This iReport is part of an assignment:
Will you still invest in stock market?
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
Although I lost over a thousand dollars on the market today I am still up well over $3000 dollars this year to date.
Since I started watching stocks a couple of years ago, it looks to me like people look for a reason to panic. If you are in a stock that you do not believe in then don't invest in them.
I buy stock in things that people need and use. I buy stocks in companies that are local and that no matter how bad it gets they will still survive.
I also protect my self by holding on to gold and that always goes up when things are bad and will always go up....
The picture above is me sneaking a look at some of my investments at work.
