meh. VTI, same price as a month ago and also months ago. Still +34% in YTD 2021 and +102.5% in 5 years. Still $2.70 US per share dividend. Don't listen to the news, they're just trying to drive up trading fees.
And, it's also only 25% of my "foolproofness", even though it owns 3980 diversified stocks, currently riding it out at 25.9% of asset allocation, since selling a significant chunk to rebalance to bonds.
Even emerging markets VEE, which is mostly China in it's 5235 stocks, dropped from $39.50 to $38. but still sitting at +19% since buying.... Yawwwnnn.....
New, Schmews. Buy and hold. Buy more till your dividends are juicy and hope the world ends quickly in a ball of fire if FO is right.
serious though, Evergrand defaults and goes tits up, someone else takes their place in the index. meh.
I don't pay much attention to news about crypto either. They love to tell us when it crashes but are pretty quiet about the recoveries.
I could see the fallout from evergrande not spreading too far as well.
Despite making some bad decisions with shitcoins I'm still up 100% over the last six months (for now) Being the idiot I am i converted everything into Cardano. Signs are still bullish longterm and I get about 15 coins (at current price) per month for staking which is fun.
Hindsight fallacy incoming...if I had just gone all in on cardano from the beginning I'd be making almost an extra paycheque per month in passive income. D'oh
As for ball of fire I don't think it'll be that dramatic. I'm just expecting to starve to death.
