So what do you do after all these headlines show up, and, even worse, you click on some of them and read the bearish statements? Of course, decide for yourself that you will not buy Russia for a long time. You swear to yourself you will even not consider it for a couple of years, until the dust settles.
This is one of those textbook examples of market crashes which offer a buy opportunity more than anything else. But how will you buy if you just swore to yourself you will not touch this market, and even not look at it for a long time?
