  1. 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]

  2. Stock markets across the world, In particular RTSI (24/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hi guys, I have a question about stock markets across the world. I know that all stock markets should in theory be going up, because of innovation, companies growing larger, etc. And usually, that is the case. But if we look at the Russian Stock Market (RTSI), you can view it on tradingview, that hasn't been the case. Since the financial crash of 2008, it still hasn't rebounded the highs, and has not been showing consistent growth like other stock markets across the world. Even if we take into account that Russia might not be considered capitalistic to the degree of the US, it seems weird that it has been 14 years, and the stock market has still not recovered. What is the reason for this? Could it be sanctions, or the fact that not a lot of non-government associated companies are allowed to be traded on it? Thank you.   submitted by   /u/Yl202369 [link]   [comments]

  3. Old guy says relax. You've literally been through 3 of these in the last year. (05/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    My dudes, here's some perspective: ​ NASDAQ went from 9785 to 6657 between Feb 20 and Mar 20. ~32% (Markets unsustainable! 'Gonna crash' yelled the news. covid helped that along) Then it when from 12,300 to 10622 between Sep 2 to Sep 22. ~14% (Markets unsustainable! 'Gonna crash' yelled the news. i dont even remember why) Current drop started around 13,891 on Feb 16. It's at 12,195 today (Mar 5) ~13% (Markets unsustainable! 'Gonna crash' yelled the news. something to do with treasury yields) any all the other 15% corrections/crash prior dating back to 2000. (Markets unsustainable! 'Gonna crash' yelled the news) My goodness, with all the self-therapy posts, it's like none of you were around before last month. Don't try to rationalize the reasons, the magnitude or the duration. it just is. if you're in long-dated options or shares, then relax. if it's not money you need immediately then relax. however, if it's neither of the above, then I suppose it is what it is. Source: Doing this since late 90s. current portfolio about down -6% (2021). Overall, since 90s, up about 500% doing literally nothing buy and holding most of the stuff and trading about 15% of account.   submitted by   /u/civgarth [link]   [comments]

  5. 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]

    Im curious as to what you guys would do to ride the storm of a stock market crash, In this scenario, lets say there will be a crash 30 days from now and stocks will fall by 40%, Now obviously you will have no idea of the crash coming as it can happen so quick, but would you attempt to exit the market on the day of the crash or ride the storm ?   submitted by   /u/SirFireside [link]   [comments]

  7. Who truly believes a crash is coming this year and what are you doing about it? (29/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    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.

  8. 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]

  9. How to deal with a market crash both before, and during the crash? (19/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm reasonably new to the markets, and i really need some advice! I'm not exactly sure how to approach an incoming market crash. Let's say the market crashes 20%... The best course of action would be to sell at the peak, prior to the crash. Very few people would achieve this, because no body can predict with perfect timing when this would happen. Most people would be reactive, and they would sell AFTER the market starts tanking. A few lucky ones, or extremely smart ones, would sell at the peak. Personally, I would most likely just hold and ride it out. Is this the right thing to do? I do feel confident my stocks will fair well in the future, hence, i would feel mostly ok riding out a crash, and just holding, rather than panic selling like most would. If i were to hold though, and ride it out, i would want to average down to get a cheaper price as the market crashes, so that when the markets do go back up, it would take me less time to start earning a profit again. Is this the right strategy? As far as having money to invest in an upcoming crash, should i start selling some stocks now in preperation for a market crash that will undoubtably happen, but may be months, or even years away, potentially having money sitting on the sideline earning me nothing. This is the bit i find the most difficult to decide on. I do have money in a savings account, but it can't be used for investments. I do have some stocks that are currently giving really good returns, so i could shave a bit of those to free up capital. It woud reduce my investment though, and if the market were to continue going up for another few months, or even years, i would be getting less returns. How are you guys going to handle a market crash, both before, and during the crash? Are you leaving some money on the sidelines in preperation for a crash? Are you planning on selling some stocks to gain capital to put towards a crash? Or do you have another strategy? What advice do you have for me in particular, and for my situation?   submitted by   /u/BlueHorizon87 [link]   [comments]

