No brother I was not following anyone here.

You are exactly right all these senior people are super manipulators.

When this person opened this thread I was one of the person who spoke against.

But think how many new comers afraid to buy at low because of this cheap talks without doing right environment analysis.

During that time they would have purchased JKH below 100, LOLC below 100, TKYO below 25, RCL 65 I feel sorry for them.

These experienced seniors are good for something else

Waiting for sheildskye, but rest assured- market has reached rock bottom. I believe the same thing realists do= Worst times force best decisions, that is what separates a genius from a flock of fools.

@Quibit wrote:What is a Falling Knife?

A falling knife describes a stock which has experienced a rapid decline in value in a short amount of time. Just like a falling knife, you don't want to catch these companies on their way down.

[For explanations of nine other strange investment terms, read Dead Cat Bounce -- 10 Strange Investment Terms Explained.]
How Does a Falling Knife Work?

A stock's downward price behavior can qualify it as a falling knife for numerous reasons. In many cases, negative news about an issuing company can initially result in a stock's falling knife behavior subsequent to widespread market divestiture. Under these circumstances, the stock's price will often recuperate in the market in the wake of a positive follow-up announcement by the issuer.

Freddie Mac is a good example of a falling knife. In July 2008, as people realized the true extent of the housing crisis, Freddie Mac saw its stock price fall 77.8% in less than one month.



Why Does a Falling Knife Matter?

A falling knife represents a stock whose viability as an investment has diminished. Under certain circumstances a falling knife may represent an opportunity to purchase the stock at a low price with the distinct possibility of price recuperation and rapid capital appreciation. Like a falling knife, these companies are safe to pick up only after they've hit the floor.

When market was clearly going up she tried to panic the people by posting market is going to fall.
Same person has collected low and now again talking about profit taking cycles
Beware of these manipulators they will suck your hard earned money

Not only those market manipulators , you should not follow anyone. if a person says market will drop to 4800 or market will move to 7000 , in both cases you should just ignore that. market manipulators can be in both ends.
I am telling this because this same person is also one of them. you can check his post and how he tried hard to mislead new comers.

take away is "never follow anyone". learn how to analyze, estimate value, learn market behaviors, put all together and decide your prices (value is not the price, price will be decided by the market, market movement will be developed based on lot of other factors). calculate risk, come up with all risk mitigation plan. understand the thumb rule that when market gradually increase the probability of having a market dip increase, consider that and act accordingly. but be patient and it is not necessary to react for every development in the market.

But most important thing is, understand this person is also a manipulator who works for a third party.

In my previous post i said , when market increase the probability of having a market dip will also increase and we should act accordingly. 
So i thought for some members it will be valuable if i can share what i usually do (99% members , this is not important because they have build up their own strategy to address this, but for the rest this might be important ).

It is simple this is what i did. when market reached very close to 6000, that was one of action point according to my risk mitigating plan. my well planned action was liquidate 10% of my portfolio and keep cash ready.
I never saw this covid is coming or any sort of market dip. honestly i thought market will move to 6200 and then there will be a correction (that is not based on analysis, it is based on the momentum market gained in mid September) 

But i can not deviate from the original plan (because that plan was created putting lot of things in to consideration, so my emotions are not important, i should execute the plan).

here is the proof , my cash statement.
10% of my portfolio is just 4.5 mn , so you can see what i sold
Dont catch falling knives! - Page 3 Cash-s11

Why i sold RCL?   my target price was 120 , so it came very close that is one of my pick
Why I sold dialog ? i can say the reason, it is unfair to people who invested in dialog (but dialog can be sold even for 11.60)
Why i sold SAMP? my target price was 145, but it develop negative short term momentum
Why i sold COMB? No i didn't sell it, only  small portion were sold because i needed to make it 4.5 mn

March & May 2020 scenario is irrelevant, because that was the very first time the country faced a pandemic and the panic is justifiable, but at present people are aware of the threat and knowledgeable that it is manageable/controllable situation.

The latest woes have left millions of small investors feeling more confused than ever.
The free markets and common sense beg us to flee to safety. However, that's not to say there will not be any speed bumps on the road to prosperity.
The stock market's sudden downturn has left investors asking a disturbingly familiar question: What should I do now? The latest woes have left millions of small investors feeling more confused than ever. The volatility has triggered frantic calls from small investors who are desperate for guidance.
The up trend seems to have run out of steam for the time being. There could be a fair amount of pain to come as this drama escalates.
The disappointments are just as much a part of the process as the victories. The greatest wealth is always created from the ashes of chaos. If you are not in the game you'll miss the investment opportunities the current crisis creates. Pick yourself up, quickly take a positive step, and know that you’re closer to reaching your goal than you’ve ever been before.
Good luck and safe trading!
