Within the " broad spectrum " should be an established hedging program that allows one to navigate thru even the most serious correction without creating a slew of taxable events and timing scenarios that are far beyond the scope of everyday investors and tricky waters even for seasoned professionals. Most " investors" are nothing short of dice tossers that have little to no understanding of the dynamics of a market , causation and what is really driving prices behind tbe scenes and in the trenches. Unless one has experienced a few rounds of cyclical behavior in the economy and its reflection in the markets they are simply along for the ride. Theres nothing wrong with that unless one is a member of the general public that truly believes they are an investor and not simply a gambler. By the grace of God the markets have been very kind to thw investing public. Since practically all of them lack sn understanding of knowing how to capitalize on blood in the streets , have zero knowledge of hedging, zero knowledge of how taxation affects overall returns it would be one hell of a mess if and likely when markets perform in a manner as they did when i began investing. In those days you had to actually earn your money in the markets with very few (if any) ways to hedge etc. The best things that ever happened to the markets are #1 tax deferred vehicles such as 401ks , IRA's , Keogh etc #2. Derivatives #3 lower tax rates and especially the very reasonable long term capital gains rate

    So what ? My only greater fool stock holding is a stock i have in my trust account and some in my personal account. Ive had it since 1988, adjusted for splits my cost basis is almost zero. The most i ever paid for it was 38 . its around 500 now.
    I didnt survive as an investor for this many years playing the " buy it and pray it goes up" game. Over 80% of my liquid investable and margin equity has been in creating synthetic neutrals out of derivatives on futures and indexed contracts . im not into gambling , thats for the general public and dice tossers. Once i figured out a way to short premiums coupling constants of units and strikes to the variables of volatility and premiums and using the ultimate diminishing factor of time to short the coupled product against its been candy from a baby for me. It amazes me how fucking stupid the public can be. The teue professionals play the game in an entirely different way than the general public. Why gamble and also have to wait for someone else to create the entry and exit . ? With synthetics you create your own . ive been shit kicked a few times but nothing compared to tbe profits. The only straight big time gamble ive taken in a while is crypto currency. Im down $40k but knew going in ill lose the 105k i have in it or eventually walk off with 500k +. Either way it doesnt change my life if i lose it. I may be in it 10 years who knows ? The only negative to me is not the 40k im down but the use of the 105 i have in it. I havent lost till i sell it.

    Nope I had 4000 shares of it and sold 1600 shares in Feb at $1461. My average cost was $24 a share on the 4000 which means I got back all my initial investment on that sale and then some. Since it's in my Roth 401k it's not taxable. The 2400 shares I have now have essentially a zero cost to me. 2400 shares at the current price is just under $3.4 million. I've got the money from the 1600 shares sitting in cash management fund that is not effected by the markets. I've got my holding in EA and Express Scripts both with very low cost per share. I'm a long term investor, I'm not trying to catch a falling knife.

    The markets are dropping because of the talk of a trade war, Facebooks issues and a general 15-20 correction. The Dow 30 right now is building support at 23600 as soon as the trade war issue is resolved we'll see the markets begin to move back toward the highs.
