When it comes down to it, eventually, a Bear Market is inevitable. As we near the end of our current Bull Market Cycle it’s time to start planning for a Bear.
It’s important to keep in mind a Bear Market won’t last forever, and sticking to your plan is ideal. None of the big companies we tend to bank on are going to go bankrupt during a natural economic downturn. Unless you need the cash now, there is no reason to sell-off, and if you anticipate needing cash during the next year or so, think about converting more of your assets to cash now.
The bottom line is, a Bear Market doesn’t signal the end of the world. It’s a natural part of the economic cycle, and as long as you plan for it, it shouldn’t have any long-term implications on the value of your assets.
