Most people who work have a retirement plan in a 401k, 403k
The only way to make a profit in these plans is in a bull market as all your money are long stocks or bonds. Self traded investments do not need to be in a bull market to make money as you control everything.

12:45pm cst... Portfolio still hanging with $7,100 profit in third down day in four this week
After going to estate sales for a few years now, I'm come to the conclusion that most in my area do a three day sale with no negotiation. The first day most items are sold at 'ebay' retail or higher. The second day the remaining items are discounted 25%, the third day the discount is 50%. Items that don't sell are typically taken to a local weekly consignment auction and sometimes many of the items go for next to nothing.
After going to many estates sales and talking to many of the patrons, my conclusion is that most of the buyers in the first hours are resellers...either those who sell online or resell from antique mall booths or thrift shops. Some of the higher price items resell at antique shops. Some of the early buyers are those who ship and sell to resellers in large market areas like New York. Prices in smaller market typically go for less than those in large markets. Large markets have more buyers and hence higher competition which lead to higher prices. Although I think most of the early buyers are savvy, they also fall to the frenzy at the opening and overpay for items that can be purchased online at same or lower prices. Many of the early buys are items such as jewelry, furniture, and art.
There are items, due to the sheer volume, where the estate doesn't price some items at retail. These are such items as clothes, books, and vinyl records. There are those who consistently go to those sections and use their smart phones to look up prices and look for steals.
In the future I will give my take on other items selling at estate sale. such as:. non brand glassware, brand name glassware and crystal, figurines, watches, pots and pans, mugs, past their prime collectibles, vintage signs, photos, military, tools, upcoming in-demand collectibles, collectible memorabilia (ephermera) such as posters, magazines,vintage documents, toys, etc. ...more to come.
....... Guns, coins.? ..sorry, don't see these at estate sales normally.

Forecast-beating U.S. manufacturing data stoked expectations that the Federal Reserve will lift interest rates which in turn has caused gold to drop and stocks in general.
2:10pm No need to be greedy...sold all DUST with nearly $150.00 one day profit.
A look at 15 stocks
WFC ...Buffet better sell as this dog will continue to drop drop drop. My recommendation is to sell short or buy Put Options
AMZN.. In accumulation mode... smart money buying it up as it continues to target 1,000 per shr
TSLA.. I am neutral on Tesla... As sales pushes it upwards, I see whiplash on the horizon
NFLX ....... Very volatile but overall trend is upwards after poor report
TWTR ........ .... I see somebody buying twitter... high risk high reward
BABA ..... good time to buy as is in holding pattern..overall trend.. Up
FB .... news of Marketplace hurts Ebay but still see FB as neutral
QQQ ... see a winner for the eighth straight year.. bought each yr in summer and sold late 4th qtr
AAPL ... getting interest from smart money.. one needs a lot of patience with this stock
GOOGL... weak of late but did hit all time high in September. Still has a long ways to go up more.
V .... Slow but good mover... might accelerate soon. keep eyeballs on it
AZO.. Looked at autozone for awhile but don't see any reason to buy
PCLN.. very likely to buy... just doesn't quit
BIDU ... Always liked the stock but just too erratic, requires near perfect timing...
UA.. Underarmour.. another stock I've liked in the past but hasn't done anything since last May
Beginning of a new month. Portfolio up three straight months, going for four straight
My portfolio sitting on $7,000 profit going into Oct. Let's see what'll it be at the end of October

1:30pm cst bought back AMZN shares.
Closed NFLX and sold some of AMZN. Ready to buy them again on further dip.
Even though the market has been tough the last two months, one day up, one day down, yet my portfolio keeps growing upwards in profit. WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING !
AAPL showing strength..
Sold some of AMZN, taking profit at all-time high price.
AAAA - THE BIG 4 A'S
Alphabet (GOOGL). At 19 times earning, growing better than that..considered cheap, talk about buying twitter and turning it into a money maker
Alibaba (BABA). Currently at 107...valued at 135. Growing Sales at a 40% clip!
Amazon (AMZN). Fab web cloud services.. Target shares at 1,000. Awaiting huge volume this Christmas season
Apple (AAPL). Unbelievable cheap, owns smart phone market, will get tax relief on overseas cash horde.
10:15am cst.. I have a limited order to steal and buy BABA at 106.50. Hope it drops a point to that today.
Bought more shares of AMZN today.
Bought more SCHB.
10:12am cst Bought 32 shrs NFLX at 96.74 (technical difficulties posting on website)
Some profit taking today... Looking at NFLX making a move.
Watching portfolio grow...
Sold all of BIDU and bought 2 more shrs of GOOGL.
END OF SESSION...TODAY'S MOVERS
AMZN BIDU UA MSFT SBUX
1:15 cst As FED leaves rates unchanged, sold JPM and bought the BULLDOG BIDU.
10:10 Cst.. Bought 50 shrs JPM at 66.79.
Limit order in on JPM...continuing to look at BIDU and MSFT. Should I get even more AMZN?
Bought 100 shrs SCHB (No commission).
the portfolio withstood a volatile week and held it's own
Oh Apple !
Bought AAPL, sold NFLX for profit.
My eyeballs are now focus on GOOGL. GOOGL among other things started a 2-day delivery service to compete with Amazon's prime. GOOGL is now expanding that service to other cities for 95.00 a year and considering overnight deliveries from such concerns as Costco. One thing needed by GOOGL to really compete is 'something else' in the $95.00 annual fee. That could be a media serivice like NFLX.
Remain lean and mean. We know what we're doing !
Sold all of FB.
We know what we're doing. Portfolio now lean but mean. In this stage of negativity and
volatility it was decided to keep only a few stocks active. Looking now for great buying opportunities.
