  1. 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?

  2. Anyone preparing for market crash ? (20/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    What’s everyone’s thoughts about the market completely 2008’ing soon? I am in two minds over liquidating my cry-pto and my stocks and leaving just A/M/C & G/M/E. If the squeeze happens that would surely break the market? But either way there does seem to be quite a lot of evidence pointing towards an economic crash. Not looking for opinions on A/M/C & G/M/E. I will 100% not be selling but nor am I an expert in the slightest on seeing evidence of market crashes/ stocks so just wondering what everyone else is thinking   submitted by   /u/snow3dmodels [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]

  5. 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. Sorry for the next crash post.   submitted by   /u/Lousterstar [link]   [comments]

  7. 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]

    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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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]

  14. 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]

  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]

  18. 2021 market crash: 4 things I’m doing now just in case (04/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    It was almost a year ago when we experienced the 2020 stock market crash. The FTSE 100 index fell from around 7,400 points to 5,000, a move of  over 30% in just one month. Quite a few market analysts had been calling for some kind of market correction due to inflated prices. However, few could have predicted Covid-19 and the impact it would have on the stock market. Panic set in, hence the change from just a correction to a crash. Chatter is rising again about the potential for a 2021 stock market crash, so what should I do? A 2021 crash could be coming The main reason I see for a 2021 market crash is due to the disconnect between the market and reality. For example, UK unemployment is at the highest rate in five years. The number of Britons claiming universal credit has doubled since the start of the pandemic. Yet what about the FTSE 100? It’s down less than 200 points versus this time last year.  I could make the argument that most of the FTSE 100 companies are international and so the fate of the UK doesn’t impact them that much. But the FTSE 250 (a more domestic gauge) is actually up almost 9% over a one-year period!  From this, I’m wary that another stock market crash in 2021 could be coming. I could be wrong here, and merely overly pessimistic due to the pandemic hangover. In response to a potential crash I’d make a list of the stocks I own that could be most sensitive to a crash. So I’d be looking at stocks that currently have a high valuation and a high P/E ratio. For example, I’m bullish on the London Stock Exchange Group. Yet, given that the price has doubled in two years and has a P/E ratio of 65, I’d be very careful as this could be hit hard in a market crash. Another way I’m preparing for a market crash in 2021 is looking to increase my holdings in dividend stocks. I recently reviewed some good options here. Dividend stocks allow me to pick up income, regardless of what the share price does. So if a crash does come and I’m stuck holding stocks that are heavily down, I can be content with picking up dividends during this holding period (as long as dividends aren’t cut, of course). Then, if the market comes back higher, I’ll have something to show for it. Not a time to panic The third way I’m preparing for a potential market crash is trimming some profits from stocks I’ve held for years. And finally, I’m looking to hold these realised profits in cash. This gives me some dry powder to look to buy shares I think are at attractive prices and can reward me over the long term. I’m only doing this with a small amount of money though. The risk here is that a crash doesn’t come, and I’m losing out from holding money in cash and not being invested.  Even if a market crash does come at some point in 2021, I’m not going to panic. After the crash we saw last year, the market rebounded fairly quickly. If I’d prematurely sold out of everything, it would have been the worst thing to do. As a long-term investor, even a crash shouldn’t faze me too much. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner. But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared. What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

  19. Should I start preparing for a stock market crash? (06/09/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Should I start preparing for a stock market crash? Some investment analysts and market commentators would have me believe that now’s the right time to do so. After a year of explosive gains, equity markets around the world look richly valued. Rising equity prices seem out of whack compared to the economic situation in many countries. They also seem a bit skewed compared to the fundamental performance of certain companies. Some of the most highly valued equities globally are losing money hand over fist, and many others are struggling to earn a sustainable income.  At the same time, it looks as if central banks may begin to start increasing interest rates next year. Higher interest rates may discourage investors from buying stocks. This could lead to a stock market crash in a worst-case scenario.  And in the background, the pandemic’s still rumbling on. And it doesn’t look as if it’s going to end anytime soon.  Predicting a stock market crash  There are certainly some compelling reasons why we could be about to see a stock market crash. However, trying to predict market movements is almost impossible. Even the most experienced Wall Street or City analyst is unlikely to be able to predict when the next crash will happen.  Moreover, here at The Motley Fool, we’re long-term investors. We’re not trying to predict what will happen in the stock market over the next year or two. Instead, we’re looking for companies likely to generate attractive returns for investors over the next five, 10, or 20 years.  This is the approach I’m currently using. While I’m aware we could be about to see a market crash for the reasons outlined above, I’m not going to take any particular action to prepare for a possible decline.  The best companies  I’ll continue to focus on what I believe are the market’s best equities. I think companies like Diageo and SSE will continue to generate steady returns for investors over the next decade or so. Even if shares in these companies are cut in half tomorrow, I don’t think people will stop consuming alcohol or stop using electricity. These businesses provide products and services that consumers like and need. So sales of these products will continue no matter what happens to each firm’s share price. Therefore, I’d buy both of these equities for my portfolio.  I’d also buy shares that may actually benefit from a stock market crash. A great example is the financial services provider IG Group. This company makes money when people trade stocks, commodities and foreign exchange instruments on its platforms. Trading activity tends to increase in periods of volatility, such as a market crash. Therefore, IG may report an increase in profitability if the market slumps. Unfortunately, this is a bit of a double-edged sword. Trading activity can jump during periods of market volatility, but it can also sink when the environment calms down. As such, this stock might not be suitable for all investors.  The post Should I start preparing for a stock market crash? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  22. 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. So What are you're predictions and what are you aiming to buy on the dip and when?   submitted by   /u/lostduck86 [link]   [comments]

