Re: Swiss stocks plunge over 4%

Right now (11 am) they have recovered a good portion of that loss.

I feel a little sea sick.
Sold all my equities in April 2010 at a reasonable profit - decided I did not have the strong enough stomach to watch the roller coaster that I foresaw.
At first I thought I had made a mistake as things continued to rise but now the current price is well below what I had sold at.

You need a strong stomach to hold equities, however you can profit from other peoples pain. I like a sell off's as it shakes out the sellers & I can buy for less. It's just a matter of how you handle emotions.

The Local's an absolute gem down the Rappi, as soon as he gets online he turns into a troll. Red rep on its way.
