How to survive the bear market

2022 has been an awful year for the markets, and we're only half way done. Almost every asset class has been plunging, and I think we all know the culprit - interest rates and inflation. The causes of these two are controversial topics, some say it's because of Russia, and some blame the stimulus checks back in 2020 and 2021. I am going to avoid that topic, and rather focus on what I have been doing, my thoughts on the economy, and how I am handling my portfolio.

My Portfolio in 2021

2021 has been a rocky year for the markets, espeically the technology sector. With the rise of interest rates and inflation since Feb 2021, risky assets like technology stocks have not faired well this year. I would also attribute part of lackluster performance due to most tech businesses experiencing a Demand Pulled Forward effect during 2020 pandemic year.

All eggs in one basket

The past month for me has been extremely exciting yet nerve wrecking. After placing my $80k bet on peloton, I found another great opportunity with a newly IPO'd company, and I was extremely bullish about this one.

My Biggest Bet Yet

In the past few days, I have built up my biggest position yet. This is the most nerve-wrecking, anxious position I have put myself into, yet I am confident about my bet and going for the long term.
