If one has really deep pockets, day trading TSLA would be a gold mine, it moves 25-50 points a day.

I think anything water related would be an excellent long term investment, water is the most precious commodity on the planet, the next investment would be in air, companies that supply oxygen.

Gold is iffy, it could sink to 900$ an ounce, easily.
Diamonds are forever, a steadfast way to store money, not nessessarily a way to increase that money, but a safe place to park it.

Land, hmm. Not on the Coasts, not in a fire prone area, savy fast turnover would be time consuming and dangerous.

Did some day trading several years ago, didn't like having my time & focus tightly captured, stopped. Now prefer to tie off the tiller and relax.

Guess for when correction bottoms?

Soon?

My take is that the Trump administration removed and disabled so many NEEDED safegards that the misguided effort is now settling. Deep-pocket big business and market cheaters have taken their profits and screwed the regular '401k folks' another time.

Looking at the big picture.

Medical expenses, until either single payer or medicade are enacted, are going to explode.
The 1.1 Trillion "TaxCut" is still a white elephant to be delt with, and it adds 1 trillion a year for 10 years.
The dismantling of the EPA and reversal of it's policy's is going to be a problem.
The tariffs are going to be coming out of the pockets of Americans.

Bush went to war and caused the economy to fall off a cliff, Trump is Cliff Diving with every policy he undertakes, each one would cause fiscal disaster, add them up.

We aren't near a bottom, and we aren't even aware of most of the damage Trump is doing, we watch as Trump Dismantles the Diplomatic Corps, rips up trade agreement's, makes enemies out of our trading partners, he's destroying our ability to do business on a world scale.

Imagine in five years....the US fighting inflation of 50%, "like Venezuela", interest rates at 17%, at the rate Trump is dismantling the economy, it might only take 4 years.
