I always think the market's about to crash! I'm risk-averse! I think I have PTSD!
I keep feeling like the market's about to crash, and it keeps not crashing. I wonder how much the 08-09 crash is going to affect my generation longer-term? I notice myself sometimes slumping back into "depression economics"-type thinking, especially with regards to hording cash and gerenally being a homebody.
I read this article recently called The Young And The Riskless and decided I wasn't quite THAT risk-averse, but definitely saw some of my investing patterns there. The article calls for young people to consider buying on margin, which I think is just plain stupid. But it did have some good points.
Anyone else out there feel like they've been missing out on good opportunities because of being too traumatized to risk?
What do y'all think of TAN as a good speculative long-term high-reward investment? Solar is certainly starting to look cheap...
Also, I miss CAPS blogs having music! So here's some music.
