But I'm staying put. I could easily see this bear market stretching out another 12 months or more

Hey 5th,
If you suspect a long drawn out bear market with further declines in value, isn't there a contradiction in your thinking there or is the notion of staying 100% invested unwavering? I know the question has no perfect or definitive answer, but I also found myself very certain of a further drop in January but took no action. It's always easier to criticize oneself in hindsight but I was literally arguing with others like I was short and yet didn't consider selling anything because buy n hold is indoctrinated in me now!

Curious how others are handling these thoughts and plans for the coming weeks of continued war, inflation, supply chain woes, rate hikes, perceived high valuations ... oh and have a great Sunday!
