You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Thinking you can call a top or bottom of a market disqualifies you from the title of guru.

Maybe that is why no guru's answered?  :)

As hard as it is to resist things on your own, it's so much harder when you feel a duty to explain and warn others, especially if they are young enough to have no real memory (as in a personal portfolio that suffered losses) to remember.

Intellectually they will say, OK, so it crashed, took a while to come back, then 2008 came, and look what happened since. Everything will come back and be higher. They find it hard to Internalize that starting point makes a huge difference, that certain times when liquidating assets are beyond your control, etc. etc.

One of my favorite articles on the topic is Richard Russell's a"h Rich Man Poor Man (search Google, it's been published in several places, though only a few of them have the full version.
Excellent article by Richard Russell, thanks for posting it .

It is one of 12 excellent pieces which John Mauldin put together in his book (actually a compilation) Just One Thing. Recommended read.

Yes I am still short, the USD got stronger against all currencies in the last 3 days due to talk about higher interest rates, that is what also tanked the market, I still can't tell if the USD reversed or is just retracing part of the down move, soon it'll be clearer, I placed a stop at 8.155, still profitable for me if it gets hit.  Make sure you place a stop and stick to it, do not let a profitable trade turn to a loss no matter what.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

I would not have bought.

But I will tell what I am holding... VIX- because you should have known massive corrections would be coming.

And how exactly are you holding VIX?

VIX isn't really an asset, it is a derivative. And Exchange Traded products are derivatives of that derivative.

Caveat emptor.