  27. 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]

  28. 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]

    I just opened the front page of this subreddit and the first 10 post or so are all saying that the market won’t crash and that we all should be bullish? All I see is that we’re in a much worse state compared to the marker in februari 2020 while having much more “overpriced” stocks in my opinion. How can you justify being bullish with these stock prices without getting blinded by saying the stocks will be worth it in the future, wouldn’t that mean that they should be (almost) flat for a few years to adjust their market worth?   submitted by   /u/Perziyka-Nakura [link]   [comments]

  30. 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]

  31. 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]

  32. If there is a stock bubble, how does it burst? (14/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hey, I am reading multiple posts calling the top of the bull rally and speaking of an inminent crash. If that is your point of view, how do you see the market from today going into a crash? What is in your opinion the deciding factor that might cause the start of a bear market? In my opinion it has to be something external to the stock market and something that affects the US economy on a long term. I thought Covid might cause this but the policies put in place created an inflow of money into the market, and a curious situation right nowa the only apparent effect covid had right now in the economy is inflation and a negative effect on buying power. What's your point of view on this?   submitted by   /u/krLMM [link]   [comments]

  36. 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]

    When someone asks "Crash?", it means they are on the sidelines. The more people on the sidelines, the more cash that will eventually FOMO.

  38. 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]

  40. What has playing safe led me to (06/08/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    "Great stocks come and go, my cash stays forever." Some of us probably said/done similar things below. Ready for some stories today? Grab some wine over. ---Chilling Friday--- “This stock is way too overpriced” “I think the market is gonna crash soon” “I’m holding my cash for a dip” “There’s an inflation” My story I used to pride myself as a passive investor, always building my portfolio based on fundamentals and not taking a single risk. Here’s what I did during and after crash - Exactly nothing. During the 2020 crash, when all the stocks were at a discounted price. I fear worse dips will come after; When the stock price came back strong in just a few months, I fear a correction is coming; When major indexes reach all-time high, I fear inflation and market crash (I’ve seen “market crash is coming” type of video/article like every week since January). I missed out on many great opportunities out of unnecessary fear. Now, you always hear failure stories from trading without risk management, but you don’t often hear safe players’ bad performances. As a reserved investor, I encourage you guys to party a little more. We have to go out there every once in a while to try some different strategies to learn. It doesn’t matter when the crash will hit IMO, all we need to do is have 20% of cash available to buy the dip and sit on it.???? What do you guys think? I’d love to hear how you deal with stocks at an all time high.   submitted by   /u/PositiveKarmaaa [link]   [comments]

  41. How can I apply Warren Buffett’s advice when preparing for a stock market crash? (14/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    There has been a lot of chatter recently about whether another stock market crash is coming. We’ve recently had the one-year anniversary of the crash of 2020, caused by the impact of the global pandemic. Even though the FTSE 100 index is nowhere near all-time highs, US stock markets are at record levels. So at a global level, there is some concern. On this basis, I’ve been looking through some comments from legendary investor Warren Buffett about what to do in this case.  When a stock market crash means it’s raining gold The most relevant piece of advice I found from Warren Buffett with regards to a stock market crash was from a letter to his shareholders in 2016. He commented that “every decade or so, dark clouds will fill the economic skies, and they will briefly rain gold.” Although a crash might not immediately feel like golden rain due to the economic uncertainty associated with it, it does present opportunities. This is what Buffett is getting at here. A crash offers potentially golden opportunities to buy stocks at discounted prices. This is because investors often panic-sell out of fear during a crash. In this way, the true value of the stock can be misaligned versus the share price during this period. So when looking ahead, I’m keen to keep some funds in cash, in case we see a stock market crash. If we do, I’ll be able to buy fast! One note of caution here is that Buffett remarks that these kind of events only happen “every decade or so”. Since we had a crash last year, there might not be another one for several years. So I’m not going to be putting everything on hold and waiting for a crash that might not come. Rather, I’m going to continue on my current regular investing strategy, but just ensure I leave myself some spare cash on the side. Having the right mindset Another piece of advice that I think is relevant for me is Warren Buffett’s comment that “the sillier the market’s behavior, the greater the opportunity for the businesslike investor.” I’m not saying that a stock market crash is silly market behaviour. As with the crash last year, it was for a good reason. However, the silly behaviour can refer to other investors, and their influence on the market. For example, last year I could have panic-sold my stocks. If this was done by enough people, the price of the stock obviously would have fallen.  When the market rebounded strongly over subsequent months, I would have been kicking myself. So the message I get from this quote is that even if there is another market crash, being patient and businesslike is the best mindset to have. Part of this mindset is being long term in my thinking. Even if a crash happens, I should be able to ride it out over the years to come. So overall, regardless of what gets thrown my way by the market this year, I feel prepared to deal with it!

