Are you a day trader or a holder?

Time heals all wounds.


The 9/11 crash from 2600 to 1300 began in June of 2000 and reversed in March of 2003 - a 3 year slide of a crash.

The 2008 crash 2100 to 1000 began in June of 2007 and reversed in February of 2009 - an 18 month slide of a crash.

The 2008 crash recovered by Aug 2013 - 6 years

The 9/11 crash recovered by Oct 2016 - 15 years

And do elections affect the markets? Or do the markets affect elections?

100 USD Oil - January 2 2008.

I'm primarily a holder. Most of my holdings are in funds but I do also have a portfolio of my own stocks that I own for fun. I use a Value Investing Strategy for that part of my portfolio.

Buying and holding is a nice strategy, provided you can weather the storm, maintain steady employment, etc.

Ideally, you buy low and sell high but it's impossible to predict exactly when that point is.

Unforeseen Extraordinary Events can have devastating consequences on individuals though.

The Opposition is trying to say that the Conservatives should call an election because the leadership has changed twice. I think we need a Monthly Python skit to remind them that you don't vote for a Prime Minister.
