The current S&P 500 bull market run we are in now will grow to be seven years old if it reaches March of 2016. That would officially make it one of the top three longest bull runs in American stock market history (if it makes it there, of course). As thousands and thousands of people are rushing into retirement each and every day, the message is simple:
“When it comes to the stock market, what comes up will eventually come down.”
Markets do not go up forever. So, what plan do you have to protect yourself from the next crash? Better yet, do you know how much money you can afford to invest in the market when you retire?
Here are some questions to think about:
- What defines a Bull Market vs a Bear Market?
- How long do bull and bear markets usually last?
- Can you actually predict when the market is going to crash?
- Do you have to invest your money into the stock market to actually make money?
- How risky is it to develop a regular income stream from a stock market portfolio?
These questions, and more, will be discussed on our upcoming Income For Life Radio show – so tune in and visit us online at www.IncomeForLife.org for more information and follow along with us for future podcast episodes.
