So, I guess that since the stock market is doing well
everyone is making money on their investments.

Anything in that will go beyond the bubble?

The saudi gov considers to free the imprisoned billionaires if they part with up to 70% of they're money and hand it to the rulers.

Its always about money, your money, you are not suppose to have any and if you do you are by definition a terrorist, money launderer, drug dealer, prostitute or speculator that needs to be dealt with....

The way that sovereign wealth funds parcel out dough for investments, at least in some parts of the world, can make your hair stand on end. Here in the US, state and local pension funds investment management fees don't go for performance, they go for political favors.

Sure - the situations are equivalent.
In the same way landing on the Moon is like parallel parking.

Friend of mine is trading calendar spreads on bitcoin futures at the CME (link).

Take a long position in the March-2018 bitcoin futures and, simultaneously, take a short position in the Feb-2018 bitcoin futures.

I think he's nuts.

US equity market is showing that its underpinnings are under some early stress -- companies like Tractor Supply taken to the woodshed, but Boeing up 20 points in 2 days.

I am of the view that ETF's have made the markets less efficient. All the brokers do is move their retail clients into mutual funds and ETF's -- the typical retail broker has lost interest in individual stocks, and their managers are petrified of an AE going off the ranch and recommending individual companies to their clients.

Long forgotten thread but here's a new fresh study from Oxfam published on 22 January 2018.

Work diligently, do what is right and get screwed.
