From the market low of 6,433.27 in 2009 (at the end of the recession) through 2018, the markets had a fantastic ride. The Dow Jones Industrial Average had gained more than 258%—up some 16,000 points. The ride has not been without periods of volatility, including the sweeping highs and lows of 2018 and the recent erratic volatility of the market in the age of coronavirus.
And in these very unpredictable times, one of your best investing strategies is to protect what you already have. When you read our Premium Report Protecting Your Portfolio, you’ll get the six steps for protecting your portfolio and profiting in a volatile market.
When we interpret current market volatility signals for you, remaining defensive in your portfolio is a good strategy—and that can mean rebalancing your portfolio to combat the volatility. Don’t be caught doing one of these two extremes: 1) Cash in everything; or 2) Do nothing. These are exactly the wrong moves during market downturns.
When the market is in an upward trend, we often become so excited that we begin to buy stocks, willy-nilly, with no thought to a balanced portfolio. And when the market drops, we become frozen, not knowing whether we should continue to buy more, to take advantage of the lower prices, or just bail out and sell everything.
The result is usually this: When under pressure, investors will generally make exactly the wrong decision! You don’t have to make the same mistakes. Instead, with a little thought and planning, you can create an all-weather portfolio.
You’ll get all the details about the six steps to minimize losses and maximize profits in these volatile times—when you read our Premium Report Protecting Your Portfolio, including:
- Step #1: Setting Price Targets—Follow this advice—and use this specific formula—for setting a price target for every stock you buy … at the time you buy the stock. And you’ll get specific scenarios that demonstrate exactly how to set price targets the right way!
- Step #2: Setting Stop-Losses—You’ll discover what a stop-loss is and how to set it for your own personal investing style. Find out the difference between a formal stop-loss order and a “mental-reminder” stop-loss. And you’ll learn how to set wider stop-losses so that you can ride out a temporary drop, without inadvertently cashing out of a stock with excellent long-term potential.
- Step #3: Diversifying—You’ve surely heard about the importance of diversifying, but what does it mean, exactly? Read this report, and you’ll discover exactly how to arrange your exposure so that your holdings are truly diversified!
- Step #4: Dividends—Dividend stocks are a great hedge against inflation and provide terrific portfolio gains in down-market cycles. Find out exactly how to protect your portfolio while also taking advantage of market growth spurts with high-yielding stocks from a variety of sectors!
- Step #5: Rebalancing—This step is often overlooked by many investors, but you should pay attention to the sectors in your own portfolio and find out which steadier stocks are best during periods of volatility—and which riskier assets deserve some trimming from your portfolio.
- Step #6: Options—Options can be expensive and complex, but you should consider the right type of options trading to give you some portfolio protection and improve your returns when the bull market returns. Find out how to use options for your investing needs.
