Down Markets Define Who You Are as an Investor

Down markets define who you are as an investor. You're always going to be comfortable when you're making money. The big question is, how uncomfortable are you when you're not making any money, or worse, making losses? In the face of a down market, you, as an investor, must avoid panic-driven decisions and embrace patience and rationality. The markets will always go down; your job is to view it as a classroom where risk tolerance and long-term vision are honed. Turn these moments into a chance to refine strategies, rebalance portfolios, and seek value amid turmoil. Roshan explains that those who weather the storm unshaken often emerge as seasoned, disciplined investors. Your ability to navigate and learn from down markets defines not only financial success but also the core attributes of your character.