  42. 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]

  44. 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]

  46. Inverse ETFs (16/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m fairly new to the stock market (around 4 months). Ever since I began investing I hear people saying the “market is gonna crash” or “the bubble is going to burst” which is pretty worrying obviously. Though, yesterday I found an inverse S&P 500 stock called SPXU. This stock basically rises when S&P 500 goes down. I was thinking would this be a smart way to get “insurance” if the market ever crashes again? Appreciate any information or opinions. Thanks!   submitted by   /u/soccer-starrr [link]   [comments]

  48. Applying Occum's razor to the stock market (17/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Looking back at the last year on the stock market, I see a bubble. Many people on this forum confidently proclaim that there wont be another crash anytime soon And that buying this dip is the correct thing to do. That leaves us with 2 possible scenarios. 1st scenario, were in a humongous bubble based on the valuations pre-covid to current valuations and it is currently in the beginning of a major crash. 2000 dotcom crash charts almost perfectly match our current charts. 2nd scenario, pre-covid the entire market was wrong on the valuations for the past several years on stocks. During the pandemic, the public and institutions became lucid to the fact that tech, gambling, weed, ev, ecommerce, btc miners, chinese stocks etc were all wildly undervalued and so the market rightly corrected for this 200% - 1000% deficiency in market cap over the past year. Sub 10 P/E ratios were also wrong and P/E of 30 - 170 is appropriate for the first time in history. Occums razor, the simplest explanation is usually the right answer. Am i to believe that the market was wildly wrong in undervalueing stocks like zm, shop, aapl, tsla etc over the last several years?

  50. How I’m preparing for a stock market crash (19/09/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Two weeks ago, I reviewed the risks and challenges facing equity markets, which could lead to a stock market crash in the near term.  While I concluded that these headwinds could lead to a slump, I also explained that I wouldn’t take any particular action to prepare for this eventuality.  Instead, I said I’d continue to focus on what I believe are the “market’s best equities.”  These included companies such as Diageo and SSE. No matter what happens in the stock market over the next few weeks and months, I think it’s highly likely consumers will still be drinking whiskey and using electricity. As such, these companies may not see a significant decline in sales and profitability, even if there is a sudden market crash.  Buying high-quality companies is just one part of my investment strategy. I’ve also been diversifying my portfolio, which I think could help me in a stock market crash.  Stock market crash protection Generally, stocks and shares make up the majority of my investment portfolio. This means my portfolio can be pretty volatile, and it may not be an approach that’s suitable for all investors.  Indeed, some may be more comfortable owning a large percentage of their assets in cash. Other investors may prefer gold or Premium Bonds. There’s no one set formula or investment allocation that works for everyone.  As I noted above, equity holdings make up the bulk of my investment portfolio. However, recently I’ve been diversifying into different assets. These include gold and inflation-linked bonds. Rising food and energy prices around the world are starting to concern me. Inflation-linked bonds and gold have historically been some of the best-performing assets in an inflationary environment. While past performance should never be used as a guide to future potential, I’m happy to own these investments in my portfolio to provide some diversification and protection against a stock market crash.  Diversification As well as buying these assets individually, I’ve also acquired a holding in the Personal Assets Trust. This investment trust’s overriding aim is to protect and grow investors’ capital.  It has an unconstrained investment mandate, which means it can invest in any assets it believes will help accomplish its goals.  According to its latest investor update, around 8.5% of the trust’s invested in gold. Inflation-linked securities make up a further 32%.  The rest of the portfolio is devoted to high-quality stocks, which includes Diageo, among others. UK equities make up 8% of the portfolio, while international stocks make up 35%.  I think the trust’s diversified portfolio will help provide some protection to my portfolio against a stock market crash. The one downside of investing in Personal Assets is that investors don’t get to pick and choose which assets it holds. This could be a drawback for some.  Still, I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today, alongside the companies outlined at the beginning of this article.  The post How I’m preparing for a stock market crash appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.
