This past month has been a difficult one for equity investors. There have been more down days than up days and many investors AND bystanders are getting nervous. We have been experiencing a bull market for the last five years and somehow investors are surprised when the market goes down.
My friend and coach Mark Matson did a video, link below, entitled ‘Gearing Up For The Next Crash..” I encourage you to watch it. It is long, a little over one hour. I believe it will put your mind at ease and accept all downturns as part of the investment process.
After you watch this video please share it with your friends and family or anyone you believe would benefit from this valuable information.
As always there are three simple rules of investing:
- Own equities and high quality short term fixed income.
- Globally diversify.
Although they are simple they prove to be very difficult to follow. An investor coach/fiduciary adviser will provide the help building YOUR prudent portfolio and the discipline to stay the course during the inevitable downturns.
