Is this overheated market playing to the tune of Roxette Song “Crash Boom Bang”?

People have been calling for a crash ever since the last one in 08(me included sometimes) The fact of the matter is no one knows. You can only have an opinion. Take Dr Clive Roffey for example. He has been calling a crash for who know how long? Even if it does crash some time in the near future it will likely turn above the level he originally called for a crash.

Its amazing... its always when a bull market goes on and reaches a certain level that everyone starts to call the crash, some sit on the sidelines while the market makes high after high saying how illogical it is etc... Goldman Sachs thinks this bull market (obviously in USA) will go on for a bit still...

Not a crash but an extremely violent shake.

wasnt there such a saying that the last phases of the bull market are the most profitable ones? Nice article on the 4 stages of the bull market... lets discuss where we are now? http://www.futuresmag.com/2010/09/01/four-stages-of-a-bull-market-and-how-to-profit?t=financials

as much of discussions and charts and forums one can read and form opinions one thing is certain. the market will do its own thing. simply follow it. the stress will only arise if you are fearful in which case why are you a participant in it? imo, just trade. if investing remind yourself why you invested and what was your goal, if its achieved and then some, look for other opportunities

Ok - so crash is coming huh? Here's a question: is it better to try to time the crash, sell your holdings, incur the capital gain tax (assuming you have one)and wait for the bottom and get back in, incur the cost of entry again...or is it better to sit with your holdings, and ride out the crash and wait for the eventual upturn again and hope its only a correction? I seriously have no idea....

unless you you time it perfectly (and anybody saying they reducing exposure so far has timed it wrong) .. best to just ride it out as a long term investor ..

That's what my seriously non-professional-investor mind is telling me to do....I might trade some of the bumps though
