Bongo Yes . You are correct. Focalism can cost you dear. If anyone really hasn't a clue have a look at the way Robbie invests (https://www.nakedtrader.co.uk/agree.htm ) Still unsure buy a copy of the art of execution by lee freeman shor. Soon you'll be trading like a pro and keeping your money safe.
I really don't understand why everyone is guessing the bottom to buy in. I never ever have managed to do that yet I've still made loads of money Buy if you like the stock. Set a stop loss to protect your capital and sit tight. It only really matters if you day trade and to mind my mind this isn't that sort of stock. Just my opinion for what its worth.
JTMacs By the end of the lockdown we should be able to put a cracking quiz team together !! We need a suitable name..... Yes Govts have known all about this... BAT. Civet.. SARS (2002) BAT. Camel. MERS (2012) BAT. Pangolin. Covid (2019) BAT. ………………...
boldboy. Exactly what do a band of ageing rockers know....!!! But seriously: boldboy Trust your own judgement... n-95 compliant are recommended I believe. (DYOR)But the bigger problem comes in preparing for the next outbreak. ( just to raise a discussion point. Just my take on it) (IMO) The cause seems to be bats due to their high resistance to diseases. The virus finds an intermediary such as a pangolin or camel and them mutates enough to infect humans with a low resistance to diseases. ( the more advanced medicine the lower) So what do we do? Lockdown and hope to find a vaccine every time? ( crashing the economy) or do we allow it into the populous hoping to build some immunity. ( Swedish model) Is this perhaps why as a percentage China has a very low death rate because its people using eastern medicines and being exposed to low levels have some built up some natural immunity? ( just like other peoples views)
