don't want to get caught having to hold over the weekend and some crazy thing in Europe happening.

    Breaking the Buck

    Occasionally, a money market fund may fall below the $1 NAV. This creates a condition that is sometimes referred to with the colloquial term "breaking the buck." When this condition occurs, it may be attributed to temporary price fluctuations in the money markets. However, if it persists, the condition may trigger a moment when the investment income of the money market fund fails to exceed its operating expenses or investment losses.

    For example, if the fund used excess leverage in purchasing instruments—or overall interest rates dropped to very low levels nearing zero—and the fund broke the buck, then one of these scenarios could lead to a condition where the fund cannot meet redemption requests. If this happens, regulators may jump in and force the fund's liquidation. However, instances of breaking the buck are very rare.

    In 1994, the first instance of breaking the buck occurred. The Community Bankers U.S. Government Money Market Fund was liquidated at $0.96 per share. This was the result of large losses that the fund incurred following a period of heavy investment in derivatives.

    In 2008, following the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the venerable Reserve Primary Fund also broke the buck. The fund held millions of the Lehman Brothers debt obligations, and panicked redemptions by its investors caused its NAV to fall to $0.97 per share. The pullout of money caused the Reserve Primary Fund to liquidate. This event triggered mayhem throughout the money markets.

    To prevent this from happening again, in 2010—in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis—the SEC issued new rules to better manage money market funds. These rules were intended to provide more stability and resilience by placing tighter restrictions on portfolio holdings and introducing provisions for imposing liquidity fees and suspending redemptions.
    The new plan to prevent busting the buck. You won't be able to withdrawal your money.

    Or was it that those rules were only to prevent it happening until a more appropriate time? Clearly the SEC picks and chooses which rules to enforce, when to enforce and who to enforce against. That is the nature of rules, as opposed to natural laws, which are enforced outside of man's control.

    Big day tomorrow. Usually pays to buy before a Fed day when the market has sold off into it. Gut feel is it has become too obvious and the market drops. But who knows.

    Still think the market fools the majority with a crazy rally into year end. Combination of breadth thrust, sentiment, and fund positioning is favorable for stocks. But thinking it might need to be from lower levels. Maybe a whoosh down the rally the last two months of the year

    I hope the FOMC pulls a Volcker and raises 125 or 150. It would fit with Cashin's warning about the equinox.

    Pretty big rally of the initial selloff. Market back to flat on the day. I would have guessed a close of low on the day. Maybe a rally?

    Edit: Wild gyrations. Closed exact low of the day.

    Inverted 10/30 year bond yield curves today.

    2 year bond over 4% today.

    Europe is in full meltdown.

    They canít print their way out of inflation.

    Saber rattling of bear and dragon nations.

    Looks like a lot of pain coming to me.

    The Bond (and CD) market has been crazy (since this thread started). You can buy a 3 month T-bill or CD to be on the "safe side", and by the time it matures, it is paying 2 percent less then a new 3 month. God forbid you locked into a longer term CD or Treasury.

    Lock in 4% on a 2 year, and new ones will be paying 4.5% in a month (or less).

    Just get short however you can. I like SPX puts, out to March 2023 (next equinox period). Bank short ETFs for risk aversion instead of expensive index options. And a few shares of GME just in case the squeeze happens.

    Hmm... I started scaling into a Nasdaq long and am short GME. Mostly from the breakdown around 28 but added some short in the mid 24s today with a tight stop on the excess.

    I think if GME breaks 24 it goes to 18. And I think Monday has the potential to be a once in a decade long opportunity. Will be interesting to see who gets it right.

    Dude, seriously, all playful banter aside. Don't short it. You do NOT want to be on the wrong side if/when it runs. It's not worth it. There's too many other ways to make money in this market than playing with GME.

    (eta: remember that $68m Ryan Cohen/RC Ventures made from BBBY recently? Guess where that'll go when GME hits his buy low number....and he'll route it through IEX so it can't be routed off-exchange by Citadel)

    Not that hard. But then again, at this point it's not that hard to picture a loaf of bread ending the year above $30K.

    Just for you I covered half . (Also because it is flat on the day when the market is getting killed and because there is a netflix movie about it coming out next week).

    Good. It's just not worth the risk man. Obviously I've lived and breathed that stock for the last two years and know the situation with it in-and-out so I don't warn you from it lightly. Or at the very least hedge with a few shares of your own in a different (self-clearing brokerage) account if you insist on shorting it.
