The only positive thing I’m getting from this hell market is a lot of lessons learned (very very painful lessons, entered the market for the first time around late dec/early jan in segments).

Markets are cyclical. Leave it parked and forget about it. It will all come back and then some over time

I’m just more panicked cause I (stupidly) put my money set aside for a house DP into the market thinking I would earn better than a HSYA. Obviously my timeline horizon was less than optimal for the risk incurred but based on the projected earnings season coming and the history of the market, I thought I had at least a year to reap it. And was still doing better than the HYSA up til the bottom fell obviously. But I’m young and some people are putting up loss numbers than more than triple my overall investment so. So my main lesson learned is be mindful of the time horizon with regard to acceptable risk.

That’s a good lesson learned. If you had bought and not had a short term goal, it would’ve been the right strategy to go into the market even if the results weren’t good because you couldn’t have known. But be cause you had a short term goal, it was not the right strategy.

Should have just placed it in a HYSA 😩

You’re entitled to a premium on your capital because of the risk. That’s the lesson

Cyclical, yes. Risk, yes. Knew these going in. Was also aware of the risk/chatter of a correction to come soon, but this much drop?? Holy hell. Granted, I was not around the market during 2008/18 so this is my first “big one” I guess.

I am on the same boat but not worried. Just would wait it out

Monday Morning rumination: unsolicited advise is criticism.

Much to reflect on with this topic. Last week I was told in a 1:1 with a new contact that I was “too direct”. After some time chewing on the conversation I was struggling to place the emotions I was feeling. Turns out I was feeling guilty and shame for being me, for taking up space. Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??

Dear all,
I am sharing an experience with you. Please suggest where I can put forward this/ complaint for EY Gds. I was mailing HR since 2 weeks, but no response. Thanks to onBoarding team, someone from HR team, responded but she had lack of manners. She didn't talked to me good and I felt as if I am being accused of cheating the firm. Now, I am hopeless about joining this firm (although I wanted to). Can anyone tell, where can I raise such concerns.

Thanks
