    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]

  3. 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]

  4. If Citadel can make fake shares of GME to short 140%, couldn’t they make more fake shares to cover their original (fake) shorted shares? (23/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Can someone possibly explain to me why I’m wrong. I hope I’m wrong. But the more I think about this the more it looks like a select few people at the top are able to literally create shares, thus controlling the direction of any and all stocks on the market. This basically means the entire stock market, AKA the “free” market is entirely rigged. They might’ve created a huge bull trap for GME if what I’m saying is true and will eventually let it drop to shit with more fake shares pulling the price down. We literally watched them stop the sale of shares earlier this year when GME first went viral. This could of been a moment where they needed to figure out what to do. Once they got everyone at their firms onboard they re-enabled buying shares for meme stocks. Why should anyone be investing in the stock market right now? Will the market crash from this? My original fear from the GME fiasco was a market crash. Then it slowly kept going back up after the initial turbulence. What if these people are making fake shares for the biggest companies out there like Apple and Google in order to create a fake stock market reality. And theoretically they could keep it going or short the market to shit and reap their reward.   submitted by   /u/dirtiestofbuttholes [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]

    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. Just a thought experiment for fun. Calm.   submitted by   /u/EthRec [link]   [comments]

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.

  14. What do you do when you expect a crash or correction? (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    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]

  16. Should I sell VOO if I think a crash is coming? (08/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Let me preface this by saying I am an idiot new investor who has little to no idea how any of this works. I bought some VOO shares (12) at around 350 a share a bit ago - I now am worried about an impending market crash of some significance based off of no real research, just a general feeling of unease. Is there any sense in selling VOO shares now to get my money back, and then holding on to that money in an attempt to re-buy when the prices drop down if a crash occurs? How flawed is this reasoning? I'm assuming there is something here i'm missing, so just figured i'd ask. Thanks in advance   submitted by   /u/Jimmy_Lightning [link]   [comments]

  17. 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]

  19. 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]

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

  25. 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.

  28. GE Stock Split Help (02/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So, first I'm using Robinhood for this, so I want to know if this is a Robinhood bug or how it works on that platform. (Using Robinhood because it was easy to dip my toe into the stock market. I have grand total of $600 in the stock market through Robinhood.) So I had 5 shares of GE before they split their stock. I understood that after the split, I'd have less shares than I currently do. That makes sense to me. I'm pretty sure that since the split causes the stock price to go up, I didn't have enough shares after the split to own a full share. I had thought that I would have had 0.xx shares? The way it states right now, all the money from those shares are no longer in my account and I have no shares at all of GE. Did I think this wrong or is Robinhood either taking a while to process this or have an issue in their system?   submitted by   /u/wabbits_foot [link]   [comments]

  30. 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]

  31. A question about the mechanics of a short squeeze (04/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hi all I am trying to understand how does a short squeeze work, in particular when a person shorts a stock but can't cover it when the stock prices goes up against his prediction. I still have a gap in my understanding and I thought you maybe able to help fill it. I try to explain here: Let's suppose we have: 1. `Person 1` 2. `Person 2` 3. `Person 3` 5. `Marker Maker` And 10 shares of a given stock. Initially we have: | Who? | Shares | |----------|--------| | `Person 1` | 0 | | `Person 2` | 0 | | `Person 3` | 0 | | `Market Maker` | 10 | Then let's say `Person 1`, and `Person 2` buy 1 share each: | Who? | Shares | |----------|--------| | `Person 1` | 1 | | `Person 2` | 1 | | `Person 3` | 0 | | `Market Maker` | 8 | Then `Person 3` borrows 8 shares from the MM with the intention of shorting it: | Who? | Shares | |----------|--------| | `Person 1` | 1 | | `Person 2` | 1 | | `Person 3` | 8 | | `Market Maker | 0 | `Person 3` then sells those shares to `Person 1` and `Person 2` at the market price (4 shares to each): | Who? | Shares | |----------|--------| | `Person 1` | 5 | | `Person 2` | 5 | | `Person 3` | 0 | | `Market Maker` | 0 | Let's pretend that after sometime `Person 3` realizes that the share price will not go down and he gives up and decides to buy back the shares and return it to the Market Maker. Irrespective of initial prices, borrow fees, etc. Let's say `Person 1` and `Person 2` only sell their shares for a certain price: | Who? | Price | |----------|--------| | Person 1 | $420 | | Person 2 | $69 | Let's say `Person 3` only has $5 in his bank account. Does that mean, that the Market Maker liquidates `Person 3`, takes his $5, and then is obligated to buy the shares at the prices set by `Person 1`, `Person 2`, with two $420 shares of `Person 1` remaining in his possession?   submitted by   /u/OxCoff33Bab3 [link]   [comments]

