We can't go wrong avoiding storm clouds as they appear on the horizon. Now is the time to remain vigilant, before the markets take any big hits. If nothing else, now would be a good time to establish the maximum amount we are comfortable losing, and hold ourselves to it, should that time come. If we do get another drop, and this time is anything like the previous ones, nobody is going to blow the whistle to clear the pool. Only after the real damage is done will we hear, "If you are still in the market, then it is too late to sell now!"
I know a lot of people are inclined to just try to ride it out. That is exactly what the people they are paying want them to do. Surprised? Do you remember the excuse from the last time? "Oh, but nobody could have seen that was coming!" As it turns out, there was a minority who did see it coming. The problem was nobody (especially the media) would listen to them. Myself, I would rather be sitting on a pile of cash after the worst is over than having to wait, hoping to eventually get back to even!
Do you think we are hearing Dent the researcher, or Dent the salesperson?
