More often than not, the crash is as sudden as the spike that preceded it.

And sometimes, as in the case of Cisco (CSCO) or Micro (MU)… the stocks eventually do start to crawl back up… after 20+ years! (who has that kind of time?)


Jeffry covered the psychology of the “boom & bust” cycle on yesterday’s episode of Morning Monster.
