There’s no question that when some think of the future of the stock market, it could very easily be pretty scary to fathom, especially if you are an investor. Ted Bauman, with almost 20 years of experience in finances under his belt, believes that chances run about 50/50 for the stock market to continue rising, as well as a possible plunge to its lowest lows.
Ted Bauman says that to protect your wealth from a potential stock market crash, it’s important to view Wall Street through the following three awareness states.
Huge Crash, Then a Leap in Stock Market
Bauman predicts that rules-based selling may cause stocks to unexpectedly crash. Black Monday in October of 1987 was caused by rules-based selling. But interestingly enough, those investors who bought extra stocks anyway saw a 10% return on their investments by the end of that year. It’s important not to panic and sell right away.
A Balanced Viewpoint
Ted Bauman gained much of his leadership experience at World Bank as their former urban planner. Overvalued stock prices may need to revert to their lower values, and while this shift may take a year or more to occur, investors may realize by the time the shift happens that their investment is far too risky.
Increasing Long-Term Interest Rates?
It is very likely that the U.S. Treasury’s interest rates will increase over the next few sessions. With his experiences over two decades of contributing to various charities and managing low-income housing, he isn’t worried about the volatility of the current stock market. Planning for the future is extremely important.
