Market on Sale

Falling prices. Posts on dread and losses on the forums. I losing money.
However, I am feeling excited .. excited by the low prices. There is a sale going on in the market. The discount may get larger in the coming days, or it may narrow.
But I think that the sale will end someday. The prices will get dearer someday.
Meanwhile, I am browsing the stocks more closely, seeing if the discount will get larger. Hopefully, I will be able to deploy my savings before the discount window closes. After all, it is a waste not to profit from sales.
