Who else is ready for the market to crash?

Reddit Stocks

22/07/2021 - 00:01

So I'm wondering what other people's perspectives/plans are when the stock market crashes. I personally haven't bought a single paper asset in over a year. Stock markets are at all time highs right now, I honestly cant understand why a long term investor would buy paper assets right now. Short term plays make sense, the stock market has always been appealing to the get rich quick type, however this year has shown me that people are living in fantasia. My friend truly believes AMC will top 1k, that is living in fantasy land, but he isnt alone lol. I've chosen real assets(gold, silver, real estate, precious gems/metal) in preparation to make $ off the crash, I'm also learning how to buy property without using any of my own $. Cash flow business makes debt obsolete. What's your hedge? And damnit dont use the C word, as much as I love it and buy it these mods will remove my post   submitted by   /u/TravisRedleif [link]   [comments]

  2. Isn't "the market will crash" a self-fulfilling profecy? (13/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I mean sure, there are periods where actual hard facts bring the market to a crash. But I'm seeing a lot of "experts" saying the market will crash. Doesn't that kind of make it a self-fullfilling profecy? I mean if investors think the market will crash, the market will crash as they will all start pulling out, crashing the stocks. Seems a bit ridiculous! And it's the last thing we need now, during pandemic recovery.   submitted by   /u/ThePerson_There [link]   [comments]

  3. What’s with all the market crash sentiment? (10/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So, recently I’ve seen an increase in posts that are stating that a market crash is on the horizon. I’m not very concerned, as there hasn’t been a time where the market has crashed and not recovered. I know about fears of inflation rising, as well as the market currently being perceived as overvalued. My question is, where are the signs of an upcoming crash (if any)? In general, what are the signs to look out for?   submitted by   /u/maximalsimplicity [link]   [comments]

  6. Predicting a stock market crash - A self-fulfilling prophecy? (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    The current discussion of a potential market crash has me wondering if when a lot of people anticipate a crash in the next time the possibility of one actually happen can increase. Falling stock prices can lead to quick thoughts about a potential crash and even more selling resulting in a crash. I know Fundamentals are becoming less and less important if we look at Tesla or thousands of new Biotech stocks but cant this situation partly be justified by a change of trader philosophy. Increasing retail investors and more coverage of the stock market (mostly due to GME) has led mainly amateur traders to buy some stocks because they like them, they see this company becoming useful in the future, even if numbers are mediocre at best. Due to the fearmongering of a stock market crash many investors and traders are becoming more sensitive to volatility and are preparing themselves. What is your opinion? Just some late night thoughts   submitted by   /u/La_Mantequilla [link]   [comments]

  7. Why I don't believe the market will crash in the next week or two (27/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Let me start by saying that I am a bear, and believe this market will implode spectacularly rising bond yields across the globe have a much bigger effect than people think, but I don't think we are crashing today of right now. I really can't see the market crashing before the stimulus or before reopening, however a forward looking market needs something to look forward too, and once the stimulus has passed and we have reopend, that's when I'd be worried. Also bubbles pops always happen after the most ballistic period, I mean the market goes nuts look at dot com, Japan, South sea. And we haven't seen that yet with this bubble. if you are new I would hold and don't panic sell, if you are invested for the long term crash or no crash you will do well.   submitted by   /u/ilai_reddead [link]   [comments]

  8. Does the US economy going down really still affect the US stock market anymore? Considering all the new international investors now. (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I keep hearing analyst, in particular Michael Burry warn of the S&P 500 going up when the economy is going down being the catalyst of the next market crash. In the past this has been the case due to limited trading platforms and less international retail / institutional investors. However with all the new international investors (both retail and institutions) pouring into the US market nowadays, does the idea of the US economy going down while stocks are going up being a catalyst for the next market crash, still hold true? For example, i can definitely see a market crash if the US announces a major recession. However wouldn't the international investors see this as an opportunity to buy? Knowing that the US is most likely going to recover in the following years after a crash (as it always does). Apologies if this isn't a well-structured question. I'm still relatively new with investing (this being my 4th year) and english isn't working for me right now.   submitted by   /u/Butt_Lord [link]   [comments]

    While new to the stock market, I would bet there is always someone, somewhere every year and every day talking about a crash around the corner. Being new I know that I know nothing, but do have stop losses set for my bigger positions on the off chance. If you think we can expect a crash this year - why? And what are you doing about it? Please no bear vs bull rhetoric - I’ve seen this topic touched on in other non-crash posts and it always turns into our side/their side and I’m not looking for that.

