What are paper hands versus diamond hands, and is it effective to think in these terms when it comes to investing? Bill and Anastasia use these terms to dive into several recent questions they've been receiving from nervous or curious investors. Should you change your investment strategy in anticipation of a downturn? Are there certain strategies that work better in an upmarket than a down-market? How much can outside events, like war, affect the stock markets? Bill wraps up the discussion with some investing truths that have worked for him. Anastasia mentions the "Blade Runner curse" that plagued many corporations after the release of the 1982 movie starring Harrison Ford.
