The current cocktail has it all: supply problems, sharply rising Corona case numbers and a price upswing that has not been as violent as it has been for 30 years. The reasons why the Fear & Greed Index has fallen from 85 points (extreme greed) to 31 points (fear). Business leaders are therefore looking ahead with scepticism, as they last did in January, i.e. in the middle of the second COVID wave. In the meantime, the uncertainty has also spread to stock market players, as the recent downturn on the global markets shows. The market's perspective has changed: the balance sheet season is as good as over, macro data are coming to the fore. And before last Thursday, inflation in particular stood out unpleasantly.

So far, little is known about it. But it has also unsettled the markets. But to speak of a crash is pure sensationalism. It was no more than a correction, which is also comparatively small enough to have trimmed the overall indices by only a few points. What do we make of it now? We remain patient and invest! Just don't let yourself be unsettled by all the clickbait out there, sometimes it's also better to just not constantly look at your portfolios, because these days that only has negative consequences of personal insecurity.
𝐓𝐢𝐩: during such corrections it is very advisable to add capital to the copy (*copy open trades*), so that you can make the best possible use of the weakened prices and take all the more advantage of the following uptrend. I myself only do this on the first of the month for the sake of transparency for you copiers, but there's nothing stopping you from doing it at other times too.
The beauty of it is that with our long-term time horizon, you can use each of these corrections to buy additional shares. Then you don't care so much if another correction comes after the correction, because you just keep following through with the system. Since the portfolio is balanced and holds strong stocks, you can do this with a clear conscience.
