Terrible sensationalism for a headline. The issue is bond ETFs containing corporate bonds and more specifically those that are wholly corporate bonds. This is a problem 7 years in the making exacerbated by investors chasing yield. A needed reckoning and clean out unfortunately for those who let their guard down.

It is a good buying opportunity which I am taking advantage of. Nobody knows where the bottom is but buying twice a week (Couple hundreds every purchase) always worked for me. And I always sell around when I see enough profit (5-7%). Then wait and repeat 🙂

History is the best lesson. It always repeats itself. Things jumped 20% in one year and we were all waiting for a crash.

I am 'buy and hold' so I don't (try not to) buy shite in the first place.
