Today’s must read comes from Ben Carlson:

Bull Markets: Fear of missing out.
Bear Markets: Fear of being in.

Bull Markets: Everything I buy is going up — I’m a genius.
Bear Markets: Everything I buy is going down — I’m an idiot.

Bull Markets: See, fundamentals always win out.
Bear Markets: See, technicals and sentiment rule the markets.

Bull Markets: Buy & hold works.
Bear Markets: Buy & hold is dead.

Bear Markets: I lied — I’m fearful when other are fearful.

Bull Markets: Why would I want to diversify?
Bear Markets: Why was I so concentrated?
