Nice to read you guys put effort in learning your stuff.
I know old people in my community, they are retired, they bought stocks just for buying following their instincts and never went selling and buying. They are long time ex employees of Apple or any other tech company and they are living out of their winnings. I believe the long term of their stocks is what makes them winners, not the daily trade.
Remember that one of the very identifying aspects of the last bubble was the greed of people. The easy access to cash also helped to increase the bidding on properties, thus creating this fictitious sense of making money was too easy. And those caught at the end of the trade were the losers, those using the OPM, other people’s money, were the winners.
So, as an ignorant on the stock market and how you make your business, I would just say be cautious and read, and learn to identify the markers that will notify you of the impending crash, if any. You are a small fish on this ocean. There are high players in this stock market arena and they may be planning the next event that will make them winners.
Since I am a poor guy compared to you guys, I don’t have that much to lose, perhaps losing the equity on my home. But I can learn things from you.
Just a humble word of advice, don’t be too confident.
