Peace of mind? Chun bo? Emergency fund may help us to avoid selling investment assets during market low at realized losses and locked in permanent losses to fund our living expenses. When we kept seeing our investment portfolio going down in value -10%, -20%, -30%, -40%, -50% and more. How many retail investors still have peace of mind? Some of sleepless nights; we could be blaming ourselves for being stupid for not getting out of the market earlier to level up our war chest to buy them cheaper and more. How to have peace of mind when market crashes into prolong bear market? You guess or really know?