  10. Will the tesla stock crash back to below 700? (04/08/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I still believe Tesla stock is overvalued. Few months back Tesla stock rose to 800-ish then it crash to 550. Alot of people lost money. Seeing this extreme volatility of this stock. I believe this stock will again crash to back to its value. I have been reading post and people conversation; alot of them think it might go up to 1000. And many people are buying Call of this high value. Even thou tesla is not a meme stock and a strong company. This increase in its value all seems to be due to news of infrastructure bill. But what if it does not pass this week and delayed. Will it go back to 600 or increase. I am not that experienced but think this pump is temporary and its overvalued. What are everyone thoughts about this stock.   submitted by   /u/akhan2112 [link]   [comments]

  11. Could we see another crash like the 1990 Japanese one? (26/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Do you think we currently see some overlaps with the 1990 Japanese stock market crash? If I overlay the charts (obv. you can't just go for that 1:1) it has some similarities. On the other hand, would Jpow even let a crash happen? I have currently 90% of my savings in stocks, and I'm just a bit afraid of a greater correction. Would you take out some of it and hold on some more cash? I know time in the market > timing the market, this is why I'm fine with how things are going.

  15. Hypothetical: Delta Crash - Real Crash (23/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So Covid is indeed trending up again, even the US. Lets say this delta variant really starts taking hold in America and we get pandemic round 2. Sure the vaccine the vaccine, but Britain has decent vaccination and still getting rammed with Delta atm. so what do you guys think how do you play your hand? Liquidate now, wait for the crash and throw it on what? I was thinking of going big on UPRO & VTI. But what about ahead of time? Is there a window now to get in on biotech before a delta specific vaccine becomes mandatory? Any other plays like that that would make sense? If truly another shutdown type pandemic emerges again, perhaps that means doubling up on TSMC as semiconductors will be even that much more behind schedule. Trying to think outside the box but those were some of the biggest plays you could have made during the first crash right. Please share if there was a stock in particular you think now might be a good time to get in before pandemic version 2 comes, or a stock to maybe wait for it to crash then hop on that one. thanks   submitted by   /u/PaleontologistWest [link]   [comments]

    Let's say you knew with certainty an event was coming that would crater the market as you knew it. What would you back away from and what would you go -all in- on and why? Let's make it easier and say you could not short a position. What would you anticipate would go up as a prediction of a crash ? Where there are crashes there are almost always winners go inverse the other side of the equation. To make it funner - What causes the crash can also be up to you, for simplicity it would be good to describe what you think would be your apoc event that could cause your scenario crash.

  18. So illogical (05/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    This whole ride has been so illogical. March 2020: Covid hits hard and shutdowns begin. Everyone expected the markets to crash. Instead, the Fed pumped that shit and we’ve been on a historic bull run. They put trillions into the markets and pumped it artificially. Literally everything I bought was making me $$$. “Let’s make some moneyyyy” (Eazy E voice). Now, vaccines are rolling out at a greater rate and the pandemic is ending. Businesses are reopening and people are going back to work. You would expect the markets to flourish. Instead, we’re now reversing/crashing/correcting heavily. What gives?!? If the Fed just let that shit go in 2020, we would of organically recovered by now. Idk, maybe it would’ve been even worse, but I feel like the Fed fucked us. They fucked us hard. They kept us afloat and now just let go all of a sudden. Fuck you Fed, bail us the fuck out you bitches. Fuck fuck fuck. Mother, mother fuck. Mother, mother fuck. Noise noise noise.

  19. Stock Market Feels Rigged.....Not Against Investors....But to the Upside (27/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I can’t help it lately but I’ve been really aggravated and I’ll probably sound insane, but that’s fine. The market used to be so much fun in 2018, we would have crazy moves, headlines out of nowhere, then 2020-2021 came around. Ever since the crash and bottom was put in it seems like there are no headlines, like nobody wants to say anything and spook it. It bothers me to no end, the structure of it, and mainly the indexes. I noticed it in 2019. Before the covid crash, the market didn’t make a lower low for the entire year leading up to it. Then I took a look at QQQ from a long term perspective. On a weekly timeframe it has not made a true lower low in 13 years. How can that be possible? There really is zero risk and I can’t stand it. I’ve never wanted a crash more in my entire life. The point of investing is to take risks, but the market doesn’t challenge investors in any capacity. Even more frustrating is that nobody talks about it in financial media. Of course greedy boomers are fine with it but why are we as a society so protective of it? If there’s one thing we have learned in 2020 it’s that stock market crashes don’t actually lead to suffering, if anything the rally is worse for the country. I’m just venting but it’s made me hate the concept of “free markets” and this QQQ simulation is a bad look for capitalism   submitted by   /u/Rafiki0069 [link]   [comments]

