No way on this. Honestly. But its good to have some cash handy to trade in a up/down cycle.Are you liquidating equities and going to cash?
Done some of that over the last few weeks after taking some profit from Dec purchases.
UPRO / TQQQ if you are positive about the near mid term and SPXU / SQQQ if you're negative about near / mid term - but these are heavy duty mind & wallet fucking ETFs. (There are milder versions of these ETFs which do not come with Xanax prescriptions...)
Nothing. I've been around long enough to know that people lose more money and opportunities anticipating the next crash/crisis/whatever than they do during when one finally rolls around. Recent examples include a number of people who sold their HK properties during the GFC expecting to buy back when the property market crashed.
That said, I've pulled a little money out of New Zealand now that the far left is busy damaging the economy and am debating whether to divert some spare cash into additional mortgage repayments or new investments.
