I did not say anything more or anything less, except that I get baffled by the extreme reactions of the market, that change from red to green, just in a matter of hours. I am not one bit worried by such moves about my investments or my trades.
Ups and down, swings are very much part of the market, in fact, they are responsible for people to get into and come out of trades, they are opportunities, I know this. The quick change of mood is what makes me puzzled for some time is all my point
And of course day traders make a killing on such strong down and up days, and I am sure all such traders here welcome such swings.
Regarding ETFs, although the indices are here to stay, that does not necessarily mean that we should not sell when they are falling (not exactly my case). Say I bought at 100, and it goes to 120, and starts falling week by week, and if I can see a strong selling on the charts, I will very well sell, pocket the gain, and get back at a lower price. I have got some experience doing exactly this. Opportunistic investing, if there exists such a thing.
Of course, if one is busy with work, and the market is inaccessible for days, or don’t like the churn, don’t like getting in and out, or the invested capital is big, and if tenure is very long, for such people, it is not recommended. I don’t have such restrictions, I sell and build the position slowly again, each person’s situation is different.
No offense, but Bond movies are for male audience, in the sense that, they have to be looked at from a male perspective, life of an agent filled with women, vehicles, gadgets, duty, honor, betrayal, surrender, revenge etc., and for the Craig ones, they created a story arc, and so it ended, on a satisfactory note.
