Autumn is the season of big market crashes!


Recommended Posts

Here is another zerohedge article that got me to thinking about when big crashes happen, I seemed to remember it was always after the Summer and so I had a look at the S&P and I found the following to add to the article:


  • The 1987 Black Monday crash occurred in October
  • The Dotcom bubble crash started in Sept 2000, the second leg in Aug 2001
  • The Credit crunch crash started in Nov 2007 but the big crash phase began in Sept 2008
  • The 2011 correction was in Aug & Sept
  • The 2015 correction, forestalled some say by the Fed and a mysterious buyer of US stocks, was in Aug & Sept

Is that really just coincidence or human nature at work?

I can hear the voice of Private Frazer even as I type;

"I tell ye laddie - We're doomed!"


On the upside - it's Friday evening and I'm about to head to the pub where all life's miseries will be solved!

(Well, until Monday morning, at least)


Have a good weekend,

The only difference is that Frazer was miserable about it where as I don't feel one way of the other about it so long as I can profit (and protect myself).  Forewarned is forearmed as they say, though it is amazing just how many people prefer the ostrich strategy...

    • It is a best practice to buy dip and sell high but this strategy mostly doesn’t go as planned because you can’t predict the final bottom. Some traders BTD anticipating a potential pullback which mostly doesn’t happen and this force some into panic selling. DYOR is mostly advisable but some people fail to know which analysis they should focus more on. When deciding to hold a token for a long-term FA is very important and its cardinal point should be thoroughly scrutinized before making such a decision. These points include; Whitepaper, Road map, and Usecase. These points have a huge impact on deciding how long to hold a project and also booast your confidence in the project's bullish potential.  The first principle in this industry is “invest what you can afford to lose" though many neglect this principle as such when a project is going through a price correction they panic sell and sell at a huge lost. Most normal regret their decision later when they see the project back on track. Once you adhere to the first principle you hardly fall victim to panic sales. Note that it is mostly not advisable to hold meme tokens una less you are convinced because meme goes with the hype and finds it hard to retest its ATH once the hype is over.  Anyway what are your trading strategy and principles you adhere to most?