  20. Looking at Timing of Stock Investments (28/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    There are two ways thrive in stock markets. One is to pick right stocks. Another is to time one's investments right. Stock picking is somewhat simple to measure. You just compare your performance with an index of your choice. Beating index is good, losing to index not so. But how can you measure your timing? Here's my attempt to visualize my timing success. I have sliced my stock history to half-year pieces and drawn how much and how profitably I have invested in each period. The farther back in time the investment goes, the bigger the profit bars should grow. Well, not quite in my case. This chart is not a clean picture of timing alone. 2010 - 2015 I did some pretty unfortunate stock picks and it shows here. Some periods have not broken even. Still, the chart has a story to tell. 2009 was a sweet time to enter market. 2020 looks good too. I think market timing is a way of value investing for a person with my mental capacity. I have no skill or patience to calculate intrinsic values of companies. I really don't think I can judge a company better than all the wise people playing the same game. As the picture shows, my stock picks can be horrific. However, I can recognize market crash when one comes. It is kind of easy - indexes go down 30% or more. In the bottom of the crash it seems that almost any stock is a winner. I don't even need to hit the lowest spot of the crash. The time window for good buys is wide. This is borrowing a page from Benjamin Graham. This is exploiting Mr. Market in his most depressed mood.   submitted by   /u/helanti [link]   [comments]

  22. 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]

  24. 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.

    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]

  27. Stock market crash! Here’s what I’d do if the FTSE 100 falls 20% (21/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Analysts are warning of a stock market crash (again). The FTSE 100 fell 100 points on Friday, and that brought out the doom mongers. Inflation is the main worry this time. As price growth hits 5% in the US, and 2.1% in the UK, many investors fear central bankers will be forced to reign in stimulus to stop the economy from overheating. That means higher borrowing cost, and less hot money flooding into assets such as shares. There’s a big debate over whether the inflation resurgence is temporary, or built to last. But right now, the answer is nobody knows. Even if it’s the former, investor nervousness could still trigger a stock market crash. So what would I do? Any investor who buys shares has to accept that the FTSE 100 could crash 20% at any time. That’s what stock markets do. They go up, mostly, but they crash pretty often too. Most people will remember the dotcom crash of 2000, the financial crisis crash of 2008 and last year’s Covid crash. There have been plenty more along the way, now largely forgotten.  Yes, the FTSE 100 could fall This volatility is the price equity investors pay for the superior long-term returns they generate from stocks and shares shares. Volatility isn’t a bad thing. Arguably, it’s a good thing.  I’ve trained myself to view a stock market crash as a great opportunity to buy shares at a reduced price. I don’t find it easy, buying when everybody is selling. I’m at the mercy of the herd instinct, just like everybody else. Yet I steel myself to take the opportunity when it arises. If the FTSE 100 does crash 20%, I’d aim to buy more of my favourite UK shares, at temporarily reduced prices. I’m not scared of a stock market crash I can take this ‘risk’ because I plan to keep my portfolio invested for the rest of my life. To retirement, and beyond. So any money I invest this year could be in the market for a further 30 years. That should give it plenty of time to climb in value. Another advantage of a stock market crash is that I invest a regular monthly sum into a pension. If share prices fall, I get more stock for my money. I also reinvest all my dividends. They pick up more stock, when share prices are down. When markets recover, I will own more shares than if they hadn’t crashed at all. Naturally, a stock market crash can be traumatic. Nobody likes to see the value of their savings plunge. Like everybody else, I’d feel better if the stock market shot up 20% instead. Not all shares are guaranteed to recover and any recovery might take some time. But history shows that, in the longer run, stock markets recover from a crash. It should happen next time too.

