To put it simply, Markets crash because of unpredictable events(IMO).
2008 – the housing bubble burst
2020 – pandemic and uncertainty of future (people sold because it was getting out of hand, unemployment etc)
2021- inflation and another housing crisis (foreseen)
We had a correction a while ago, and while I don’t think stocks will continue to go up like it did in 2020 and earlier this year, everything has been foreseen, and people have made investments in/out of stocks in reaction to this. This includes the interest rates, inflation, stimmy money, etc.
Everybody wants there to be a crash because it’s logical, the markets are going up like crazy it needs to go down now right? I even remember the amount of people here during April May and June that YOLO’d on puts showing graphs and data and what not.
If markets crash we would just put our money on the dips. The thing is, we always assume it’s gonna come, it ain’t gonna happen when we think it is. It’s gonna happen when we least expect it.
My guess is It will likely happen a few years down the road, when a shift in economic power happens.
TLDR: STONKs only go up
