I believe in the philosophy of value. Not just in investing but in most of the decision that I take in life. The key is to recognize the value and to keep an independent opinion irrespective of the mood of the crowd.
Last year's events rattled me too and inspired me to search for value in other places as well. For past one year, I have mostly been doing options trading. I usually trade in low price, high volatility shares that are selling for discount.
