Last week’s plunge in the S&P 500 (SPY) may make you want to pull yourself out of the market en masse. That’s a mistake, because volatile markets offer the best buying opportunities…but only if you know where to look.
I just read another email from a StockNews customer saying that this volatile market has been pushed to the sidelines. Then they “wait and see” to decide what to do next.
This is investment suicide.
I’m sorry, but there’s nothing else I can say. Still, this is he one of the most common reactions of investors when things get tough.
I would like to point out the insanity of this approach in the hope that it will lead people to a more successful investment path.
The danger of “wait and see”
On the surface, this looks very logical. To understand that the current market conditions are rough. The future seems uncertain. So wait and see what happens next and then plan your course.
Now reality check…
Consider the wisdom and accuracy of this time-tested investment. “There is always a bull market somewhere.”
Or, as my good friend JC Parets of AllStarCharts.com says, “Being in a bear market is a choice.”
So you can be an investment sheep led to slaughter with the masses.
For example, you might be surprised to hear that over 2,000 stocks roared bearishly in 2022 but were in positive territory.
What’s even crazier is that over 1,000 users got over 50%.
The point is, you can make money if you know where to look. So there’s never a good time to sit on the sidelines in “wait and see” mode.
This leads to the obvious question…
Do you know where to find winning trades regardless of market direction?
It’s okay to be honest. Because the overwhelming majority of individual investors don’t know the answer.
This is why the average investor performs 37% worse than the S&P 500.
too greedy to buy at the top
Too scared to sell at the bottom
