Is Bear Market that Scary??? (2)


Read? Is Bear Market that Scary???


Casino, Share Financing and Leverages 


Human emotion in dealing with escalating losses and hope to recover from huge losses at all costs is unbelievable when we are in good times and sensible. 

How can it happen when we know we are in control? How come?

This Chinese's saying on escalating losses in gambling, leveraged speculating and investing is evergreen.

Lose until Mad!

    Losses and seeking financial independence same same?

    How much is enough then we shall stop it?

  2. It depends ...

    Those who are young & starting to save and invest for retirement should be on their knees praying for a HUUUUUGE bear market.

    Those who are relatively good momentum traders should also be going to church/temple/mosque every week praying for BIG bear market.

    Those in their 50s or 60s or 70s with large allocations to equities and being "fully invested", but who lack tactical asset allocation skills, will be CRUSHED by HUUUUGE bear.

    That's what happened to many baby boomers in the US when GFC occurred. Many had to delay retirement; many others had to come out of retirement, as their retirement funds kena demolished.

    Lucky for them got Paulson, Bernanke, Geithner, Obama to the rescue & make them whole again within 6 years.

    1. Any financial advice, view or tip has to be dispense at very personal financial level. General assumption is seldom sustainable as each household is different so their financial needs and goals tend vary.

      Younger tend to have time but may lack the account size. Older may have larger account size but lack of time. :-)

  3. What are the 3 Best things to have for investing in the stock market?

    1) Longevity.

    2) LUCK (GOD'S Blessings)-depend on what you belief.

    3) Deep pockets.

    To me Deep Pockets can be built up.

    Most of us are average working class.

    And who say me @ 69+ is not looking for or anticipating another round of Big Bear?

    HA! HA!

    Go and ask WB.

    I have said, "It's ain't over until you are over".

    This is part of my thinking or philosophy.
