How To Be A Successful Contrarian Trader Or Investor

Sometimes it is better for the traders, because when there is a panic—a war breaks out or something like that—everything collapses, and some people are very good at jumping in and buying. Then, when the rally comes, the next day or the next month, they sell out. Now, the people who are investors can also do that, but it usually takes longer for there to be a permanent rally. - in International Man
