Completely agreed. I think also the rapid gains from 2020 brought an unrealistic expectation that the market always behaves like this. Investing is a long term process and always be aware of the risk you're taking! I personally only invest money I am okay with losing.

What’s fascinating is the market tracking upward despite portfolios of a lot people pulling back. Says just another round of rebalancing.

Thanks for sharing VP. Only thing I'll add is generally I have found is that when stocks seem to keep heading lower and you want to cut your losses because you feel sick to your stomache, thats when they start to reverse and go higher. But, I'll disclaim that with solid companies with strong financials (not meme stocks)

Here’s the performance stats: VIX spread was 175% return SPX 4300 was 395% SPX 4250 was 402% Was an test run of the strategy so stayed small. But this worked very well.

Dont get fixated on a particular month. Summer slowdown starts when they declines sharply in one of the summer month and its thr hint that you should take a vacation till sep.

I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare.
