What else have you “come to expect” from your stock exchange?

What else is there to say that hasn’t already been said ?

If you still have “medium-risk” mutual funds comprised of a mélange of sliced-and-diced “smart bets” and “trending stocks” in the beleaguered fiat tech sector, or in any fiat sector of any description for that matter, fleshing out or even providing the basis for the portfolio you’ve scrimped and saved to build and that’s now wrapped up in a “tax efficient” bubble of a registered government account, don’t say that there weren’t signs that superficial style had overtaken substance.

Don’t say that we didn’t warn you.

Don’t say “it was too hard” or “it was too expensive” or “everyone else did x so I felt safe” or “I was turned off by the look of it” because your cries and sobs won’t be heard ; not because your vocal folds won’t be oscillating in your throat, not because you don’t have a noisehole to voice your “opinions” into, but because your pathetic pleas will be drowned out by the millions upon millions of similar such loserly lamentations emitted from the already-overflowing swamp of despondent wannabes who “just wanted to” – your fellow amateurs who came to expect – and the increasingly hungry and assuredly desperate mouths of your wives, sons, and daughters.

Investing is a professional activity, not a game show. Treat it as such.
