    AAPL and TSLA hit all time highs today. Just a short time ago TSLA dropped 300+ points amid a lot of panic. Those who sold missed out. It's gained back all it lost and then some. Just goes to show that panic can cost you a lot.
    Like I said in a post a short time ago: "I always stay put in corrections/dips like this. The market always comes back. I did add to my AAPL position at around $284 today. In a few months all of this fear will just be a memory".

    Trump and the fed are doing everything they can with corporate america bailouts and propping up the stock market bubble.
    I dont see markets tanking with what's going on. Even when a million more americans are starving we will have a record stock market and the best economy ever in history.
    The fakeness and lies wont stop until the very end, then there will be new lies.

    I'm leaving my stock market money in because its obvious where its going. It's all they care about right now.

    It's been sometime since I dropped in. When I added to my AAPL position @ $284 there were a lot of snickering. But look at AAPL now. $413 or so and going to split again 4 to 1. This will be my 3rd split with AAPL. My initial 1k shares will now be 56k shares. Not too shabby. And look at TSLA. It drop to the mid 600s and is now 1436. Quite a gain.

    We've seen this happened in 2000. I went through it and though I didn't lose much as I didn't partake in the bubble but it taught me a lesson, which is, it not the gains that matters, but the losses. Gains are just numeric figures, but the losses are real.

    If you learn from history it's to not try time the market, it can stay up for years longer than makes sense and then when it crashes it's only to the halfway point between the high and when it stopped making sense. Diversification is good and maintaining a % balance so you continue to buy when unpopular and not overspending in a bubble. Like crypto, I buy when it's unpopular and flat and people think it's terrible, then it triples and THEN they get interested, "mate how much do you think it'll go up" - fucked if I know but not as much as when it was flat and unpopular!