  13. What do you do when you expect a correction or crash? (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I started investing shortly after the crash last March, so I don't have much experience with this and I was wondering what others have done when they expected a crash or correction. I plan on holding all my positions in my long-term stocks such as AAPL, MSFT, etc. But I was thinking of pulling out some of my short-term stocks. Does this seem like something that would be logical if I expected such an event to occur? I know we can't time the market and don't know when the next crash will be, but just in case I expect it at some point and need to make a decision, what do most of you do? Personally, I know the market tends to bring new highs after a crash or correction, but I thought it would make sense to take out some shares of stocks in case they took a big hit.   submitted by   /u/llfruge [link]   [comments]

  15. Are the last few weeks just the beggining of the real crash? (09/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I'm here because I honestly could not find an answer anywhere else - I heard some people say that the correction we had in the last weeks is just the beggining of a much much sharper crash that will recover very slowly. When I read recent articles online they do not refer to the last weeks as a crash, but instead suggest that a crash will come, like nothing has happened so far. I'm new to the stock market - is it indeed expected to keep crashing massively? Is it correct to state that the crash has barely started? Should I be patient and hold, or find an opportunity to escape?   submitted by   /u/yf_22 [link]   [comments]

  16. What’s with all the market crash sentiment? (11/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    So, recently I’ve seen an increase in posts that are stating that a market crash is on the horizon. I’m not very concerned, as there hasn’t been a time where the market has crashed and not recovered. I know about fears of inflation rising, as well as the market currently being perceived as overvalued. My question is, where are the signs of an upcoming crash (if any)? In general, what are the signs to look out for? EDIT AND UPDATE: Thank you all so much for your responses. Some comments in this post are quite complex for an investor like me lol, but in general I’ve got the idea that all of these stimulus checks, the unemployment numbers, the overvaluation, the excessive money printing, the sneakiness and deceptiveness, all of it shows that a market crash is on it’s way, but that it’s not something to be very worried about for the immediate future. I’ve seen people’s estimates range from next week to never lol, but what I’ve learnt from this is that it’s not possible to totally predict a crash, although they are indicators and events that suggest one may be nearby, and that it’s good to have a decent cash reserve on hand to buy at lower prices and to average down. Thanks once again for your helpful responses, hope y’all have a great trading week ahead :)   submitted by   /u/oscar11125 [link]   [comments]

  17. Reduce exposure for upcoming correction (22/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello, I just wanted to remind people before the bloodbath that is coming down the pipe do your best to diversify and reduce exposure to certain frothy sectors of the market. It's highly probable there will be a correction within the next 12 months. Big investors like Bill Ackman are selling more than buying the same with Buffett they often leave clues before a crash. Berkshire Hathaway is sat on over $150 billion in cash ready to buy up stocks. I would also listen to Michael Bury. He's always laughed at but often gets it right. Anyway, that's just my humble advice. Most retail traders who onboarded after March 2020 will be wiped out in this next crash I guarantee it. I'm predicting the EV sector will never get back to its current heights and will be like a dot com bubble type reset where most of the stocks just go to penny stocks and never return. The way to survive any crash is having cash on the side. Diversifying. Investing in stuff with a dividend is nice as at least they pay you to hold the bag. If you're buying stocks now at an all-time high RIP. I could be wrong but this is investing. I just use probabilities. The probabilities of a crash coming soon are very very high. The further the market goes from reality the more probable it becomes. Interest rates will likely be the cause but it will probably happen before them. They don't make it that easy to time these things. Kind Regards Humble Investor.   submitted by   /u/athetopofahill [link]   [comments]

  21. How low does this go and when to buy? (23/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So of course I want to try buy this dip when it bottoms out. Currently I am holding cash for that occasion. I am wondering what is everyones current theories about this market dip. Will it crash? Will it start recovering tomorrow? will it continue dipping for a week or a month? Personally I am expecting most of this week to be red. Though I think we may see it start to recover by earliest friday otherwise in a week or two. I don't think this is the crash. I think the market is inflated and I think there very likely could be a crash later on in the year, But right now I think people are just reacting to the idea that there could likely be a crash in the future. Similar to when we see overhype around good news for a stock and it skyrockets and then corrects. I think this is overhyped fear. Anyway A lot of valuable companies have currently dropped to very appetizing lows.