  30. Who else is ready for the market to crash? (22/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    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]

  37. The market is perfectly healthy, and not about to drop, or have a large correction like everyone suspects (Hear me out) (16/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I continue to see people being cautious of the markets, and though the vast majority of you will likely disagree with me, and most likely downvote this, just please read through it before hand. ​ The market if looked at from a simple graph looks absurd in comparison to previous years, 20% growth even after a crash! however, if compared to previous years this is not 'super uncommon' and still possible like 2013 for example. From this point on when I say the markets I am really just referring to the SPY, since its a simple and accurate portrayal of the overall market imo. sure, there are some stocks that obviously may crash, and are most certainly going to be argued about if they will crash or not, for example AMC, GME, etc. however, the overall market could not be healthier at the moment, we are currently coming out of a pandemic, and the largest companies are gaining more and more business as the smaller mom-and-pop shops are being forced to close due to a lack of business, while companies like AMZN and WMT have become evermore profitable in 2020 (while this may not be good overall, looking at it from a strictly stock market performance stance, its great news) due to this separation, and allowing big companies to do better, it makes sense the market is growing at such a rate (though maybe the 7-8% in march/April may call for a slight correction). companies like CCL, DAL, AAL, and other covid recovery stocks are also improving as their prospects look better going forward, and consumer spending is going to increase as we leave this pandemic behind us. interest rates are extremely low, allowing companies to further increase their profits, and grow as companies, in not creating crazy overvalued companies (there are obvious exceptions) I see many people worried about inflation, and showing various graphs that have flaws, such as the M1 graph I believe I saw on the home page here, or maybe on a similar subreddit, hinting that there is far too much money in circulation right now, but that graph has only gone up so much because of the shift from M1 not including savings accounts to now including them. Furthermore, comparing it to the 2000 bubble is not even fair, the 2000 bubble had seen at least 230% growth in the 5 years leading up, we have only seen around 100%. during the 2000 bubble, nobody thought the market would crash, and continue the increase, during this current market however, things couldn't be more different, everyone is trying to guess what will cause the market crash, you see it all over the news, on CNBC, barrons, and then in all the investing subreddits, trying to predict the next market crash. there are no crappy loans like in 2008, and again, like in 2008 nobody really assumed a crash, and everyone assumed house prices would just increase, however that couldn't be more different today, (with the stock market I mean). I believe this has just been an exceptionally good year, and may continue until 2022 or 2023 even, or may slow down soon, and just consolidate, but personally, I don't see a large drop like everyone is suggesting. If you disagree, that's up to you, but for the love of god, please stop putting graphs that don't prove anything about a crash coming, I've seen 3 different graphs posted make trending, trying to indicate a crash is coming, which I believe are unrelated, or are exaggerated.   submitted by   /u/The_Will_Here [link]   [comments]

How did the crash affect your investing strategy and your life? How did you get through it? I know many normal people lost their life saving, lost their jobs and got depressed. I don't hear a lot about traders' experience. At that time I was trying to solve 2nd degree equation and thinking about how to skip classes to play Dota, so I had no idea about the crash.

