They never pull the trigger or seldom do! So those keeping money in cash before 2008, didn’t buy the Dow at 10k or even 7k, as they were convinced markets would go down more! Those that saw markets go to 22k, 20k and even 18k in March, didn’t pull the trigger, for the most part. They haven’t read much on investing. If somebody had, they would know there was little or no correlation between geopolitical risks, recessions and 1001 other variables, and markets. Markets can go up or down in recessions, shutdowns, wars and so on. They went up in 1918–1920 during WW1 and the Spanish Flu.
A couple of months ago. She has mental issues and if she says something and I’ll grab it and won’t let go until she justifies it. She hasn’t come round since last time, when she said she was being punished by someone she’d never seen in ways she couldn’t describe. She walked out. We saw a middle-aged, morbidly obese woman on Saturday in the ER. Her naeighbor had driven her there. She told us that her friend had come to her in hysterics, saying that she had taken an overdose and now didn’t want to die.
The kindly neighbor gave her salt water to drink in the hope of inducing an emesis sufficient to get rid of the tablets, but to no effect. Now the physician in the ER that day was a gem of a man. I loved to work with him as he always had time for the patients and treated them like people, however busy we were. He sat down with this anxious woman, who was, incidentally, still fully conscious. “What have you taken, dear”, he asked. “Two Tylenol and two Advil” came the answer!
No I don’t think you owe your child an explanation unless It pertains to them or you wouldn’t feel at the age they’re right now that they would understand. However children are smart so even at a young age they’re like now wait a minute Mom…Dad…something about this is off and serious. If you feel comfortable telling them, that’s up to you. Nothing wrong with saying they could’ve potentially had a brother or sister but something happened and unfortunately it didn’t happen.
Yes, but only on the market of stupidity. Otherwise, No, nein, Het, non. Once again, Megs couldn’t be bothered to think things completely through. She went off half full and promptly ran out of petrol. By bringing Harry to Los Angeles, she forgot one major detail. His lack of a work visa. They can’t be marketable, if he can’t be hireable. In Canada, it would not have been a problem. They are part of the Commonwealth, so Harry could have gotten a job there.
They are clueless about an obvious fact. Net buyers of units (those in their 20s, 30s, 40s and sometimes 50s) should celebrate any falls. Those in retirement or close to retirement (net sellers) shouldn’t welcome falls but they should be rebalanced into bonds and stocks in any case. So rationally speaking, if we see a crash in July or August, net buyers should be delighted. I wouldn’t listen to anybody who claims to know markets will go up or down in the short-term.
