More than ever it seems like the volatility in the US stock market is reaching somewhat of a crescendo. Some experts believe that a lot of these re-negotiations, such as the trade wars, are only prolonging the time until the inevitable crash we expect to see, not preventing it.
Even Warren Buffett and Charles Munger from Berkshire Hathaway even made somewhat of an ominous forecast when they predicted at their annual shareholding meeting that a correction is imminent in the next year or two; thus only highlighting their motivation at the conference as to why they haven’t made any powerful investment moves in the last fiscal year—in layman’s terms, they are waiting for markets to plunge in order to get the largest shares of equity in deals they feel are right.
But the news beckons a question: if there is to be a stock market crash in 2022 like some experts analysts predict, what is there to do about it?
Diversify your Portfolio
The first thing you can do is diversify your portfolio into avenues you may not have considered in the past. Recent trends show that the new favorite in ETFs is real estate. Reason being, is investments into real estate has proven that even during the test of time, you generally can remain cash flow positive regardless of the economic conditions, and even poor case scenarios of breaking even on real estate investments, you still can receive somewhat of a profit if the ETF makes an exit from the holding.
A more aggressive investment is cryptocurrency. While the future of cryptocurrency for the large part even leaves a lot of highly knowledgeable people stuck in speculation, the current numbers of bitcoin suggest that it may be a minimized risk you might not want to pass up on.
Even in the peaks and lows, the ability for cryptocurrency to appreciate in value is rapid, and fast returns can make hobbyists out of investors who are just looking to initially diversify their portfolio!
Minimize Your Debt
Being candid, there is a lot of debt one simply can’t snap their fingers and make disappear. Such as home mortgages or some student loans. But if you have debts that can be renegotiated at cheaper interest rates, it might help ease the financial burden, thus helping you not only pay off your debt faster but open the potential to save money.
There are many financial institutes you can visit either in person or online like Financer.com, that can structure you a deal that makes sense to your current goals. You can find direct online lenders like MoneyLion, that are eager and willing to help you explore your options during the process.
Leading up to a recession, the media has had an uncanny talent of stirring up and manufacturing panic especially when it benefits their television programs.
You should not panic, nor let good deals pass you by in the interim. There are many times where you could make an investment, that is considered a good deal, but if you went solely after trying to listen and predict the market, you could miss out on huge opportunities right before your eyes!
