Don't Catch a Falling Knife
Today I would simply like to say that one should wait until the stock market stabilizes and begins a sustained upwards trend before you decide to buy in. While you may look at those low stock prices and start to salivate, please hold off, unless of course you prefer to just roll the dice with wild abandon, or have gambling money you want to spend now. By holding off, you might not end up buying the absolute bottom, but don't be greedy, have some prudence in these times of uncertainty. If you prefer, buy in on a regular basis over time (dollar cost averaging), that's a better idea than trying to grab at some of these falling knives.
