I've been seeing lots of advice over the last 3 weeks, to take advantage and "BUY THE DIPS" and "THIS IS WHERE BIG GAINS ARE MADE".

I've been investing since 1996.

I've seen a lot (and done some, too) of dip buying... that turned into "catching falling knives".I KNOW the bloody pain.

As I peruse the charts of the growth companies on my watch lists, I see today, that they opened down, below yesterday's close, and while rising, many are still below yesterday's close.
People are "buying the dip", which is causing the "up" on the day.

IF tomorrow and next week is more "down" I expect crying and whining, due to the dip turning into falling knives.
So, be ready. 😉
It'll be short term painful.
A year from now, or perhaps several years, this too shall.have passed. Don't get too stressed.
