Strategy Points:

Almost anywhere you turn in late 2019, it seems like there’s at least one person talking about the upcoming market crash. After more than a decade of growth, it’s not a surprise that some people are calling for a correction.

But how bad will that correction be? That’s the part we’re most concerned with because the memories of 2008 are still pretty fresh for many investors. We learned some harsh lessons during that recession and we hope to avoid having to deal with that again.

That’s why we’re asking J’Neanne Theus to open up on this subject for this episode of the Your Financial Mission podcast. We know that she can’t predict the future, but let’s leverage her years and years of experience and expertise into some thoughts on what the next market crash could look like. Will it be as bad as 2008? When could it begin? And how can our portfolios be ready?

This is a concern that many individuals have so let’s see if we can help ease some of the anxiety by answering these questions and discussing strategies that can offset the losses. Don’t forget to check out a recent article from J’Neanne about keeping perspective during market ups and downs.
