Preparing for the Next Crash!
Got your attention??
Well as soon as the market goes down, the media start warning you of a eminent crash. They'll say things like the market is way over valued. Kind of like the TV show, "Sanford & Son", when Red Fox would say, "Here I come Elizabeth, it's the big one." Remember Wall street & the media feed on 2 big emotions, FEAR & GREED. They want you in and out of the market, why, more fees. If you work with a coach like me, we tell our investors to look long term. If you try to time the market, you lose. Let's look at the last 88 years of the S&P 500, from 1926 to 2013, 64 of those years were up and on an average of +21.67%. 24 years were down and on an average of -13.61%. That to me is pretty good evidence to stay invested and not panic. Take the most recent crash, 11/2007 to 2/2009, the S&P was down -50.95% and a lot of investors got out. Look at 3/2009 to 2/2014 and the market was up +181.57%!(all numbers are approximated) If you got out, when did you get back in? How much of the upturn did you miss? Nobody knows for sure when the next crash will be, but if you have a globally diversified portfolio and rebalance you can look past short term turmoil and survive most markets. By investing with Teach Wealth Management, Inc. you get a globally diversified portfolio of nearly 13,000 stocks & bonds invested in 19 different asset categories in 45 countries. Try that on your own! Then rebalance it quarterly to keep you risk level in check. What we do for clients is remarkable. Call me at 877-419-2008 to get started.
