To sum up investing and wealth building...it all boils down to greed and fear. Those who muster these 2 powerful emotions will eventually rise on top.

Ya no shit the smart money bought in 2009. The hard part is knowing that was a bottom. If you spent all of 2008 buying you got smoked unless you held.

Buying during drastic declines looks great after the fact. But it requires deep reserves & a long view. Your friends will sign u up for therapy & ur wife will leave you. The problem with buy low, sell high is how to define low or high in real time. Without context (which requires more than 3 minutes), most advice is useless. Warren spent many years studying & screwing up. These facts are glossed over. Nevertheless, an interesting presentation.

When the bull run is nearly over (right now) buy stock in gold companies, not overpriced tech stocks. Gold mine stocks are crazy cheap after a long bull market like the one we are having now. They only make money in a crisis, when everything else is dropping. Then sell the gold stocks to buy cheap company shares when the market turns around. Pro investors do this which is why the gold mining stocks have such dramatic positive moves as soon as fear enters the market.

I don't know what the lie is here. Everyone knows to buy low and sell high. The problem is, until you look back, you don't know when it is high and when it is low. You could think the market is hot and sell, only to find it goes up by another 40% that you missed. Likewise, you could think you're at the bottom and buy only to find it falls another 25%. I remember the news during the last crash. There was no lie. All the stories were about trying to decide when we were at the bottom. The prices would go up a bit and they would ask, is this it? Have we hit bottom? Is it time to buy? Nobody and I mean nobody knows. Nobody has that chart shown in this video telling them when the bottom is when the future hasn't happened yet. There is a simple way to get some of this advantage though. Asset allocation with regimented re-balancing. You keep most of your money in something less volatile than stocks. Then keep your portfolio at that ratio. If you have 70% in a money market fund earning 3% and 30% in stocks when the stock market goes up 25%, you now have 28.6% stock and 71.4% in safe money. So, you have to sell stock to re-balance. Likewise, if there is a crash, you have to buy stock to re-balance. This regimentation takes the psychology out of the picture.

I see a lot of condescending remarks about the video, and I understand that for you advanced know it all, this might seem too basic for you but, what some of you arrogant people didnt realize is that he wasnt just stating the obvious, he was bringing attention to the what to look for and when to buy low. But I'm sure all of you knew that and your probably investing millionaires with no need to watch videos like this cause you got the market thing down...... Well for the rest of us Gtfoh and let us have our moment so that we can get like you rich and powerful people.

A match to remember.. Long long ago Mr 'x' announced ipl tournament based on existing accepted genuine rules of cricket 🏏..though just two rules were changed .first change was 'total number of players in both teams can be equal or less than amount of money paid 💰💰for ipl registration'.and according to the second rule, 'it was a test match format with infinite innings'. Teams were formed (how ? Thats another story) and the countdown began with full house 🎊🎊cheering stadium.Both the teams were very rational ..so they mutually selected one umpire 🤵to avoid any kind of injustice.Everything was going fine untill they realized that the umpire suffers from short term memory loss 😧,as a result he takes decision based on performances of few top players insted of checking everybody's contribution to the game .No player could take any objection as they themselves 😤had elected the umpire.Fun fact was all players surprisingly accepted the fact that the umpire was compmetely stoned 🚬🚬 and also suffers from multiple personality disorder🤪 ...morever he can change the rules of game without Mr 'x' s consent !! Everything was going perfect ...It was near the end of first innings when something weird happened. The umpire took few looooong drags of weed and calmly announced - "Guys wait 🤚,at the end ,team with the least score will win the game ! Both the teams decided to replace their best players with worst players to win the game according to new rule . Game continued , crowd was enjoying overcharged refreshments from stadium canteen facility...and there was more to come.. the umpire looked at the worst top order ,unsuccessfully tried his best to remember the last set rule...got frustrated and announced "wait .there s a slight change.. Team with the max score at the end will win😨." This episode got repeated many times and crowd was shocked 😱to see both teams agreeing to the stupid stoner. By the time rule was changed 1468286 th time ..both teams got used to this pattern and started beliving that this is the new rule set and umpire is always right👍🏻.teams even started replacing their players with players from another tournament teams (of course after proper health and stamina checkup). No player even tried to contact Mr 'x' . they thought he was irrelevant in this situation. Now slowly crowd was getting bored 🤦‍♂of this set uncertainity pattern when out of nowhere Sachin Tendulkar came and took batting stance...they checked with the umpire and the rule was looser wins! With no clue about sachins entry, they witnessed runs pouring in ,no matter how the rule changed... Suddenly both teams replaced their worst players with good players and they continued with the best players for next several innings through changing rules,completely ignoring the umpire.."afterall it was sachin tendulkar ..the god 💪of cricket cant be wrong in checking the rule...the umpire must have done some mistake.bloody stoner "said all and continued appriciating sachins innings. Suddenly sachin had a leg cramp and went back to pavellian. Before going back ,he slapped the sleeping umpire hard , umpire came to his senses , dragged the strongest weed gifted to him by sachin when he first stepped in..and said " wait🤚🤚🤚...team with the highest score looses" Even the third umpire couldnt do anything as it was within the virtual frame of agreed rules,Both the teams were crying as both had best players in the squad which was against the new rule , umpire was weed jacked hospitalized and could not recovered for next several months, mr 'x' was enjoying holidays in bahamas with registration money ,he had nothing to do with the match result... crowd had no clue what exactly happened and went home analyzing the episode... The end. *Cast* *Mr. 'x'* =company floating ipo *Players* = investers *Stoned umpire* =nifty /sensex (index) *Third umpire* =sebi *Sachin Tendulkar* =Market manipulator *Health checkup* = fundamental analysis and other platforms *Crowd* = All people watching trade channels and reading news *Refreshments* = tv and news ads *_HAPPY TRADING_*

