Stock market is like the property market but it moves 1000 times faster. If you own an awesome property, you don't sell it when it tanks right? It applies to the stock market. I hope this helps you look long into your investment.

- We hate Trump. As long we can get as many people to hate him, he will most probably lose the next election and we can renegotiate.
- If we give in, he will win votes.
