Five Tips for Staying Sane When Markets Go Mad

PERSPECTIVES: Stick to your investment goals and horizons, don’t sell at the point of panic and if you can’t take the bad news anymore, turn the TV off, suggests IFA Alex Riley

1. If you have followed a financial plan, then sufficient levels of cash should already be held in reserve for shorter term requirements. If this is the case, then you should not be dependent on access to your investment portfolio right now.

2. If you still maintain an investment horizon over a number of years from today, it is important to remember that it is the value of your investment in the future that is key and not the value today.

3. Making the assumption that your portfolio is falling at the same rate as the various global stock markets reported in the media also assumes that you are invested 100% in those markets. In reality most investors following an asset allocation plan will have capped exposure to the stock market, therefore if your portfolio is allocated 50% stocks and 50% bonds then you will have approximately half the exposure to any stock market volatility.

4. Selling now would trigger an actual loss rather than what is currently a paper loss and if you sold now where would you put the receipts to enable you to recoup any losses?

5. Markets move quickly as we have seen in the last two weeks or so. If and when a recovery comes it is also likely to be swift so market timing, trading in and out, could leave you even worse off if you get it wrong.

It is perfectly natural and understandable to take fright from the current volatility however the key to traversing the current problems is to not panic, take a step back to calm your thoughts, remember your original reasons for investing and only take action if is absolutely necessary for you to do so. Sometimes it might even be worth turning the television off if it spares you from taking the wrong action.

Do you agree with the Occupiers demands?

Free college, open borders and 2 trillion dollars.

Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending “Freetrade” by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

Demand four: Free college education.

Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.

Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America’s nuclear power plants.

Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the “Books.” World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the “Books.” And I don’t mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

Donald asks…

Investing in Real Assets rather than Fiat Dollars?

Investing ideas for the Fiat Dollar?
I am looking to compile a list of real assets that will be good for trade for the event of a paper dollar collapse. The USA Dollar index broke a major level of support and there is too much evidence to prepare holding dollars in stocks, mutual funds, bonds and so on.

Smart investing would be to try and get great prices, and then you can obtain more real assets. Also smart is picking items that would be planned for use as well as planned for trade in later dates (looking for products others could use)

What other assets are great to invest for that is not included on this list?

REAL METALS (silver, gold, copper, nickel etc.)
FOOD (canned, fresh, water etc)
AGRICULTURE (equipment and supplies; tractor, seeds, fertilizer etc)
ENERGY (batteries, backup generator, solar panel)
APPAREL (shoes, coats, pants etc)
MEDICINE AND DRUGS
BOOKS (reading [fiction and non fiction], blank paper)
GUNS & AMMO
TECHNOLOGY
LAND
TRAVEL (cars, bikes, horses)
ANIMALS/LIVESTOCK (horses, dogs, chickens, pigs etc)
