In September, the markets fell again.
And not only a little.
The ETF VWRL which represents 80% of my stock investments lost -8.1%.
Its second biggest drop of the year ( after June -8.5%).
1. A small positive point
September is the dividend month for VWRL.
So even though it's down, companies are still making profit and sharing it.
2. So how does it feel to be a young FIRE (Financial Independent, Retire Early) in this environment?
It's hard to see your hard-earned savings virtually melt away.
And at the same time, a (large) part of those savings were built on the previous falls.
3. Often the most significant falls bring the biggest recoveries.
4. But when will it happen Dror?
I have no idea. And I don't think anyone really knows.
I just know that I'm keeping my confidence and I'll be there when it comes up.😀
5. Oh yes, I almost forgot, a little secret. Don't be unhappy when it goes down and too happy when it goes up...
In both cases, it's not up to you.
