I'm deeply amused that folks on this thread seem to view this thread like the majority of folks view the stock market - paying too much attention to the noise. See these two posts and similar:

I've learned a lot about many of the posters in this thread over the past couple of days. They are expert on identifying daily market movements, explaining why they moved and how to best react to those movements.
Contrary to one of Jack Bogle's most popular memes, it seems "everybody knows everything".
You quoted me in your response, but I don't see any correlation between your post and mine. I never mentioned how many responders bought, sold or did nothing. I did nothing and as your research shows, most did nothing also. Great.
How am I paying too much attention to the noise, unless it's the noise from this thread?
Care to elaborate?
My response had to do with the 7 plus pages over 1 plus days due to a one day drop and the responses from many, not most, Bogleheads about the reasons: whether this is a blip or not, if this will continue, are international and bonds truly diversifiers, questioning Boglehead principles, jobs report, wages rose, rate hikes, the economy too not, treasury yields, cash, xxx month/day moving averages, flash crash, Eagles, buying the dip, after hours prices, futures, valuations, and many more.
Yes, this was noise and I was momentarily annoyed by it. So?
Maybe it was out of sync with the general lightheartedness of this thread and that offended you? Sorry.
