Stock market crashes are good for investors. You can make money from owning bonds and some stocks get sold off so much that they become insanely undervalued.

As long as your not holding stocks that are crazy overvalued then a market crash is not a big issue. It presents countless oppertuopport to buy some great stocks at a discount.

Trying to time or predict the market is pointless as stocks go up long term so if you just hold and buy more on the dip you'll still make money.

I'm not that concerned. Sites like Fool and others, even huge news sites, use random indicators to try and predict stock market doomsday. Eventually someone will be right, but for now I'm not going to worry about what I can't change.

Keep a percentage of your savings in a standard savings account, have an emergency fund and a steady paycheck, and diversify your holdings, and you can weather most any financial storm.

Today is my 28th birthday. I made it a goal to try and not stress out about things I have no control over. The overall market is one of those things. All I can control is the state of my own portfolio, and right now I'm about 40% savings, 20% Robinhood tech stocks, and 40% index funds/401k's. I'll take it!

Exactly. Every year people say the market will crash and it doesn't the bull rages on. A good investor can make money in any market.

Edit: Happy Birthday @Sherb always great reading your threads and comments. An inspiration to those younger and older. I'm 20 now and I'm glad I found business and IM/DM young.

What stocks you in? I remember reading your journey thread and that you were in tech. Was wondering what companies.

Keep in mind there is also $12,000 of margin in that total.

And then a good bit in Vanguard index funds across an VG brokerage and a few 401k's that are 100% VXXXX funds.

This Favorite Warren Buffett Metric Tells Us a Stock Market Crash Could Be Coming

Read full article - One of Warren Buffett's favorite valuation metrics is now at an all-time high.

Do you want to say something @Sherb ?

They simply print more money when the crash gets close. After 2008 all they have to do is print more money for banks and the banks buy the stock market dip using that money, since everyone let them bail banks out in 2008, now it's become routine to do so continuously via programs like "quantitative easing". They did it after the Brexit vote, they do it all the time when the market crashes, just print free money for banks.

Everyone is working 100X more than in 1980 because your money isn't worth shit any more, millenials can't even afford half a car but 8 people who own banks own 51% of the world's wealth. Why? Because they are allowed to print money, duh!

The only way to crash this system is if everyone realizes they're being robbed by the bankers and suddenly the new generation no longer agrees to work 10X more than the previous for the same money.

If people don't revolt, then the markets won't crash, because for example China just fell 3% overnight, the Chinese central bank announced they're gona print hundreds of billions of Yuan. They take all that Yuan and buy stocks and the market's come back up. Only problem is the previous investors now own the same amount of a currency that isn't worth what it was last night.

The present day banking system is a ponzi scheme. If people can't see that then they deserve to get robbed.

Nice holdings. I'm a pretty strict value investor so likely wouldn't buy most of them but they are defo. on my radar for the next crash/correction if they become undervalued.

I can see Google and Amazon being the 2 powerhouses of the World in the future. Amazon is super smart and making great acquisitions and getting into some smart markets. Google rules the web and is getting smarter every day.

Index funds are so smart to put your money into. I don't know why more people don't invest into them rather than trying to beat the market. Warren Buffett proved in his bet that the S&P500 would beat most hedge funds.

I always get mega confused with the accounts you guys have (401K etc.). Luckily in the UK we just have 2 main ones. ISA (tax free account) and SIPP (Pension which is topped up by the gvt. also got great tax saving advantages too).
