    Another month, another automatic pre and post tax deposit into a basket of etfs.

    Yawn. I need to take a swing at something.

    Exciting times around here. I just added international exposure to the kids 529 plans. They've gone too long with just the Vanguard Total Stock Market. I fell victim to chasing returns and recency bias.

    Starting tomorrow they have Vanguard Total International Stock Market as well. 60/40 split.

    Now if only my Thrift Savings Plan had a true international fund...

    You'd be up nearly 3% in Abbott in what appears to be a downward trending tape at the moment. Or are you looking for a home run/strikeout scenario? My personal speculation there is RBLX $150 Jan 2023 call and I just saw strike 1 go by.

    Iím a pretty vanilla investor. Do all the things Iím supposed to with the money Iím supposed to*. I do maintain a small actively traded portfolio for fun/speculation/daydreaming about bagging a unicorn.

    Go all in on AMC like my neighbor. Heís absolutely certain the stock will continue to rise until he gets out🔥🔥. His wife will cut if off if he loses the whole basket.

    Considering that heís currently unemployed/bored and wife working her butt off to stay afloat; any amount he plays with is too much. Probably only 10k or so, but he better not lose a nickel.

    Possibly. but I think it's premature to speculate (I know the Fed did exactly that). The pandemic has been going on for 15 months now and has affected almost every significant supply chain by this point. It's certainly caused some price pressure, but I'd make the following points:

    1) Pandemics don't last forever. A year from now, if the pandemic has retreated substantially, the supply chains may well return to their previous equilibrium, meaning that price pressure might abate on it's own.
    2) It's far from clear that interest rate hikes are the appropriate tool to suppress inflation caused by supply chain disruption. In fact, it's arguable that the capital expenditures required to restructure these supply chains would be inhibited by rising interest rates. Not everything that looks like a nail needs hammering.

    I hope everyone transitioned their portfolios from value focused stocks to growth prior to this week. For example, Nucor(NUE) has dropped 16% in the last 8 trading sessions. Nvidia(NVDA) is up 7% over that same time period.

    Fed Governor Bullard suggested late 2022 timing for the first hikes with the asset purchases tapering sooner rather than later.

    Been watching the first season of Industry on HBO. About a group of London banking interns trying to make the cut at a prestigious bank. Supposedly the language and finance is pretty on. Been enjoying it. Baseball bats feature prominently.

    yeah, it's a good show...captures a lot of the intensity in an over the top kind of way.

    Iím not speculating, Iím in it for the long run because I believe in a fairer system of finance worldwide, so I bought more Bitcoin and Ethereum just this morning on the dipÖ

    Seeing an authoritarianism government scared of decentralized currencies where value is in the hands of citizens not politicians and elitist institutions is encouraging to me.

    Hope it was clear I was just kidding around. I wish all the posters here great wealth, health and happiness.
