I'm not expecting a crash anytime soon.  Some of the tech names got to nosebleed levels, but we had a good tech correction in Sept.  The PE ratio on the S&P is too high for me.  For 2021, my guess is a trading range, where valuation comes down over time.  Ups and downs, in a trading range.

My swing trades typically last a couple of weeks to a couple of months and I focus on SPY.  During the Corona virus bear market I use more sector funds to avoid the bad spots in the SPY such as energy, hotels, and the airlines.

No crash, pullback soon. I'm not a tech guy so if you can retrace my post to Fib read it. If the market does not get an EXCEPTABLE stimulus now, we won't get one until February at the earliest of Biden wins. That and the rising covid cases is entirely too much indecision for the market to take. IMHO you'd have to be crazy to buy i to that scenario at current valuations. (JMHO)

Was also the end of an expiration cycle back then also.  I'm sure the put sellers were happy lol!!  I was a stock trader buyer back then and was a great day for bargains.  Had to wait till night time to know exact fills lol!!

I see it's not going to crash but range-bound till after the election day.  My strategy is to buy dips and sell spike-up..............
