Watch in the coming weeks. The Media will be crying bloody murder. "REAL ESTATE IS GOING TO DROP 50%". "THE SKY IS FALLING" "THE WORLD IS OVER" I think you get the picture.

Granted, if you were looking for views, you would clickbait your titles as well. Let me paint a picture for you. Let's say you invest $1000 in ABC stock. In 1 year, it gained 30%, they posted record-breaking earnings and future outlook. A week later, ABC stock had a bad press piece come out. ABC stock fell 10%!

THE MAINSTREAM FOG WILL SETTLE...SEE PAST THE SMOKE AND YOU WILL SEE THE TRUTH IS FAIR MORE MUNDANE


I swear I hear on a day-to-day basis, "Is the market going to crash", "I am going to wait until the market crashes" , and my personal favorite "You agents are toast, it is 08 all over again".  

This is partly brought on by the daily nonsense the media puts out. Facts are facts and I am by no means denying that, but you can present them in a manor to fit your narrative.
