Who's ready for the downside?
Thanks for posting. Everyone is looking at $SPX 3000 at
the final target for wave "C", what if that never comes? What
if 290 was it? Then you will have a lot of people caught off
guard and could be in for some pain.
we are in middle of earnings...usually big drops unlikely to
happen because all the bad news is priced in.... my guess is any
dip will be bought
"in the middle of earnings season" yes, but can you even imagine
how bad those earnings are going to be with the entire economy shut
down. This will be like no earnings season wee have ever seen.
I agree. Also what seems most obvious usually doesn't pan
That's a good way to put it - from all the data and all the
analysis - what you expect to happen - most likely will not - and
what does happen is something you probably did not expect - hence
the advice of Matt and Steve and this site - manage your positions
in accordance with your plan and risk tolerance.
That's the best advice "trim and tail" as Matt and Steve say.
In my younger days, so many times I had good gains in a
position and watch it turn into losses. And there are times I
sold too early (ex. Bought Apple back in the day when
it was trading at $43/share. I sold it when it hit $150).
FB at $25 sold at $100. Although I was fine putting
those profits back into my trading account. Anyway. I
have found that have a sound trading system with a sound trading
plan is what makes traders the most successful. Just like you
would have if you owned a company (a business plan for each month,
6 months, one year, etc...).
