So, some investors are (somewhat) resilient when it comes to when the markets have a (very) bad day. As if a 'Financial Armageddon' just blew annihilated the global markets in less than twenty-four hours.
Like the Crash in 1987, when the markets fell 22%. Or on Sepetember 29, 2008 - when the markets fell 7%. And when the markets went on a "selling" spree between October 11 and 12th, 2018 - combining the losses of 1400 points.
Some "professional" investors and fiancial "advisors" were saying that we (average investors) are (or were) being so "anti-fragile". As if we have no clue what we should buy..or when to sell. So, intead, the market basing in "assumptions" just sold anyways. Regarding any "facts" or "having any conscious about what we have in our portfolio(s).
I have stocks in Google, Amazon and Apple. Should I be "anti-fragile" about those stocks? Yes, I know they are "tech stocks". But we are not in a Tech Bubble yet...are we? Or is the Tech Bubble ready to burst and we could see the most devastating drop in the Gobal markets we have not ever seen before?
Is the [Fianicial] coming in ... (let's say in 2019)?
