The market usually has his/her own mind - thus has it's own mixed views on different news that at times exaggerates one's current status on any of one's holdings.
Whether we also follow the trend or not, it's still our own choices that determine if we win or not.
Only if things were just moving in one direction then we all could be rich???
Well actually, it's not the ups and downs that make us rich but the holdings in long terms that makes this!
