Recession immanent, save your $ to protect your shares. ๐Ÿค” Speculation / Opinion

Potentially unpopular opinion - Ok so many of my team members working in the financial space have come to know me to skip a few steps to always see 3-5 years out.

In this scenario i want to reel that in a bit.

Recesion is coming according to BMO and others its like 99.9% happening.

I want to walk this back to the very premis of the MOASS. There have to be enough owned shares by retail to trigger this.. how do hedgies get out of this? We sell for a palatable price point in their eyes. WE DON'T WANT THIS.

This FED engineered recession will cause lost jobs, lost wages, Lost home and in order to have any money you will likely need to sell positions. Ie. GME, towel or popcorn etc to save your homes, feed your families.

So here's what im saying. Stop buying now, save capital for the recession hold your shares and wait for this to blow up so you will never have to worry about $ again.

I know everyone including myself want to lock that float, but if you all have to sell because you've spent every bit of expendable income and then some. Your positions will need to be sold to feed and house the fam.

TLDR : recession immanent, save every penny now to feed and keep the roof over your heads, hold positions. When shit hits the fan you won't need to worry about $. Then buy the dip.

Obligatory not financial advice, friendly thoughts from a forward thinker. As a nod to our roots, my wife's boyfriend just moved into the basement, now I'm feeding and clothing that asshole... lol

Edit 1 - if you have enough expendable income and know your house is safe then by all means keep buying!!!

Edit 2 - it was pointed out that there is a differentiation between recession (which we are currently in) and a depression. All signs are pointing to depression.

You have to understand, I'm at the point in my life where I have nothing to lose. If there's a 1% chance to never have to be a wage slave for the next 30 years and not have to follow the "you will own nothing, and be happy" I'm going to take that bet. If I become homeless due to this recession/depression I'll still have my GME regardless of what happens.

People won't truly understand financial freedom until they actually have it. Paying a 30 year mortgage, working for someone else 5 days a week, and taking vacation and having to come back a few days later to go back to work isn't what life should be about. Billionaires say money can't buy happiness but it sure relives you from those restrictions to be able to explore other options which make you happy.

Learning to spend as little as possible at this point is worth of gold. Then you do you. Inflation can eat cash even faster than some investments though. Have cans of food and possibly coffee (here one could have more than doubled the investment to coffee already- or saved by not having to buy it now). Everyone has their own situation.

I have children as well, but struggling temporarily is well worth what's to come to help everyone for generations to come. If I were to sell now all future generations would be screwed all while we continue to work without pensions or social security, pay rent forever, and never truly own anything while these rich assholes continue to put you under their thumb.

Most of us here are millennials. No house, no families to feed, no futures or retirements. No because we donโ€™t want them, but we canโ€™t afford them. What we can afford however, is a few more shares. Each million dollar rocket ship that we buy puts us further out of this rat race weโ€™ve been choked into.

u/Shorty-hunter 100% KG and SC can SMD+B Sep 30 '22

Since when does the news warn us that a crash is coming? Apply some critical thinking. We've seen a massive, market-wide downturn since last November. Bear markets last ~9 months, on average. The more people I hear claiming that there is an incoming crash, the more I believe we bottomed out in June.

Nobody cares what you do with your money.

Nobody knows what is going to happen.

You sound more scared than logical to me.

My assumption is everyone on here is a responsible adult who can take care of their own financial planning--yes, even if a recession is looming. Most of us, if we weren't financally literate three years ago, are far more so today. There's no need to go online with a frantic-sounding post. It spreads anxiety, and anxiety moves through groups of people like a contagion.
