But with our 401(k) going through the roof (thank you, President Trump), it is nice to come in here and see what the individual stocks are doing.

I am sure you remember '08, but how about '00, and '87?   Just keep it in perspective.

I've been waiting for bitcoin's demise as well.  When your barber mentions bitcoin, you know it's about to crash...lol.

Exactly!

I sure do!  We took care of that last year by putting half of the 401(k) portfolio into slow growth; 25% into small caps; the other 25% is still in large caps. 

Not trying to be greedy here.

Had I ever thought Bitcoin would have went that parabolic, I'd have sunk money into it way back in the day and sold at the recent bubble top. But sadly, no.

Which recent bubble top would you have sold?  There's been so many.

I've been meaning to look at BTC futures.  I have no idea which way it's going to go next, but I'm pretty sure it's not going sideways.  If I can get decent reward for betting on a X% move, I'll bet it both ways.

How's everyone planning to protect their IRAs, 401(k)s, investment accounts and bank accounts when "President" Biden starts seizing assets of those who have more than they need?

 :shrug: Obama didn't do that though, although I do remember getting similar warnings about it.
