I can already see you thinking “what the hell does a trade war have to do with personal finance?!” It’s because it impacts every one of us. This has become even more obvious for us retail investors with the biggest indices giving away recent gains. The Dow, for example, is down 5% from its recent top.
It gives us ample opportunities to buy but because of the recent drops and “scary” headlines, some might become sheep that follow the herd while it’s actually time to become a wolf and devour some stock.
