Woke up one morning, I was shocked to read about the US killing Iran’s top general on Iraq soil. Few days later, Iran started firing ballistic missiles into US Green zone in Iraq. Those event unfold so quickly that it really shook my confidents in the recently bull run. Looking at my portfolio, I was almost fully vested in the market. My huge positions in the market during this “brink of war” posed a risk that I’m not ready to stomach at this moment.
So I decided to sell some counters to rebalance my portfolio. I thought maybe raising cash and wait for better entry moment was a wise choice to make, however the stock market did not yield to the world events. It recovered very quickly when Trump announced no casualty and calm the market.
