I've never understood the thought process of "Man I hope we have another Great Depression with 25% unemployment and bread lines, so I can buy stocks cheap and get REALLY rich".
I understand it extremely well. It's important to steel your nerves at the right time. Some people are going to need encouragement at the right time.
There's a difference between being ready for it, and WISHING for it.

History doesn't repeat exactly, it only rhymes. People wishing for a big crash don't know what they will actually get. I certainly hope they don't expect 2009 every time. That quick bounce back is not guaranteed.
Yup. Think: Japan.

And nobody knows where the bottom is until the market recovers. Or you think it has recovered.

I am going to jinx this by saying I could see another 8% by the end of the year (dodges rotting fruit thrown from the bleachers.)

Investing can be so painful, but also so much fun. It's like rotisserie baseball with index funds, except an average year usually means you're winning!
I look at this and think of all the wise men who started predicting 4% or 5% CAGR about 5 years ago...
Over what timespan? They aren't wrong (yet) if they said it was over the next decade, which is a fairly common benchmark.

I think some of them started with that nonsense in 2011. The stuff I remember just said "going forward" -- no specific time frame involved.

Yep, 2011 many experts were predicting 4.5% real going forward, because of valuations and other metrics. Instead we've gotten like 12% real for the past 8 years.

That's not a just a little bit off...

And if the market bounces around sideways the next decade and makes this a reality, or has a sudden plunge on Monday, will you say they were spot on?

Just don't make sense :annoyed
When else would a recession happen? Isn't it a fact that every recession has happened after the stock market has reached a new high?
There is always something to worry about. The money scandals, the sex scandals, the sex and money scandals. If that wasn't enough, you worry about the money and sex scandals. Is the economy going too slow? Is the economy overheating? Lots of this is just noise.

Nope. Because, with rebalancing, I've already locked in a good chunk of those gains... Even if we have a big plunge on Monday, ignoring their prediction made me richer than following their prediction.

And not just a little richer... A lot richer.

I don't think you understand how far off they were...

No. Because they were not "spot on".

Their prediction was for miserable returns starting in 2011. They were demonstrably wrong.

Ignoring their predictions has produced a great bonanza for my family.

Now if we get miserable returns starting in 2020 that is clearly a different prediction from starting in 2011. But many of the same people are predicting "doom starting soon". Why should anyone believe them this time?

Worry is a favorite Boglehead pastime. I think that’s why we have the very popular free fall thread. This particular worry is just placed in the wrong thread...that’s all.

Probably the slowdown of the World economy and particularly China is the biggest concern. Economic growth slipping back towards 2%. The yield curve has tried to invert, that often signals recession but the Fed has started cutting short term rates. My take is that recession is not imminent, we will likely avoid it for now.

Sell relatively low, but this thread is purely about patting ourselves on the back. But sometimes posters express their concerns.

What would be the appropriate bird, spacecraft, or aircraft for international stocks soaring, should that ever happen?

This is the week for a break out to new highs.

I can feel it in my (aging) bones.
Looking good for a strong open.

S&P Futures are up about eight points.

Well, just don't get the idea that you won't see "pigs fly", evidence has been provided.

Is the media going to say new highs every time until it gets old?

True! But I’m worried he might ‘pop’ and that would be bad and certainly would not be a good reflection of soaring which was the point. (Okay, ‘point’ is a poor choice of words with that pig flying around, but that’s not the point.) A potential disaster looming is all I see here. I say someone has to come up with something better.

Interesting read! I would never have guessed any bird could reach such heights.

After 3 months of sideways movement, it's nice to see the S&P reach new highs.