This really is a waste of time, you missed the key fundamental point. Most people are dead broke and carry massive loads of debt on credit cards and lines of credit. Never mind the car payment and morgage ( if they even have one ). In fact MOST people think they are doing well if they have a little bit in a GIC earn 1/2 of 1%. So do you sit on your cash for a decade until the next crisis ? Stupid. If you looking at quality stocks, then make sure your getting at least a 4% return annually on dividends. Then you take a small percentage of your portfolio and buy the "stupid penny stocks" and look for the big payday but with some thought and foresight into upcoming trends. ie. Microsoft, Apple .... when they were new industries. Today that would be Cannabis. It's a no brainer. This whole speach is way over simplified. Maybe thats why there is a teddy bear there .... it's for 6 year olds to start them thinking. Oh wait ..........

Goofy Duder (1 month ago)
This advice is not basic because it is basic human nature to not buy when there is fear abound and the prices are super low. We all know it's a good move if you believe in the company, but in the moment you are in extreme emotional conflict. At least in my experience. Alessio is the real deal.

The stock market is full of half truths, and half lies, including your own. It makes no sense to wait for a crash when stocks are going to all time highs. What you should be saying is that you need a "stop loss," circuit breaker on you stocks so that they are sold automatically when they are going down. Also you need to know about "short selling" stocks.
Short Selling involves unlimited risk and really isn't something you want to be telling average people be doing. This is mostly related to margin requirements.

The biggest lie in investing is "buy and hold". Look at a chart and do some analysis, don't just buy and sell. Look for an entry and sale point don't just buy at any time. You can make much more money that way.

Relying on only buying during a recession limits your buying opportunity too much. Anyone can provide this "sage" advice. These recessions are too infrequent to use as a basis for investing. Also, you cannot invest during a crises unless you were able to be smart enough to sell during a good time (so you have money to invest). The problem is that a good period may go on for 5 or more years. When during this period should you have sold? What specific criteria triggers a sell for you? Is this done on individual stocks as for Warren Buffet? Think of all the return from dividends you could have had if you waited to the end of this good period vs. selling at the beginning. But when is the end? Things change quickly, sometimes while you are on vacation. There is not just good and bad periods. There are rather short periods of down times followed by very long periods of uncertainty up, down, and sideways. Why is this? This is because almost everyone already knows this principle so investing becomes more difficult. Are there periods of greed with "musical chair" mentality? Yes, but it does not happen that often. You also need an investment strategy that can help you during "average" economic times. The other consideration is if you believe the market is over priced, what will you do with your money? Put it in a mattress? Invest in gold? Both, not good long-term options. Warren Buffet rides out highs and lows, and simply reduces exposure on companies that are over-valued. He IS interested in the profitability and management decisions of the company by the way. He does not make his money by waiting around for a recession sitting on a pile of money.
Quite frankly anyone who talks about investing and only mention stocks is not looking out for you or your best interest(retirement)
