What is your definition of "optimistic" treasury rates? Not sure what that means.
Few weeks ago 10y rate went up to 0.9% (bond futures dropped) when SP500 went past 3200. Normally stocks and bonds are supposed to move in the opposite direction.

Right now interest rate is stuck under 0.7% even when SP500 rises.

I am guessing Stocks are pushed higher by Robinhood/sports betting/day traders but interest rates are not much effected by them. There is also Fed which plans to hold zero rate for a long time, so that has some effect.

Correlation between VOO and VSIGX is -0.41. Negative, yes, but fairly weak. So hard to read much into a few weeks of movement.

European stocks dropped with U.S. futures on Friday...after Bloomberg News reported the European Central Bank is facing a potential rift over how much their emergency bond-purchase program should stay weighted toward weaker countries such as Italy...The friction at the ECB highlights the risk to markets should promised stimulus measures fall short.

This is no longer an accurate reflection of the size of the holding but it is still a trial part of my portfolio. A 10% gain in a week is certainly good fortune, but it easily could have been a 10% loss too.
TimeLord, I think you're treading on dangerous ground here... I understand you finally retired? (Congrats!). But it appears you're a bit bored, and now you're dipping your toe into day-trading.

Not a good idea.

I'm building up a tolerance to its volatility. The first time I held I made a 1% return. The second time I made a 11% return. This is my third time. I bought around 6/23. (My timing for purchasing is terrible.) I'm currently up 11% in it, and I'm not ready to sell yet. I am seeing the VXN come up. It's hovering around 30. I prefer it to be in the 20 range before holding it long term.

I'm holding this up to a 20% return before selling again. That would give me a good return for the year in this ETF along with the other sales.

This is five percent of my portfolio, and it keeps my belly engaged:)

I have it split 50/50 between my IRA and taxable.

The short term capital gains tax hurts, but the returns are so high that even after taxes its still a good return. I will feel better about holding it long term with a VXN in the 20 range, not the 30 range.

My move out of foreign stocks lost me less; I guess that's good. It's like the Mets making it to .500, not a win but it could be worse.

Some might say that the better than anticipated jobless report is leading market participants to believe that there will be less favorable action from the Fed and the government, resulting in more pessimistic views of the future.

But no one really knows. Not even the talking heads. Probably especially the talking heads.

Isn't that funny? Job news was better than expected, but therefore the reaction by the Fed is worse than expected, so the market drops. :shock:

Not that this is necessarily what happened, but it's a good theory and very possible.

I actually tend to believe that it does not matter what the news is. It just matters what the sentiment around market participants is.

If some big investment firm decides to sell - whatever the reason it is - it might trigger some kind of "sell off" which is solely based on sentiment.

I do not think that there is any reason for the drop - it is just the market playing it's game.

The last time I looked at my accounts was around 3:45PM.

The only green I saw was my Microsoft stock.

Oh well, up/down, who knows what tomorrow will bring, certainly I do not.

I do wish I had bought more than 200 shares back in 2016. :(

Bad news is good news for some stocks, more closings mean stay at home stocks do better. It takes 24/7 dedicated high speed trading bots to keep up. I'll settle of an alpha of 1.00 minus three basses points. :|

I can't tell when people are being tongue in cheek around here. Presuming you're not...what matters is the price you buy and the price you sell. It doesn't matter what the price is on Monday unless you're selling on Monday. That's the theory at least. I realize it's hard to think this way in practice.

I can say that when I bought my house, I didn't worry about any change in market value of the house a day later. Even to this day I don't keep track of the current market value. I don't care because I know I'm not going to sell now, so the price I'd get if I did is meaningless.

If you were in fact being playfully tongue in cheek, then I do apologize for the unneeded impromptu lecture.

Bonds were soaring today. BIV (intermediate term corporate + treasuries) hit intraday all time high.

Even my taxable holding of MGK (mega-cap growth) is up 0.5%. So pretty green day for me.

It seems your calls for the last few months have been, shall we say, less than stellar.
But, I do admire your consistency. Perhaps, you will be correct this time. :beer

Check the most recent headline on MarketWatch for a possible reason.

If the headline doesn’t line up with what’s currently happening in the market, then it’s something else. Maybe the opposite of the headline.

Who knows?

Thank you, that's a good strategy and one which I plan on abiding by, except I'm not going to look at MarketWatch, just gonna pound my head against the wall, which is pretty much the same thing.

Whoops.
Arnott is baffling with B.S. Why didn't he just say the market will be up 11.3% in 10 weeks?

And NASDAQ is above 10,600. Don’t these people feel any shame maintaining a image that they know what the market is going to do? Poor newbies like Forrester just get sucked in repeatedly
