after the 2008 recession, this is the first time we are observing a heavy pressure. World markets are also showing negative numbers.
no one will tell you to have a distance from the market, because they will short on your positions.
In the market, everyone wants the profits.
be aware, you will make money if you learn not to lose money.
they will start pramotions about recession when they want to give panic to all and have big profits.
if you are holding solid companies then not to worry. 2019 can be 'no profits' year but it will be a good opportunity to add more.
