Real value investor, I see.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.
lol m8 this dude is 100 yrs old do you think he knows what is happening right now? too old fam too old
That one to Brooklyn? Great investment and a good return over a 30 year period.
How much are you looking for?
That’s pretty interesting. I read “The Intelligent Investor”, and it seems that is one of the best ways to invest.Yep, even go into asset plays/deep value investing. Lots of money to be made in Net Net stocks during crashes. Often cash per share can be higher than stock price. Gives a good margin of safety.
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!
So, do you think cryptos/BTC is here for long term @bartosimpsonio ? because government/banks can't control/print BTC [Bitcoins] and only 21 million BTC will be in existence.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.

The book is a bit outdated though. Have you found big returns on value investing? I, personally, don’t have much experience, but want to start.
It’s true and largely due to trumps policies. The same policies he is implementing now are partly to blame for the recession prior.This Favorite Warren Buffett Metric Tells Us a Stock Market Crash Could Be Coming
