As Mike Tyson has stated, “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” In investing, that usually means that planning for a market correction sounds good. But when stocks are actually falling? That plan may go out the window.
During last year’s market crash, retail traders bought the drop. That followed the conventional plan, and it paid off well. This year, the trouble has been a number of hedge funds with no real plan to deal with big rallies in heavily shorted companies like GameStop (GME), or with no plan for the implosion of a hedge fund with highly concentrated positions. Ultimately, given the market’s fluctuations, unusual events can occur. Rather than plan for a correction, traders should look to plan for the next extreme event, and figure out how to benefit from that move, rather than sweat a normal correction.

If you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes.
