Someone you may have heard of once said “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful”.
It is in unexpected times like this where the share market suddenly puts a lot of great businesses at discount prices, even though they’re the same businesses as they were the day before.
If we had tons of cash sitting there to invest, we’d be licking our lips. We could use this volatility to grab some bargains. Sadly, we don’t have anything laying around, oh well.
In time, today will be just another day in the stock market. This will pass. In the long run, the stock market will (hopefully!) keep growing. But in the short term we could be in for a rollercoaster, it will be interesting to say the least.
What are your investing thoughts about the volatility after the US elections?
