Fidelity.com Is Down

Yesterday, in a moment of humiliation for the entire alternative asset management industry, the websites of the largest US roboadvisors were down, blocking traders from accessing their trading accounts during the worst market rout in history.

Well, just hours later, the humiliation has spread to the pinnacle of the traditional asset management industry, because as of this moment the website of Fidelity  has just gone offline, supposedly as a result of record traffic as investors scramble to find out just how big is the damage to their accounts from yesterday's historic selloff.

And people say that’s why they don’t buy bitcoin is because when it shits the bed the exchanges will be down and you can’t unload it or use it as an opportunity to BTFD. Stocks are no different. Even fidelity shit itself on this pissant correction. Unless you ARE the exchange then you are a bag holder and WILL get screwed.

Good for them, you shouldn't be doing anything now anyway. This is just a correction, if you let the media panic you into a sucker sell, you'll get screwed.

It's just millions of 401K holders checking their balances to assess the damage.  Fidelity is probably the biggest holder of 401K and IRA retirement accounts.  Those players don't trade, and they aren't causing the current volotility.  They do, however, follow their account balances to see how rich they're getting.  The whole bunch of them fancy themselves shrewd investors if things go up, and innocent victims if things go down.

<< shrewd investors if things go up, and innocent victims if things go down. >>

How true. Even some "experts" are totally clueless. I remember Vanguard Precious Metals Fund totally missing the bull market in gold. Incredibly, it held zero gold as gold rose from $750/oz to $1,800/oz.

I guess those three-martini lunches soaked their brains.

Even the WSJ proved how dumb most of these experts are when they matched a monkey throwing darts vs. expert traders.

 

The monkeys won 87% of the time!

Well it's nice to know what becomes of these multi million dollar computer systems. All these companies are forever tainted. 

Its all a joke. Now you assholes know what we go through when coinbase crashes! Your systems are just as bad.

Bro, bitheadz keep positing the scenario as me vs you i.e. crypto vs stocks.  But wisdom invests contrary to the herd.  If you find yourself mooing loudly and charging this way and that, you're a cow, and if you're a cow, chances are that you are indeed part of a herd. I've been there, but not at the moment.

Comparative happiness is a false premise. 

Sucks for you = sucks for me. 

We enjoy the fancy dazzlings of well-woven rugs however we always recognize just how it could be pulled out from under us.
