In a stampede, it is best not to fight the mad crowd. Go along with the flow because there’s nothing else you can do. Be patient and don’t push around. Let the crowd itself push you along, waiting for an opportunity to climb to a higher place. When you get to a high place, wait until the crowd regains its sanity. A stampeding crowd is not like somebody you can reason with: it is no less deadly than cattle on the run.
There will be a correction, and it will give you an opportunity to buy. Don’t buy when it’s on the way up, because the only way to get some gold then would be to set your price to market, and you’ll surely get crushed. Buy on a day when there is a correction. Set a limit price and wait patiently for your order to materialize. If your price is too low, you may not get any gold, but that’s ok. Wait for the next down cycle.
