A chart of the DJI is a digital recording of the mood of the massesThe stock market likes to anticipate events. Notice that the crash began in February when experts were just beginning to think the corona virus might be serious.The bottom came in early March when doom and gloom was all around. Now all the talk is when the quarantine will be lifted or at least eased. I don't believe the world is ending - I think this thing will blow over eventually and the world go back to normal and the stock market reflects this.
For emotion to be in harmony with trading do the opposite of the masses only play the short side. When optimism is high people buy when fear is high people sell. To make emotion In harmony with investing buy puts when optimism is high sell your puts when fear in the streets. By only playing short side your buying when everyone else is buying & selling when everyone else is selling only thing is your buying & selling puts.For the really paranoid, instead of getting out, why not implement stop losses? Then you could actually make money and be somewhat protected if your fears of a crash come true.
