it's the crash of October 2014 all over again
 
I want to be the first to panic that this downturn will be ruiness.

Remember how bad it was in October? We are headed for at least that kind of calamity, possible worse this time. In fact we may never recover again. It may be a new normal in which stock owners report to work each day because the laborers are in charge of investment capital.


I just saw a dog living with a cat and they had a pet duck.

Was there blood running in the streets yet?

My fault, I moved $50k from cash to the Spartan Total Market Index fund right before the down turn.

Sorry all. :(

I'm rearranging all my deck chairs as soon as I get home this evening.

Did someone say buying opportunity?

But if you are momentum investing isn't it best to be the first to panic?

This too shall pass. Next!

Hard to get wound up, as I am listening to the Earth wheel sky band's Gypsy tango.

Quit whining, look at what has happened to us Canuckstanis. TSX is clobbered, down to ~ a year ago.

We can (but won't) buy a pretty good company with a 6% divi at a bargain price. Extra points: I did

I actually sold all my biggest stock gainers in the last few months. I was not feeling good and thought we are at the last part of the long bull market. I now see the market moving sideways and then down!!!. Now I don't know what to do with my bond funds.

fh2000 12-12-2014 06:27 PM

well, comparing to the high on 12/5, it is only down 3.7%.

I will panic when it is down 10%.

Crash of Oct 2014? What crash? It was just a correction. This time, it may be different!

You made me look. TSX is actually still up 3.6% YTD, and 7.7% the last 12 months. However, it is down -12.5% relative to its recent high in early September. It has gone back into the low of Oct. The US S&P is next!

I won't even be ready to start buying at 10%. Maybe 15%. Maybe 20. Yep, the S&P back at around 1600 would be a good time to buy/panic.