  32. Stock market crash 2021: here’s what I’d do if it happens (01/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    As stock market investors we need to be prepared for all possibilities. This includes being prepared for a stock market crash, as we have learned from last year’s experience. Typically, it is unlikely that a big stock market crash in one year is followed by another the next year, but it does no harm to be ready.  Where did the stock market rally go? If we look at the stock market indexes in February, it is evident that the stock market rally has vanished. In fact, there was a fall in the FTSE 100 index average compared to January.  This may not be sustained or result in a market crash. Vaccinations, stimulus, low interest rates, and a growth bounce back are big reasons for the financial markets to stay buoyant.  Unless there is a fresh surge in coronavirus cases or the economy is in a far worse state than any of us imagine at this point, I think UK shares are set to do well in 2021.  What if there is another stock market crash? But if the risks play out, here are the three things I would do.  #1. Buy fear: I’d keep funds aside for investing when share prices are low. Many FTSE 100 shares have more than doubled from the lows they hit when the stock market crashed. In fact, many of them gained soon after. And this includes even those that were the worst hit like travel and tourism stocks.  If I think there is real long-term value to these stocks, I would not hesitate before buying these shares. I reckon that they could double my money in just a few months, but even if they do not, it is a great way to buy high-quality stocks at low prices.  #2. Hold on: I would hold on to my portfolio stocks. Even if at the moment there was little money to be made, I would not like to lose any. All gains and losses are notional until we sell the shares we hold. And a market crash is never the time to sell otherwise higher value stocks.  #3. Load up: This is true for income stocks as well. A low or no-growth income stock can be a real drag on the investment portfolio. Many companies stopped paying dividends last year and, as a result, their share prices fell even further.  But if I had loaded up on those stocks then, today my dividend yield on them would be even better after they reinstated passive income.  The take away In sum, the three things I would do are – buy, hold, and load up on existing holdings.

  33. 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]

  34. How can everybody be so confident that the market won’t crash? (27/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    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]

  35. 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]

  36. 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]

  37. 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]

  41. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. 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]

  45. Should I wait until the next stock market crash to buy cheap UK shares? (17/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The stock market’s recent rally means it may be more difficult to buy cheap UK shares today than it was a few months ago. After all, indexes such as the FTSE 350 have moved higher as investor sentiment has strengthened. As such, it could be argued that waiting for the next stock market crash before buying UK stocks is a sound move. Since no bull market has lasted in perpetuity, this could offer some appeal. However, with many FTSE 350 stocks still trading on low earnings multiples, there may be opportunities to unearth good value companies on a case-by-case basis. Buying cheap UK shares in a stock market crash The past performance of the stock market shows it’s been possible to buy cheap UK shares during a crash. March 2020 is a prime example of this, when even high-quality companies traded at low prices for a limited time. Other examples include the global financial crisis and dot com bubble, when investor fear caused many companies to have low prices for a short amount of time. Such events have always occurred after a bull market. In fact, no rise in the stock market’s price level has ever been permanent. This could mean a strategy of waiting for a lower stock market price level is a sound means of capitalising on the market cycle. Buying low and selling at higher prices could realistically be a means of earning a higher return than the wider stock market over the long run. Predicting a stock market crash However, the problem with this plan is predicting when a stock market crash will produce a wide range of cheap UK shares. That’s a very tough task. Last year’s market decline highlighted the difficulties in trying to second-guess market movements. Ultimately, the future is always a known unknown. Furthermore, many UK stocks continue to trade at cheap prices. Although the stock market has rallied since its March 2020 lows, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 continue to trade at lower prices than they did a year ago. This could indicate there are good-value shares on offer that can be purchased now and held for the long term. In time, they could produce impressive returns in a likely stock market recovery and a period of improved economic growth. An uncertain future is always ahead Therefore, waiting for a stock market crash before buying cheap UK shares could be a difficult strategy to execute. Impatience from low returns of cash and the challenges in predicting the stock market’s movements may mean that identifying undervalued shares at the present time on a case-by-case basis is a more prudent approach. It could allow an investor to obtain favourable risk/reward opportunities on a long-term investment outlook.

  46. 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]

  48. 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]

  49. I am bullish about the future (27/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    People seem to think because we had 2 big crash close together in 2000 and 2008, we are bound to have one soon. I want to remind people before the year 2000, we had a 20 years bullish run. Its totally not impossible we get to 2030 with no crash, especially now that the feds baby sit the market. Secondly, we have extremely nice upcoming market conditions. Stimulus checks will either get people to spend money to stimulate the economy, or get them to invest, both will help the stock market. The media is somehow trying to make us believe this is bad, but i think its just bullshit. Inflation has been ultra low for way too long, and feds actually want it to increase. They said many times they won't increase rates before 2023. Thirdly, i also think we have more upcomming money sources coming into the market than ever. People from other countries invest in US stock market. With all the GME hype, more people than ever are joining in. Again media trying to twist this to say its "bad", but obviously it isn't bad. Another point is, crashes usually happen for a reason, its not random. You can google any of past market crash and find the exact reason it happened. None of these factors are happening right now. Another point is, there is a key difference between today and 2000. In 2000, the overvalued .com companies which had PE ratios of 200.... were literally worth nothing! These companies had never made a single profit! Once people realized they invested massively in a .com web site worth jackshit... they sold it obviously. They had no reason to hold their shares. Now check this image about Nasdaq's PE Ratios: https://i2.cdn.turner.com/money/dam/assets/150305131443-nasdaq-pe-780x439.jpg Obviously, you can see the 2000's pe ratios were stupid. This graph is from 2015 when it was at 31.7. What is it today? Nasdaq PE ratio as of February 25, 2021 is 22.74!!!! LOWER THAN 2015. 10x lower than the 2000s. https://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/charts/NDAQ/nasdaq/pe-ratio Its irrelevant if the big hedge funds remove their money from apple and want to scare you into selling your shares. Apple is a massive amazing company that is really worth a lot, and they do make tons of profits. Its not comparable in any ways to the dot com bubble. If other people are stupid and sell their shares, SO WHAT? You will just be able to buy into this amazing company for cheaper. So hold your shares and stop worrying about a 2000 level crash, its not happening. A correction? Maybe. But who cares, this just slows us down a little. Corrections are healthy and help us avoid a real crash.   submitted by   /u/Floofyboy [link]   [comments]

  50. 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]