  27. Cash IS a position. (11/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    If you have gotten good gains and the overall market is close to a top you add to your cash position. If you believe in position size limits you build toward that level. If the market makes a 5% to 10% correction you don't sell anything, you just wait. If your best stocks are down add to them if you want. If not you can pick a new stock to add to your portfolio. When you begin buying reduce your cash position from 30% down to 5 %. Always hold some cash. If you see a bad crash in a stock be ready to snap some up. If you have no cash and are long on margin you will learn why cash IS a position.   submitted by   /u/TontineTrader [link]   [comments]

  35. Market crash mitigation? (09/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    One a scale of 1-10, how stupid is it to sell my roth IRA funds (Vanguard, $30k in VTSAX and already maxed for the year) and keep it in the settlement fund so I'm relatively safe if the market crashes from say... GME? I'd keep it in the settlement fund for a few months, and if nothing happens then I re-invest it. If the market does crash, then I trickle it back in for the dips. Since I don't have a lot on the line, I feel the like the opportunity cost isn't significant (I'm only 27, so plenty of time to make up a ~1k loss of growth), but the potential gain could be worth it. Looking at what happened in 2008, or even the beginning of COVID, a crash does have noticeable effects on VTSAX. I know that you can't time the market, so normally I wouldn't consider something like this. But with GME doing its whacky stuff, and the possible effects it could have, I feel like this isn't a normal scenario so abnormal moves should be considered.   submitted by   /u/heyufool [link]   [comments]

  41. Huge Crash or tiny crash or no crash or who knows what (27/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Something changed in the 21st century. And that something is our government printing money and sending stimulus checks left and right. The Fed is essentially acting like a market hedger now. I also think that given our extreme political polarization, no party can afford to oversee market crash without trying to fix it somehow. This is insane, that’s not what government is supposed to do. But it is doing it. So yes, it may crash in 2021 but by 2024 nobody will remember it. And given that now everyone is invested in the market, shareholders became too big too fail. So S&P drops 50% and all pension plans and 401k take a hit and what will happen? We will have retirees living on government cheese? No, they will print more and will send more checks. Because if they don’t they are out of power at next elections. This has not been the case in the 20th century. People had stable pensions, were invested in government bonds, could live off social security. People actually aspired to go to college and relied on their careers to build wealth, not stock market. Now we are all in equities, the entire society. And finally, if you look at what’s going on with personal finances and purchases - people want more and companies can’t keep up. There is shortage of everything from Peloton bikes to glaucoma medication. We don’t see built up of inventories, it’s the opposite. Even housing market isn’t suffering - there is shortage of houses/condos. When people are bearish they don’t take out $1M mortgage. Now, of course if you need your money next 2-3 years, don’t put it in equities. But this has always been the case. Otherwise, I am now more worried about my cash turning into junk than market crashing. Because market will go back up eventually, but cash will not.   submitted by   /u/Dowdell2008 [link]   [comments]

  42. Can I front load a 529 plan in case of market crash? (21/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I usually put $1000 per month into the kid's 529 plan. Let's say there is a crash sometime this year. What is the max I can put? What I read is that you can put at most 15K per year per child as annual gift tax exemption. I also saw some articles saying you can put 75K lump sum. If I have spare cash I want to utilize market cash to fund 529.   submitted by   /u/FitSkirtShirt [link]   [comments]

  43. Will there be a big COVID induced crash soon? I know it’s impossible to predict the market but just curious... (18/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I’m no economic expert but it just seems weird that the covid crash was so short lived. I guess that was because the us gov bailed out the economy with billions in stimulus. And now the markets are at all time highs. It seems weird that after more than a year of millions dying and millions not working and productivity down because the world went into hibernation, yet the stock market and other markets immediately went so high again like nothing bad ever happened. I know the federal reserve probably did this to prevent a big depression. It just feels like an artificial high and that all of that covid terribleness will catch up finally to the markets and the free gov money will stop and then things will crash. Is it possible that something terrible can happen like covid and the gov prints lots of free money and there will never be a crash caused by this pandemic, and that a future inevitable crash will be caused by something else? Has there ever been something like this in USA history, like a great flu in USA back in like the 1900s or 1800s and the government bailing out the economy and then it crashing or the government just letting it crash without a bailout? Or maybe that covid was something that affected the whole world it is different than something that just mainly takes place in America like the housing crisis or the dot com boom? Will it be a sudden big crash or a slow downturn? ​ Again, I’m a complete amateur when it comes to economics and know no one can predict markets like the stock market, but these are my thoughts (mainly regarding the USA economy because I live here and I don’t know much about markets in other countries). How about your thoughts?   submitted by   /u/poopyfacemcpooper [link]   [comments]

