Welcome to The Stock Market Crash
-- "A down-to-earth website about the downturn."
The global financial systems are experiencing an unprecedented crisis. Markets around the world are in a highly volatile state. Every so often, we hear about the collapse of financial systems of whole countries or regions - bad news that severely affects stock markets everywhere. The phrase - stock market crash - has now kind of turned into a household term.
Were you a victim of the stock market crash?
- Did you trade with significant amounts of money and found yourself to be always on the wrong side of the trade, be it long or short?
- Did you have significant positions in the stock market, on the long or short side, and watch helplessly as your portfolio essentially evaporated into thin air?
- Did you have bulk of your retirement money in financial instruments that were tied to the stock market and hence experienced a 30-40% reduction in your hard-earned retirement funds? And, the moment you realized this and moved the money out of stock-based funds, did you watch, once again helplessly, as the markets rocketed up like there was no tomorrow?
If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, you are not alone. Investors and traders around the world have lost a lot of money in the stock market crash, and the associated bear market rallies. It really hurts when you realise that much of these losses could've been avoided with a bit more due diligence on your part. Well, don't lose heart yet. This is neither the first nor the last stock market crash. So... Let's not waste any more time. Together, let's see what we can learn from the past and do to avoid being in the next stock market crash, maybe even profit from one. We want you to laugh, or at least smile, all the way to your bank even in a year that the S&P crashes 50%.
