    Already languishing in a bear market, its 11 percent slump in October puts the Hang Seng Index on course for a six-month losing streak, the worst since 1982.

    On Monday I put all the savings from my first few months of working into iShare ETF. In four days I lost over US$1,500. I know I shouldn't care about short-term ups and downs, but man this is brutal.

    I know this is not helpful now but that’s the reason people tell you to diversify.

    Hmm... I invested in a total market ETF so diversify shouldn't be a big problem. I don't have any bond holding though. Not sure if it is necessary as I'm in my mid 20s.

    Can't time the market.

    Buy and hold, stay the course.
