The stock market always goes up, they say. It’s been white hot since 2009. Is 2022 the year the naysayers were talking about? Do we see a significant dip in the market for the year?

I am down 17% on FBGRX. And, I don’t even buy individual stocks anymore!

It doesn’t go up every year. It goes up over time. If you have a way to predict when it goes up or down in the short term, you are a genius. Spoiler alert, you are not a genius

I lost more than half of my $10K investment in the 2008 crash when I was still a broke college student… I kept investing $50/mo (much more after college) and hit my first million at 30. Consistent, long term investment strategies always win. I welcome the market downturn and will buy as much as I can… don’t sell on the dips.

Thing is no one can time bottom

You should do value investing and be patient for long term. I myself am down by 20% of my portfolio. But stocks i own from last 5 years are up more than 100% and stocks which i bought last year are mostly hammered.

Whoever is thinking that they can time market they are wrong. Pandemic has brought lot of traders who have never seen negative on their portfolio. Its all them reacting to overall situation.

I get that growth wont be in double digits but its not zero. Take googles example, they missed expectations by some margin but that does not mean company is not worth it. No one can outperform for a entire lifetime

Well, I am not selling my index funds. But this hurts. This is pool 🏊‍♂️ money.

My 2 cents would be to get broad funds. My favorite index fund is FXAIX s&p500 index fund, also because of its expense ratio. Or Fidelity zero index funds

Yes I have FZROX and FNILX.

some good buying opportunities out there

We have done the math and I know we can afford much more but he doesn’t want to buy more than a 400K home. I’m almost positive we can afford 500K and be more than ok. But then he starts to talk about how much kids cost and how we will be house poor and we won’t be able to afford kids. 🤔 Am I insane??
