I’ve been guilty of giving in…
…to the urge to sell.
However, having kept basic tenets alive, vital underlyings are still a hold…
…for as long as they remain vital.
Have been getting rid of stuff I don’t want.
Restructuring / reorganizing.
These are the activities of choice, when markets are on a roll.
Sure, one’s been buying too, but not in the investing account.
Trading accounts are very active.
These are trading prices.
What’s the definition of a (successful) trade?
Buy high, and sell higher. Or, sell low, and buy back lower.
As opposed to an investment, where one buys low, to sell higher, later.
Are these low prices?
How long has the index remained, percentage-wise, in its History, at 30+ PEs?
Very low single (%age) digits, of the time under consideration.
Thus, times will change.
Nobody knows when.
However, who cares?
Let it roll.
We’ll just go on consolidating, till we can’t consolidate anymore.
That’s the sweet spot we want to be in, before conditions change, where one can’t consolidate anymore.
And, we’ll just sheer go on trading.
That’s what we do with trading prices.
