Is Red the Color of May? Relax, Markets Acting
Sitting out during capitulation moments and trying times when
the markets is acting as it is can be a challenge for investors.
Taking a breather of this kind can help you maintain position
flexibility. When markets are acting as they have the last few
days, it might be good just to sit on your hands during
capitulation moments. One needs to resist the temptation to join
the herd and sell into the panic. However, one exception, never
ever let a winner become a loser.
Part of your homework is doing risk analysis. Most investors
don't do risk analysis. It's something every investor should do.
That's why I have always stated in my blogs during the last five
years to hedge your winnings. I do it, as documented in my blogs,
with SPY puts. I call it necessary insurance. I don't buy the SPY
puts with the idea of making money on them, but when the time
comes, as now, they provide the blanket of cushion I need.
It's call insurance.
It's a bull market pause.
Just watch others give up, then as the smart money will do,
jump in for the killing!
