Wait for a big crash to pick our durians?

Saturday, August 26, 2017

You have been through the times when you got stocks w div yield of 10+ or even 20%..

Why are you still keen to pick up stocks at 3-5% now?

Isn't it easier (and less work) to just wait out for the next crash to pick your durians again?

It shouldn't be too long from now right...?

Now, this was a CRASH!
Did anyone predict this?
This is what insurance is for.
It is for if a CRASH happens.

Our war chest is an insurance!


I cannot predict what will happen. 😞

Some people have been waiting for years for a big crash.

I will keep investing but keep a war chest ready. 

There will always be opportunities, bear market or not.

Just have to be careful so that I don't get killed by falling durians. 😛

These few days I have been scanning through this blog digging out the hidden gold beneath tons of pages and comments.

Would it be ridiculous to think that I would need to spare about 10 years before I see the next mega bloodshed in the market?

I mean before the GFC, were you simply hoarding cash (beside doing trading once a while) in anticipation for the next crash? (GFC in 2008/9; Asian Financial Crisis in 1997)

I cannot predict.

I can only prepare.

I am always invested but I also have a war chest ready. ;)
