First market correction?

How is it even possible that the market going down after going up the prior year is a surprise to you?

Now you know it is possible. And, it is stil not too bad. Imagine when people see their portfolio cut in 40 or 50%

Why are you investing without knowing the first rule of thumb, always zoom out, and stop looking at your portfolio so often. If you are investing for the long run then invest it and forget it. You are analyzing your investment off the basis of an anomaly year. 20-30 years from now, if you are patient, your returns should normalize to 8-12%. Your 1 year annual gain of 23% is not normal nor is it sustainable

It's a sale 🤷🏻‍♂️. In 5-10 years you'll have way more anyways. Hold it.

So are you guys still holding or selling to cut the lose ?

Unless you need the money, never sell in a correction. If anything, buy more.

BIA Briefs: I’m an associate at an immigration law firm. I determined that immigration isn’t for me So I gave the managing partner my 2 weeks. He wants me to wrap up some BIA briefs before I leave however I’m reviewing the record for a lot these and I’m seeing that a lot of the arguments for Asylum, Withhold, and CAT are incomplete. How I’m going to argue that the IC abused its discretion or misapplied the law when we made a facially insufficient argument for relief?

Hey all - I currently work as PM at a NY agency. However, I went to school in Boston and my partner is from the North Shore. We’re thinking about making the move back to Boston early next year. Does anyone have an insight into the ad industry in Boston? What’s it like? Are agencies hiring? How’s the culture? If anyone has worked in NY as well I’d love to hear about how the two cities are different from an ad industry perspective.
