Because of your small entry quantum, you are always liquid.
That’s how you have defined the strategy.
What happens when there’s a market crash?
Your existing folio takes a hit.
You’ve been buying with margin of safety.
Because of your small entry quantum strategy, your hit is not hitting you.
Your focus is elsewhere.
It is on the bargains that the crash has created.
You keep targeting these with your fresh entry quanta.
You keep getting margin of safety.
Suddenly you realise, that you like it.
You like being in bargain area.
You like the sale that’s going on.
It won’t always be so.
There will be times that you won’t be getting any margin of safety whatsoever.
Then, you realize another thing.
You’re not afraid of a crash…
…you are ready, to pick more.
What has empowered you?
Margin of safety.
Small entry quanta.
Controlled level of activity.
Crashes come. Crashes go.
You’ll keep buying stocks with the above criteria as per your outlined strategy, and you’ll keep adding on to your purchases with small entry quanta.
It’s not hurting you, because the money you’re putting in has been defined in such a manner.
Your mind has digested this definition, and your strategy is in place.
The market being down while you buy is a requirement for your strategy to be successful in the long run.
It is a good thing for you. It is not a bad thing.
It takes a while to realize this.