  43. The best shares to buy now for a stock market crash (17/09/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    As I noted in a recent article, some investment analysts and market commentators are becoming concerned that a stock market crash is just around the corner. While I always take these projections with a pinch of salt, I’ve been looking for some of the best shares to buy now to navigate a potential slump.  I’m looking for stocks that have the potential to perform in both bull and bear markets. To put it another way, I’m not going to bet everything on one outcome.  When I say I’ve been looking for the best shares to buy now, I mean I’ve been focusing on high-quality stocks. These include companies like Reckitt, Games Workshop and Computacenter. The best shares to buy now There’s a simple reason why I’d focus on these companies over other opportunities. No matter what happens in the stock market, people will still be buying cleaning products, tabletop models and require help setting up IT infrastructure. A stock market crash might have a small impact on the demand for these products and services. Still, I’m willing to bet people won’t stop cleaning their homes because the stock market slumps.  That’s why I think these are some of the best shares to buy now. I already own Reckitt and would also buy Games Workshop as well as Computacenter for added diversification.  Another company I’d buy to provide some protection against a stock market crash is CMC Markets. This financial services corporation makes money when investors bet on the stock market using its platforms. In periods of high volatility, trading activity on its platforms tends to increase. This can lead to higher profits. But remember, the opposite can happen when activity calms. Stock market crash protection Another opportunity is BHP. The prices of commodities such as iron ore and copper tend to move independently of stock markets. With governments around the world set to spend millions of pounds over the next few years on infrastructure projects, demand for these commodities will dramatically increase. As such, I think BHP’s profits will grow, no matter what happens to equity markets in the meantime. That’s why I’d buy the company for my portfolio.  Unfortunately, while I believe these are some of the best shares to buy now ahead of a stock market crash, they have their own challenges. Companies like Reckitt and Games Workshop have to deal with rising costs, which could eat into profit margins. Computacenter and CMC may also have to deal with higher wages, which could impact growth. And while BHP might be earning windfall profits from high commodity prices today, there’s no guarantee prices will remain elevated indefinitely.  Despite these risks, I think these five companies could help protect my portfolio against the stock market crash. That’s why I’d buy all of them today.  The post The best shares to buy now for a stock market crash appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  44. What I’ve learned 15 months from the stock market crash (29/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Let me put the stock market crash of last year in some perspective. It was just 15 months ago. In that time, the FTSE 100 index is up over 40% from the absolute lowest of sub-5,000. Following every twist and turn in the stock markets since, I was sure of having sussed out every single lesson from the crash. But when I did the number crunching on the progress since the stock market crash yesterday, it turned out that I had still more to learn. So here are my three new-found learnings.   #1. It is ok not to be prescient  Much as I would have liked to buy as much as possible at the lowest point, there is just no way of knowing when it would appear and what it would be. All of this becomes clear only in hindsight. And that is ok.  I do not need to be prescient. What I do need to know is the general time of decline. And that was March last year as we all know, no rocket science here. If I compare the average FTSE 100 index value last March with the average index value this month, the index is still up 23%. And that can be taken as a rough guide of what the return on individual FTSE 100 stocks would have looked like if I had bought them then.  #2. Keep buying as the stock market crash builds up If, however, I still do not want to miss buying stocks at low prices, I can keep buying successively as the stock markets fall. Last year, the stock market crash did not happen in one go, for instance. The downward spiral built up over weeks. If I am confident in a company’s fundamentals and if I can keep my nerve while the market melts down, I can make some cool profits in a short time.  #3. The same lessons apply to upswings  The market crash also has lessons as the index starts looking up. It can be an equally unnerving experience to buy stocks as the markets start rising. I do not want to make stock purchases and then get burned. In this instance, I find it helpful to acquire knowledge.  An idea of what the target share price is, how well the company’s financials are doing, and the broad sector outlook influence the share price and can hold me in good stead. This is especially true for long-term investing, which we at the Motley Fool encourage.  #4. Buy the dip, but of course Even in a rising market, though, there are plenty of opportunities to ‘buy the dip’. Short-term news can really rock a stock’s price. An example of such news can be changes in the top management, as was seen in the case of FTSE 100 luxury brand Burberry yesterday, which fell some 8% in a day. It is rare for such sharp dips to sustain, and if I have already understood the stock enough to buy it, they should ideally not worry me.  The post What I’ve learned 15 months from the stock market crash appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  45. I don’t care if stock markets crash. I’m buying cheap UK shares today (13/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    I think today is a great time to buy cheap UK shares, but then I would say that. I think it’s nearly always a good time to buy shares. I’m not scared that stock markets could crash if this year’s post-pandemic recovery disappoints or inflation makes a shock comeback. The ISA season is in full swing, and I’d rather buy cheap UK shares today than wait to see what happens tomorrow. The first reason is that a stock market crash is impossible to predict. At any point of the investment cycle, we will find somebody saying the sky is about to fall in. They may be right one time in 10, and will boast about that for the rest of their lives. The rest of the time they will be wrong.  Don’t try to time the market If I listen to the doomsayers I will never buy UK shares when they are cheap, and end up kicking myself as a result. History shows that over the longer run, shares go up more than they go down. It therefore pays to put my money in the market whenever I have some to spare, and leave it there. Timing my entry is hopeless. I will get it wrong more than I get it right. While I wait, my money will be earning next to nothing in cash. It is important to remember that shares pay dividends, as well as rising in value. The FTSE 100 is set to yield around 3.5% this year. Some top UK shares pay dividend income worth more than 6% or 7%, and many are cheap. I will not benefit if I am sitting on the sidelines, fretting over the next crash. Yes, shares do come with risk. But I will only earn that income if I buy them. And by diversifying, I reduce my single-stock risk. I think there are plenty of dirt-cheap opportunities out there right now. Naturally, if stock markets do crash, they would get cheaper still. On the other hand, if markets rose, they would get more expensive. Since I don’t know which is going to happen, the best thing I can do is take my chances and snap up cheap UK shares when I see them. I’d buy cheap UK shares now If markets do crash later, I won’t kick myself. I’m not to blame. Instead, I will take the opportunity to buy more UK shares, at the cheaper price. And I will leave the rest of my money invested for the recovery. It will come. I understand why some investors run scared of a possible stock market crash. Nobody wants to invest only to see shares crash next day. The best way round this is to drip feed money in, to smooth over the ups and downs. I invest every month. Sometimes I pick up UK shares when they are cheap. At other times, when they are expensive. Either way, it doesn’t bother me because in the longer run, buying and holding shares is the best way I know to build the money I need for my retirement. I’d make a start with top stocks like these. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic… And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.

