A True Funny Self Talk about Bull/Up Markets and Bear/Down Markets!

Happy Monday !

Hat tip Barry Ritholtz and Ben Carlson:

 

  • Bull Markets: Fear of missing out.
  • Bear Markets: Fear of being in.

 

  • Bull Markets: Everything I buy is going up — I’m a genius.
  • Bear Markets: Everything I buy is going down — I’m an idiot.

 

  • Bull Markets: I knew I should have had more of my portfolio in stocks.
  • Bear Markets: I knew I should have had more of my portfolio in bonds.

 

  • Bull Markets: That guy’s been calling for a crash for years — he’s an idiot.
  • Bear Markets: That guy just called the crash — he’s a genius.

 

  • Bull Markets: I want to be a long-term buy and hold investor.
  • Bear Markets: I want to be a short-term trader.

 

  • Bull Markets: I’ll sit tight when the market falls.
  • Bear Markets: Dear Lord, get me out of stocks NOW!

 

  • Bull Markets: Time to buy stocks?
  • Bear Markets: Time to sell stocks?

 

  • Bull Markets: Warren Buffett is washed up.
  • Bear Markets: Wait, Buffett is buying here?

 

  • Bull Markets: Buy & hold works.
  • Bear Markets: Buy & hold is dead.

 

  • Bull Markets: I’ll be greedy when other are fearful.
  • Bear Markets: I lied — I’m fearful when other are fearful.

 

  • Bull Markets: Why didn’t I invest earlier in my life?
  • Bear Markets: I’ll never invest again.

 

  • Bull Markets: Why would I want to diversify?
  • Bear Markets: Why was I so concentrated?

 

  • Bull Markets: I’m just waiting for a healthy correction to put more money to work.
  • Bear Markets: This market action is not healthy at all.

 

  • Bull Markets: It feels like markets will never fall again.
  • Bear Markets: It feels like markets will never rise again.
