- From BennettWoodman:
We would like more active managers to perform like the committee that manages the S&P 500. A basket made up of companies [e.g. $CHK $RIG $M $BBBY $CPRI] that were dropped from the S&P 500 $SPX over the past 3 years is down 47% this year or 5x the decline of $SPY
- From frandsen_paul:
@EdgeCGroup Well said for anyone willing to listen. Most won’t. Wonder is this how things felt in 1929 before the #stockmarket eventually dropped a total of 87% over the following 2.5 years? Does #historyrepeat? Similar drop would put #SPX S&P 500 in the 400s some 33% lower than 2009 bottom
- From TrackingMarket:
Dont be angry! Since April 29, 2020, S&P 500 $SPY $SPX is only up 0.14%. Remember, intraday is just robot noise. 3% today, -5% over 5 days, its all BS. If you’re a premium seller, this is where the resistance is. Show me how bulls move 10% higher from here!
