Like it or not, stock market today works as the global ocean. It engulfs everything and affects everyone. And just as the global ocean, it can wreck havoc on entire countries, even continents. There are tsunamis, storms and killer waves. Cities can be swept away in a matter of hours. But simple grain of sand can be thrown to great heights by mighty powers it can’t even begin to understand. The only way to avoid being drawn with the currents is to stay at the bottom, preferably under a huge rock (but even so you’re not 100% safe).
Do you really want to stay on the bottom for the whole life?
I say: if there is no escape, you have to learn how to stay on top of those waves. Learn how to play along with stock market and do not attempt to hide from it. There really is no way to do it in modern days.
