Smart to avoid those.... and following a few youtube channels without crazy thumbnails and stupid emotional impulse hypes
You have entered the market in a very manic time - you can identify this not only by markets seemingly "always going up", but also by the amount of retail traders/investors acting like they are professionals. I saw 2 average Joe's on a TicToc video saying that their followers can live just like them. The "secret" is to buy when it's going up, and sell when it stops going up. Lol
The bust will sort all of those people out... just make sure it doesn't sort you out too
Beginning your investing journey at this stage of the cycle will shape the type of investor you become, and it will be dramatically different to someone that enters at the opposite end of the cycle. It's somewhat similar to someone beginning with some wins or beginning with some losses - it likely shapes your level of risk aversion and return expectation. At least to some degree...
