A collection of stock quotes and aphorisms to seize the mentality of a bear market and turn it into an opportunity.

Because stock investment is invested in stocks that are expected to rise, it is inevitable that they will be psychologically contracted if they fall. A downtrend can be a temporary correction or it can be a downtrend. However, this is something you will only know after passing through, and at that point, my skills, including mental management, protect my investment.

Stock prices are rising and falling, so it seems that you have to come up with your own strategy to deal with each one. When it goes up, the happy circuit still works, but in a down market, the mentality can explode, so the strategy must include the mentality.

How can you hold onto your mentality in a bear market? How to respond to a downtrend?

There are several counter strategies, but to get your mind right, we have compiled quotes from investment masters that are worth reading in a bear market.

More explanation or interpretation is needed, but it is read a little differently depending on the situation I'm in, so I moved it without interpretation. I just did grouping on my own.
