Business first. Markets are looking a little shaky lately, especially in the last couple days. We seen some selling heading in the close for several sessions now and I’ve been getting emails on what this means going forward. Well we don’t try to predict markets, but as I mentioned a few days ago our strategies are near the edge of a few thresholds so it won’t take much to either make a little profit here or kick them back out into cash and safety positions. Obviously we would prefer the former, but I never front run anything so we’ll just take it day by day. A little Christmas rally would be nice, but honestly it’s been ages since we’ve seen a pullback in the markets so I don’t think it would surprise anyone if this was the start one.
Todays daily blog is a video discussing the important topic of:
Investing in Overvalued Markets
With every month / year we push forward in this now 2nd longest bull market in history, it becomes increasingly more difficult for investors to make rational decisions.
In the early stages of bull markets it’s easy to be aggressive and buy, and at that point most things are going up so it’s a lot of fun.
However towards the late stages, that’s when things get tricky. Some people get overly aggressive because they feel they missed out on the past several years of easy gains. This may be especially true with volatility trading because for many people it is relatively new to them and they don’t have 5+ years of nice gains under their belt. And then other investors may be the opposite, finding it very difficult to stay the course and stay allocated (as you’ll see in the video)
Please enjoy the video below discussing this topic, and feel free to strike up a private conversation with me about how you’re feeling right now. I’m not a psychiatrist and you’re not on my couch, but sometimes talking through things does help so feel free to bounce a few thoughts off me if you like.
