Holding and buying as always. Why be worried if you're investing for the long run? Isn't a sale exactly what you want? If you're concerned, you may have invested more than you can afford to lose. Or you need to stop looking at the charts everyday.

No I am not worried. I will just keep buying when I have money just like did in 2000 and 2008. So far this is not even remotely close to that.

I rebalanced my portfolio to 40% cash, 30 % bond, 10% total market, 10% emerging market (China), 10% Global ( Europe) beginning of the month, boy oh boy, So Glad that I did that. Will wait the tumultuous market to stabilize before rebalancing to 100% stock again

Yes. I’m heavy in tech and growth, so I am concerned. This has definitely delayed my retirement: :(

I’ll be the contrarian. While I agree, don’t sell in a dip, your asset allocation is likely not appropriate for your risk tolerance. Everyone has a different risk tolerance and none are wrong. What is harmful is taking on too much risk for your tolerance and then selling low because you’re scared. Having a mix of only the current hot performing sectors (tech in your case) is not optimal. Diversify and have other areas. If you have little interest, look into VT or a combination of VTI, VXUS and BND. Then you’ll be diversified, it might give up some gains when tech is over performing, but you’ll be better positioned when the market moves.

All markets are bull markets over a sufficient time period No changes from me Same asset allocation (100% equity split over US index, Intl index, Small cap value, and REIT). Plus my cash + emergency funds.

I'm doing what I honestly shouldn't be and that's buying more (I'm sort of saving for a down payment). The condition in the market is making it very hard to not take advantage of all these deals on certain equities that are almost never discounted.

I wanted to buy avis @$8

Is it a stretch to buy a $900k house with about $180k income? The conventional metrics would say yes, but our budget works. We figured about $4000/m for PITI, $3000 for non-housing expenses, and $2000 for savings/investing. No debt and $50k in savings. We have about $200k for the down payment. Am I missing anything here or is this actually doable?

5 years away from Reserve retirement. O3, O4 in 1-2 years. Retire as an O4. Anyone else been sticking it out and at the firm? Feel like it's going to be hard. I almost got out, but then when I stopped seeing the extra $600 a month, and realized what I would be losing with free healthcare and a pension...just doesn't seem like it's the best move to get out. Start grad school next year too. My commander is awesome and the unit is flexible, which is why I think I could stay. Just don't want it to hurt my consulting career. Thoughts?

A friend of mine is worth $20M because of RSUs he got in a startup.

Does anyone have any tips for me to overcome the jealousy?

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
