Bought today at 119$ :mrgreen:
Damn it went to 114$ today. This volatility is driving me crazy.
Bought $7,500 of VTI this morning at 119.00 as well. Bought $10,000 at $125.00 few days ago and 10,000 for VSUS at 39.00. Have another 17,500 left in the tank I will keep buying. Decided to use the 45K I had saved for a downpayment for a second house/rental to go into the market instead. Emergency fund still in tact guys.

The way I’m doing it with my idle cash is I’m putting a little in per week and I’ve stretched the funds I have available to last 12 installments. Im at two installments per week so that gives me 6 weeks. This is all because of an account transfer I did in January which left me with a bunch of uninvested cash. I was going to invest it all at once when the transfer completed and then the crash ramped up. This is also outside of my regularly scheduled contributions. Plus I am starting a small position in Microsoft and Apple which I was going to do anyways.

Not us - been nibbling on the way down - more like re-balancing. We've had 1/4 of our PF set aside for a downturn that we expected would come, and had hoped ("planned") to up our equities allocation from 25 to 35-40%.
But, we are now TERRIFIED of loosing our "safe" fix assets that we have in MM/Total Bond Market (VBTLX). VBTLX down 1.7% yesterday....and so on for days prior. Ugh.

Getting ready to move VGMM to local bank; re-allocate Bonds to MM (non-taxable)

Feel free to confirm our fears - move to safety (more safety)?

BTW: DH put in/received approval of Early retirement package in Feb (along with many of his colleagues) - large corporation. Talk about W-O-R-S-T TIMING ever.

gut wrenching. But today i moved from TRD 2045 to a combo of S&P 500 & Vanguard Windsor II (different 401K's).

I think the Windsor fund (VWNFX) is down close to 60%!

52-week high 12/16/2019
$39.40
52-week low 03/16/2020
$25.36
Range
$14.0455.36% (55.36%)

I think i'm done rebalancing (buying low). Fingers crossed now. (I don't see Armageddon with Corona...).

I'm so looking forward to being 50/50 (stock/bond) when I'm 50...
:sharebeer

Edit: one side benefit is I needed to buy more US stock. Almost 100% of my taxable account is in non-US.

TLH again today.

Bought more large cap admiral shares today.

Market down 30+ % from recent highs. Prepared to purchase more every additional 5% down. No problem if it doesn’t go below this market but sticking to plan.

Continuing to TLH into US Market type partner funds.

Have another chunk locked up until 4/1 in Capital One for $1k bonus.

If the market continues falling will use it to buy more equities (over-rebalance).

These are amazing times. Just TLH'ing. Try to stay fully invested and DCA into retirement plan, so no real magazine of "dry powder" around, unfortunately.

S&P drops to 2000
S&P drops to 1500
S&P drops to 1000
S&P drops to 500

Figure out a schedule of buys that will keep enough dry powder ready for the furthest drop you are comfortable with (meaning that you are ok with no dry powder below a certain level).

Then you just execute that schedule on the way down rather than stressing about every purchase.
that's exactly what have been doing. Last purchase was 2,386 and next purchase @2,000 and all in at 17,000
I'm following a similar approach. I bought S&P when it was down 20% from all time high and again when down 30%. I plan to make 3 or 4 more purchases as it declines. If the market recovers in 18 months, that will make a nice gain (better than other assets). (I am obviously in the red now, but, I will not sell these blocks at a loss).

While I do hope you so well, personally, I'm not interested....it's still expensive given the uncertainties ahead of us. This is not 2008. I hope I'm wrong, for health and financial reasons.

Is the yield on VTI actually close to 2.97% according to dividend.com ? Yahoo Finance has the yield at 1.93% . Perhaps they have not updated it, which seems unusual. They update yields for stocks constantly. Maybe they don't bother as much for ETFs? Anyway, a near 3% yield is a nicer incentive to buy VTI vs. a 1.93% yield.

Well VTI dropped 33%, so you get a 50% higher dividend yield. If it drops -50%, dividend yield increases by 100%. Assuming earnings and dividend payouts are not affected.

$5000 more of VTI today at 110.30. Have a limit order for my last $5000 set at $104.00 for next 60 days and then I'm all done. How much more paper loss will I see, and how long will I get a return on all these purchases? I'm hoping for 3 years from now.

I couldn't resist and so I am buying today. I know it's too soon but I can't help it. I have "sort of" the pinwheel portfolio so I have an international piece and an EM piece which is two different funds. That's all I bought, and not a lot. It's the second time I've done it, and I'm not proud of that.

I think I bought today?

I'm not sure.

It's all auto pilot for me to buy on the 1st, 7th, 15th, 21st of each month.

Since the 21st was a Saturday, maybe it got punted to today.

Keyed in the trade (3%of PF) and literally had my finger on the button but the market turned the last 20 minutes so I held off on the trade. It would have been my 4th purchase since the drop but I suspect I will be able get in even cheaper soon enough. :beer

Money Market. Yield on those is still over 1%. I'll change my mind if the 10 year yield goes up or MM yield drops precipitously.

:beer I wasn't sure; lack of facial expressions & all.

I'm skeptical about buying 10 year treasuries with yields so low. Seems like I'd be betting on yields going even lower than 0.8% which is not a bet I'm willing to make.

I wonder how much the S&P will pop if/when there is a clear decline in the number of new cases in the US... actually might be tempted at that time, assuming I want to break my pre-crisis plan of not jumping in until I get my new job. My AA is not appropriate for my age, but I decided that I can't deal with swings in taxable while transitioning.

Rebalanced from bonds to VTSAX and VTIAX on 3/23.

Trying to resist the urge to buy a couple blue chip stocks straight up (will likely buy a few at some point).

To put things into perspective, while the markets have tanked, they are still modestly overvalued as per Warren Buffets indicator: https://www.gurufocus.com/stock-market-valuations.php

I'm seeing early news of a bump today but no one really knows. I have one last limit buy for VTI at $104.00. Got $5000 yesterday at $110.00. I'm leaving the limit buy for 60 days and I won't be surprised if it goes through at some point. If not that's okay. I bought all the way down as I wrote in my previous responses on this thread.

You can't tell a bottom from a dead cat bounce until the next year.

Or is it a bear rally?

Have a buy order in for a Roth IRA later this week, so expect the market to soar in the short term ;)

Probably better to wait but at least it’s discounted compared to investing earlier this year.

It's a real rally.

Is it a bear rally?

My guess is yes, but I'm not changing any plans or acting on it either way.

Bought some yesterday (VIAC, KSS, GLD, PRU).
Bought some VZ this morning at 49.30.
Had planned to buy some VEA today if the market was flat or down, but I guess I waited too long. Will wait for next down day (maybe Thursday's employment numbers?).
