Don't kick a man (investor) when he is down (investments underperforming) or he might get up (turn a profit).  The arrogance of the temporarily successful, who end up as a corpse same as a street urchin in Mumbai … always amuses.  Usually particularly if they are kings and queens.
Not everyone is good at investments.  And I'm sure not about individual ones.  Which is why I avoid them.  Index funds, representing most of the stocks have been very good to me since 2011, when I was sure the market was recovering.  And I'm not trying to "time the market".  That is a fool's game.

But I was convinced the Trump about to ruin both the domestic and international markets completely aside from actual market forces and got out.  I may have been a year early, but it seems to happening now.  I expect the S&P to fall for months or a year as Trump thrashes around ruining the US reputation and economy.  I hate that,  but I will react rationally.

With the trade war on, and expanding to additional countries, anything can happen at this point.  DiversiFy!

No, you idiot, DON'T diversify.  Contract into safe investments like Money Markets.  And never touch gold.  Be cash-ready to re-enter the stocks when Trump pushes the economy to the bottom.  Catch it on the upside when he is gone.

Sorry, not good advice.  But I hope it works out for you anyway.  Chasing yield, in the long run, and you get all your money in the failed Uber IPO.

its easy to blame the problems we're facing in the world on one individual instead of looking at humanity as a whole for the problems its created.

Its honestly embarrassing on different levels. 

Though what the guy says at the end is very true. This here on display is an example of a new form of religion, secular, one where in moving away from ones like Christianity, people are hard wired into needing a form of group think like Christianity before it. Their chanting the same as Christians would be praying, they get angry when their ideals are challenged by those outside the group, they carry banners the same way Christians carry crosses, and free thought is just dismissed from said groups.

i'm an atheist, not just because I don't believe in what ancient cults made people follow for thousands of years, but also against modern day cults, like socialism or Marxism. And I'm going to carry on upholding the most important thing to me based on what atheism should be, free thought and having the right to express it.

Many people don't find Trump's antics to be entertaining at all.


But I bet Putin never stops laughing.
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

If Putin is a god, then I will worship him too ;-)  Russians put on pants two legs at a time.

That is exactly what I do NOT do.

But also, I very much apologize for saying "idiot".  You aren't but I was up too late and angry at the time for other reasons.  I have my weaknesses...  I was wrong to say that.

Holding firm.  I'm confident Trump will ruin the economy yet...  He has 16 months to go.  And if he doesn't, I've been getting 3%...

So you feel compelled to post them all and spread the nonsense around?  I wish you wouldn't.
