“Dark Clouds are lining the sky,
panic sellers don’t know the reason why!
Some say China is in a mess,
but difficult to say how bad is the case.
They also fear that the Fed may hike
because of which FII selling will spike.
Back home there is no dearth of bad news,
all sorts of ‘market experts’ are shouting their views.
With such gloom its is easy to get sold,
beware before your investments catch a cold!
Don’t panic and sell your gold (good stocks/Equity funds).
In fact, its time to be rational and bold!
The market is a funny animal,
alternately called a bull or a bear.
I would call it an Investment Carnival
that is a also a ‘wealth making’ friend dear
Amid all such noise,
what you need is a saner voice.
This crash is not the first,
nor will it be the last!
Human emotions of greed and fear
are as old as the time when man hunted deer!
The markets have survived two world wars!
They have taken thousands of wounds and scars!
Yet they have bounced back time and again,
rewarding investors who have bought in the bargain
So do not worry whether the markets will vanish,
just pick companies/funds that you think will flourish!
The markets will move, don’t try to time.
Every time they fall, just put in a dime.
This is an easy and time tested tool,
Wonder why they don’t teach this in school?
While we try to fit the text book theories,
the market would have climbed the wall of worries.
History tells us that humans will prosper and companies will do well.
Markets will rise, taking up with them, the stocks which once fell.
However it will take time, difficult times will make you queasy
But who said making money, was ever easy!”
This poem found it’s way to me across the not so dark clouds of social media (WhatsApp and Facebook). So I don’t know who the poet is but 3 cheers for his/her creation!