  44. Is this the start of a market crash??? (19/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    There seems to be a clear trend today, and this week, in regards to a market correction or sell-off. By definition, a market correction is any decline of 10% from a recent high. A bear market, or market crash, starts at 20%. For context: NASDAQ is down about 2% from its recent high https://imgur.com/Hjtq0gA Dow Jones is flat, only down 0.4% https://imgur.com/MqVc28i S&P 500 is down almost 1% https://imgur.com/2hqEzl1 Russell 2000 is down the most, only 3.5% https://imgur.com/ITMIH5j None of the major indices are close to correction territory. While individual sectors may be worse off, that does not equate to the market as a whole being in a correction. Invest in fundamentally strong companies and don't panic. The market occasionally has red days, and red weeks, these are times to add to your positions.   submitted by   /u/MotownGreek [link]   [comments]

  45. What will happen when the FED starts tapering? Are we going to crash 50%? (05/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I feel slightly nervous as of late with the market although of course I'm happy "making money" (on paper of course). What do you really think will happen though this fall? This winter? Later? I'm fairly confident that Jerome Powell is an expert at all this stuff and must be one if the most capable, if not most capable, person doing his job. So when the FED starts "tapering" are we going to correct or crash? Some say the Fed has already begun tapering? Do you honestly think that the market will sell off 50% or more? I myself don't think that is realistic or that the Fed would even let it happen? I'm obviously no market expert or economist, as I'm sure you can readily tell lol, but I think if we correct it would be more in the 10 to at most 15% range? I would suspect that a 40 or 50% crash would "kill" the country in its current state? Meaning Americans would really be hurting economically.

  46. 18 year old wanting to invest long-term before going to the army. (12/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hey Reddit I usually lurk around here looking at discussions of certain stocks I'm thinking of investing it but I am in a special circumstance. I'm turning 18 in a month or so and am getting about 2500$ from a trustfund I also have around 1300$ in hand. I will be taking part in the army for 2.5 years so I thought I should invest the money so it can grow and pull it out at 25 or so so I have a good financial base to start with. I've been studying ETFs and individual stocks but have been hearing about a market crash from a lot of sources recently and also I've been looking at crypto since it's booming rn and isn't connected directly to the stock market. I understand that long term investments mean that you shouldn't be too worried about market dips. since Im probably going to be in for around 7 years I'm afraid the crash will affect me more since I don't have too much time to let the market recover but at the same time Might be waiting too long for a crash that wouldn't happen and miss the bull run gains. Is now a good time to get in? Should I wait for the crash and buy low or take the risk and get in now? I'm relatively new to the stock scene but have been studying the market for a few months, what do you think is the best option for me to invest in right now? (I am also contemplating between buying a few picked diverse stocks, a good ETF and dividend Vs growth).   submitted by   /u/_SnickerDoodle_ [link]   [comments]

  47. 2000 tech crash vs 2008 vs 2020 crash (03/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I was way too young to know wtf was going on in 2000 and 2008 during the crash but I started investing beginning of 2020 so I felt the full effects of the crash which was scary but the thing was that it was a relatively quick drop and recover from what I understand. How was the 2000 tech and 2008 housing crash like? Was it a slow drop then leveled out before a recovery or was it a painful and slooow drop every day type of crash until 50% decrease before a recovery? For instance, I think 2020 crash was like a quick 2 month 35-40 percent drop then recovery. How scary was it in comparison to the 2020 crash cuz that sht was nerve wrecking especially for a first time investor haha.   submitted by   /u/joeroganthumbhead [link]   [comments]

  48. Crash-proof stocks (07/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I've heard some pretty persuasive material about an impending crash, and while I know you can't predict if or when it's going to happen, it seems like it could be a bad time to invest if I'm saving for a mortgage deposit. Which has me thinking: are there any companies/industries that are crash-proof, or at least more crash-hardy than others? Edit: by crash-proof, I'm not so much thinking companies that won't go bust. I'm more thinking companies that are less affected by crashes/recessions.   submitted by   /u/djw_7575 [link]   [comments]

  49. Why do people always seem to be saying the market will crash soon? (18/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I know the arguments that the market is highly overvalued right now and there is a lot of "easy" money going into stocks. But it seems there are always people sounding off alarms about possible imminent crashes. Going back to 2016, I remember many people saying that real estate was in a bubble. But housing prices have kept going up relentlessly. But now I see a lot of big names in investing saying the market will crash, from Charlie Munger, Ray Dalio, Warren Buffet, etc. are all saying markets are unreasonably high. Is it normal for there to be so many doom preachers or is there really something to worry about for the near future?   submitted by   /u/jmus9 [link]   [comments]
