1) I sold JD that I bought in mid 2017 around $40's suffered the decline to $20 and at break-even sold it early 2020, to see the stock go all the way to $100.

2) Similar story with NVDA bought $200 in late 2019, suffered the decline and took a loss got out in 2020, to see the stock march relentlessly to $200. Especially this stinks very badly, my sale date marked the start of the rally.

3) At the absolute bottom of 2020 March, I held over $1.5 M in cash and bought 10 google shares. Yeap 10 shares. For a long time I thought world is going to end. The hallmark of that period is I bought lots of companies, to turn around and sell at 10%, 15%, 20% gains. I was so scared. Determined to maintain my cash level and even raised more cash. At least I still own those 10 google shares, twice I bought AMZN at $1600, to turn around sell it for 10% gains.

I have many such absolutely horror stories.
