    Maybe now is the time to bet against the Stock Market?

    Fed has flooded the system with cash. Everyone is excited about the economy re-opening. Wages going up. Time of your life!

    This reminds me of 1999, New Years Eve, I was at a party and everyone was bragging about all their dot-com stocking holdings. Poof.

    A friend of mine, now dead, told me when the market is orgasmic get the fuck out.

    Lot of people said the same shit in 1997. Market doubled from there.

    Maybe you right but the game is way more rigged in one direction than the other, and it aint down.

    Special Purpose Acquisition Company

    A special purpose acquisition company, also known as a "blank check company" is a shell corporation listed on a stock exchange with the purpose of acquiring a private company, thus making it public without going through the traditional initial public offering process.
    SPAC's are going to create the worst stock market bubble in history.

    What's your timeline? When you bet against the market you take a short position for a particular date. Did you have one in mind or are you going to keep shorting month after month until a black swan event nets you huge money and wipes out your previous losses? We'll share your sweat.

    Today's closes:

    S&P 500: 3,901.82
    DOW: 31,535.51
    NASDAQ: 13,588.83

    Let us know within the week when we are going to check back in and where you think the indices will be.

    By the way, CNN is still on the air, at least as of this morning. Want to extend your prediction to 2022?

    To be fair you can short the market but just selling what you got and moving to cash in order to buy back later. Using options to short the market (or short ETFs) is a professional game. I dont fuck with it.

    Feels like Ive only been able to do this a few times but you really only need to be right once to make it worth it over the long term. I sold it all in 2007 which ended up being the best decision Ive ever made. Avoiding that pitfall build a foundation that Ill build my retirement on.

    Seeing how CNN is actively looking for a buyer, my prediction is just early

    How is your prediction Gavin Newsom going to be President going? Guy is ready to get booted

    Just because I don't brag about money like you and head injury guy does not mean I don't have it. I have plenty but with 0% interest rates by the Fed you have to be borderline IQ 70 not to have a lot of money. Or just walk into traffic like head injury guy did

    You are obsessed with me, plenty of people have been since 2007. Stay in line

    OK, I don't consider that shorting or betting against the market but I see what you're saying.

    Trying to time the market is a fool's errand but I'm glad it worked for you.

    You said in a post we will be calling Gavin Newsom President in 2028 or something like that. It will take a while for me to find it, and I'd rather not use this mess of a search engine, however if you are proposing a bet, let me know the terms and I will consider taking your money.

    Yeah I said that as a joke to tilt everyone complaining about his hypocrisy on covid restrictions (which is real). I don't really predict that he will be elected president. But fair enough.
