If there really is a crash coming, a lot of people would be really rich if they liquidated their real estate and rented for a few months until the crash.

But the flip side is that if it doesn’t crash, you will be moving to Kansas.

R58, depending on your age, you should have a certain percentage in bonds instead of stocks, the number going up every year. It hedges against longterm loss due to market crashes.

One rule of thumb is, once you hit 40 and until you retire, you should have a percentage in bonds equal to your age minus 20. So I have 38% in bonds.

And I bought a condo in 2001 with only $5K down. I now have $600K in equity.

If you were asking me, R70, I am deep into three stock market indexes (Dow, S&P, Nasdaq). I have studied those indexes all the way back to the 1940's. The Dow goes back to 1896. The other two indexes started way later.

I trade the stock indexes as futures short term only. Trading futures for me is both buy and sell. So, right now I am shorting the S&P500 because my personal indicators say so.

R60, the old adage about your age in bonds as a percentage of holdings is not a hard and fast rule. People are living longer and if you abide by that rule you risk running out of money in your 80's. And the balance between stocks vs bonds should be adjusted to favor stocks if you have a pension or other income streams in retirement in addition to social security. (That additional income can be viewed the same as an investment in bonds.)

For a real life example, at age 70 my portfolio is about 50% stocks, 35% bonds, 15% cash (all but the cash is ETF indexes with Vanguard). Very safe, low risk / low reward. Since January 2020 when I set these percentages my investments grew 8.7%, more than double the rate of my annual withdrawal rate of 3.6% during the same period. By comparison, I was a much bigger risk taker between ages 30 to 60 when my 401k was 80% stock / 20% bonds. Over the last 40 years I've seen plenty of ruts and market collapses but also tremendous upside. The average return for the S&P 500 from 1991 to 2020 was 10.72% (8.29% when adjusted for inflation).

My advice to most people beginning to invest for retirement is to sign up for your employer's 401k plan (especially if they match a portion what you contribute), or set up an automatic investment plan with a low fee brokerage firm offering an S&P 500 ETF or mutual fund (Vanguard, Fidelity, Schwabb, etc.). If you're in your 30's or 40's, take more risk than you're comfortable with because time is on your side.

by Anonymousreply 76January 22, 2022 5:17 PM

I'm R58, I'm like like r76, index funds all the way and set savings/investments on auto. Have been doing it for 21 years. I wasn't fazed in 2008 and 2020 but was slightly bummed this month because my networth was really close to my financial independence number. Meaning 4% of my investments covers my expenses. Wasn't planning to retire but it was comforting to know if I got canned, I could live off of my investments. It's all on paper of course.

Yeah, I'm little higher on equities, was over 85%. Likely a little closer to 80% with this month's stock drops. I'm hoping to be retired in 2028. I'll lower my equities to 60-65% by that point. But hey, who knows what the world will be like in 6 years.

R67. Japan has also experienced deflation since the crash. For example, the US stock market didn’t recover in nominal terms from the 1929 crash until 1951. However, the market arguably recovered its real value in less than five years in real terms because of the deflation accompanying the Great Depression.

Huge swings are sometimes a feature of end-of-cycle volatility. Many players look for a 'wash-out' sell-off that signals the end of the selling. My bet is that the selling is not over and that the lows are not in.

JPMorgan’s top stock strategist Marko Kolanovic said in a note Monday that the sell-off in equity markets was overblown.

“The recent pullback in risk assets appears overdone, and a combination of technical indicators approaching oversold territory and sentiment turning bearish suggest we could be in the final stages of this correction,” Kolanovic said. “While the market struggles to digest the rotation forced on it by rising rates, we expect the earnings season to reassure, and in a worst case scenario could see a return of the ‘Fed put.’”...

...Selling may have reached a capitulation point with the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), known on Wall Street as the market’s “fear gauge,” hitting its highest level since November 2020, surpassing the 38 level at its intraday highs.

Once the fear gauge hits those extremes, the market has a tendency to snap back, even if only temporarily.

Investors are eyeing the Fed’s policy meeting, which begins on Tuesday and wraps up Wednesday. Market participants will be looking for any signals on how much the central bank will raise interest rates this year and when it will start.

If your retirement savings are in the stock market, and you are years away from tapping those funds (and not everyone needs to access their retirement funds the first couple of years after they retire), in this type of market you should be buying ETFs and mutual funds which focus on the S&P500, or total stock market funds. No one should be selling in this market unless you are purposely looking to sell at a loss for tax harvesting.

by Anonymousreply 115January 25, 2022 3:20 PM

Although the average growth of the stock market over longer periods has been quite stable at around seven percent, on year-to-year basis, double digit gains and double digit losses are pretty typical. If you don’t have the time horizon to accommodate the losses we are witnessing this month, the stock market is not the right investment for you.

Of course there is never any guarantee you will earn a positive return but there is no truly risk else’s investment. Probably inflation indexed bonds are the only thing that approach true riskless return but you re not really going to be able to build a retirement fund on the returns inflation adjusted bonds provide.

In addition, if the US stock market collapses permanently, that will probably be a sign the US economy has permanently collapsed. In which case everybody is in trouble.

Whole life insurance policies offer a guaranteed pay out that you can withdraw from every month or take as a lump sum.

Another guaranteed source of income would be to buy property that can be rented out for a steady stream of income.

The potential gains from these options is probably not as much as the stock market, but it helps to be diversified and gives you a nice cushion.

But are either of these options indexed for inflation? If they are not, you still have a significant source of risk.

Not a time to get into the market. Despite the hype here - the market “will never let you down” - the reality is that you will likely be better off waiting for the drop, then buying,

I’ve had a Vanguard account for many years. I’m thinking of taking a job with a financial organization that will require me to transfer all my holdings to their platform. I understand why they want me to do this but I’m not happy about it. Is there any way around this?

The stock market doesn’t crash anymore. The algorithms have fixed that.

If you think we’re going to ever have another major collapse you haven’t been paying attention.

Technology has put a stop to that.

Sorry, R128, I call March of 2020 a COVID crash. The S&P dropped to 64.5% of it's Feb 2020 high.

I wasn't worried, because I knew it would go back up which it did 5 months later. In August of 2020, the S&P exceeded the previous Feb 2020 high.

The "crash" in 1987 went to 64%

Robinhood stock fell from 50s in late last year to 12$ now. That's almost 200% down. Imagine the morale of the employees in that company.

You might want to ask your advisor about dumping any German stock with american facing markets because they are at risk of a major boycott from the rest of the western countries.

If r127 is already thinking of breaking a rule of their potential new financial institution employer, please do them and yourself a favor and not take the job. Yes, they will eventually find out. No company likes an employee who "understands" their rules, but doesn't follow them.

The good news is that you'll soon be able to transfer your assets back to Vanguard after they fire you.

Is that by chance the same algorithm Zillow was using to purchase overpriced houses?

Are you buying the dip?

by Anonymousreply 141February 24, 2022 7:05 AM

Usually with war it’s “sell the rumour, buy the news”. I’m also keeping an eye on cheap stocks that are dipping, but have a catalyst in the near future (like dividend.)
