Acrophobia: fear of heights.
Unlike specific phobias like aerophobia, fear of flying, acrophobia can cause a person to fear a variety of things related to being too far off the ground.
Acrophobic people may equally fear being on a high floor of a building or simply perching upon a ladder.

There could still be quite a bit more upside.
Don’t let a "fear of heights" keep you from making money in the market.
