The funny thing about the stock market is, I can find articles and theories to support a fleeting feeling I have at any given time.
This can help confirm thoughts I already had, or conversely lead to severe doubt and complete paralysis.
Aside from articles, there are investors just like me commenting all sorts of directions on platforms like StockTwits. Anymore, I try not to believe anything I see written in these forums as it really feels like people are just shouting out in attempts to manipulate other investors into a desired direction.
The best takeaway from all of this has been to try not to jump to conclusions or get emotional in my decisions and stick to a plan based upon what the numbers are showing. I have particular prices in mind when I want to make purchases, so now my goal is to filter out the noise and stick to the plan.
Sure, a bear market could hit us next week and crash all of what we’ve been building, but that’s not much of a reason to stay out of the game entirely is it? Is it?
