They do have great writers as well as some idiots. Calling market crash is sure great way to get attention, after all, that's what most web writers need to do. Examples:
The "Senior Investment Columnists" stock market CRASH predictions in articles on marketwatch since May 2010:
May 25, 2010 - "CRASH dead ahead. Sell. Get liquid now."
Feb 22, 2011 - "Market CRASH 2011: It will hit by Christmas"
July 31, 2012 - "The real CRASH is dead ahead"
June 5, 2013 - "The next CRASH will happen by year-end"
Feb. 24, 2014 - "CRASH of 2014. Like 1929 you'll never see it coming"
Feb. 25, 2015 - "Countdown to CRASH begins"
Sept. 5, 2015 - Predicted another stock market CRASH in his article about Trump.
If I had believed them, I would have never grown as an investor. As an individual investor, our goals are long term, we evaluate, we do risk management. Looking forward to grow with my fellow investors, going thru bad and good times together =)
Sharing one of my positions:
Last night I did a 170 PUT option on PNRA. My personal take, feel free to leave your comments of my position, I could be wrong and we learn together. Looking at FA and evaluation, it's under-valued. It looks like recovering from an over-sold territory. $170 shows strong support. I will monitor my PUTS on this and will update on my follow up actions if I close/roll/expire..
