Last night I posted about how I planned to use today's down market at a buying opportunity. I had planned to deploy some extra cash and get some value buys. You know, average down on some positions. Well,i you took a look at the market today you'd know that plan went out the window.
I'm glad that the turmoil in the Middle East is lesser than what we thought (for now!), But it for sure had the reverse effect on my stock buys today. I'm not saying I bought at All Time HIghs, but I sure didn't average down!
The silver lining to this is that it means that I was able to get more money into the market and into my dividend paying stocks. Dividends are my favorite route of passive income so I am at least happy to have grown my shares a bit.
Beyond that slight market miscalculation for the day, everything went well. I was occupied with stuff in real life to make some posts that I want to. I'll be sure to catch you guys up in that tomorrow!
In summary, I can admit when a market strategy doesn't go as planned and I know how to make the best out of it.