  46. 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]

  48. Are we about to see a stock market crash? (12/09/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Last week, stock markets around the world were spooked by deteriorating economic data across the globe. This wasn’t exactly a stock market crash, but it brought back memories of last year. Equity markets around the world plunged when the pandemic began as it became clear it would have a significant impact on jobs and wages.  It seems unlikely we’ll see a crash of the same magnitude in the next few months. However, anything’s possible when it comes to the stock market.  Bounce-back  Equity markets have been on a tear throughout the pandemic. The S&P 500, the leading stock index in the US, has more than doubled in value from its March 2020 stock market crash low. The FTSE All-Share index has returned 45%.  It seems to me that some of this performance reflects economic growth. It also appears that equity markets were too pessimistic in their initial interpretation of how much of an impact the pandemic would have on specific companies. Equity prices have recovered as investors have reassessed the situation.  Some of the gains also seem to have been driven by central bank quantitative easing. With interest rates held at record low levels, investors and savers worldwide have plunged their cash into stock markets open for better returns.  The question is, what happens next? The pandemic is still raging around the world, but economies have bounced back. Central banks are now talking about starting to withdraw stimulus from the market.  Withdrawing stimulus too fast could negatively impact the market and potentially causes a stock market crash. That’s precisely what happened in 2013 in an event that has become known as the Taper Tantrum.  Another risk is that economic growth doesn’t live up to expectations. Lower growth would justify lower valuations for equities. Further, if another more deadly coronavirus variant emerges, the economic bounce back and may shudder to a halt.  Stock market crash protection These are the factors that could lead to a market crash in the next few weeks and months.  However, here at The Motley Fool, we’re not interested in trying to time short-term market movements. We’re looking to buy high-quality companies to hold for the long run.  This is the approach I plan to continue using, even if there is another stock market crash. I’ll continue to focus on finding high-quality companies and defensive investments, such as drinks giant Diageo. Even if the stock market crashes 50% tomorrow, I don’t think people will stop drinking whiskey, vodka and Guinness. Although if the economic recovery stutters, the firm’s sales may decline.  All in all, I think there’s a chance we may see a stock market crash in the next few weeks. Any of the reasons outlined above could send markets lurching lower. Nonetheless, I’m not going to deviate from my strategy of buying and holding high-quality companies.

  49. Why are BONDS recommended as a SAFE investment, yet they also CRASHED during the 2020 Stock Market Crash? (26/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    The general consensus is that bonds are a safe investment, due to having a low correlation to stocks. However, in the 2020 market crash, bonds went down with stocks! I can vouch for this, since i had approx. 10% of my portfolio in a Global Aggregate Bond ETF which i chose due to it being an extremely diversified fund, that also paid a decent dividend of 2.2%. I figured the bond ETF woud have been ok in the crash, but when it went down with my stocks i was quite surprised. Admittedly, It may not have gone down quite as much as some stocks, but it still went down with them. Hardly a low correlation then... That same bond etf i was invested in is now down 2.5% over the last 12 months. Zero capital gains for anyone invested in it. I guess you could say that it is indeed doing the opposite to what stocks are currently doing, i.e a low correlation then. But, if it also crashes hard like stocks do in a stock market crash, why do people recommend bonds for as hedge against crashes? The only good thing about bonds from what i can see, is that they tend to pay decent dividends. But that's it. Am i missing something? I must be?! Prove me wrong, and enlighten me to the supposed power of bonds.   submitted by   /u/BlueHorizon87 [link]   [comments]
