BTFATH (Buy The Fucking All Time High)

“BTFD” (Buy The Fucking Dip) dates from 2010; investors should buy stocks when the price dips because it will go back up. “BTFATH” (Buy The Fucking All Time High) means that stocks are increasing and will continue to increase, so people should buy more as prices go up.
 
“BTFATH” has been cited in print since July 23, 2013. Both “BTFD” and “BTFATH” have been popularized on the financial blog Zero Hedge.
 
“STFR” (Sell The Fucking Rip; Sell The Fucking Rally) was coined in January 2011. This theory holds that if the price of an asset rises, then it’s time to sell.
 
“BTFWWIII” (Buy The Fucking World War III) was coined by the Zero Hedge blog on Twitter on March 2, 2014. The United States and Russia were both causing civil unrest in Ukraine, possibly leading to World War III. All of the jocular investment strategies poke fun at a stock market that is seemingly manipulated by fiat money printing.

I’ve heard of BTFD (buy the f*** dip), but only recently in a CTRL-ALT-PRT world have I heard BTFATH (buy the f*** all time high!).

This Morning’s Futures Levitation Brought To You By These Fine Events

Naturally, US futures wouldn’t be left far behind and took today’s first major revenue miss of the day, that of DuPont, which beat EPS and naturally missed revenue estimates, as bullish and a signal to BTFATH (all time high).

From Great Rotation To Disorderly Retreat - Where’s The Line In The Sand?
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 07/23/2013 20:36 -0400
The on-again-off-again ‘great rotation’ from bonds to money-markets to stocks has (so far) seen retail flood into stocks as the BTFATH mentality is rife.

Stocks Drop Most In 3 Weeks As BTFATH Fails (For Now)
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 07/24/2013 13:57 -0400
Did the world of retail investors just realize that they are indeed the greater fool (as we showed here), as it seems this high-volume dip in US equities - the largest since the July 5th ramp-fest began - is not seeing the BTFATH mentality coming in quite yet. Or perhaps it is the somewhat belligerent tone that the President is using towards the hard-working US CEOs who see profits over employment.
