Coming Market Conditions Will Separate 3 Types of Investors. Which are you?
EWI's research shows that many financial markets, including stocks, are approaching a critical juncture. The ensuing volatility will separate investors into three broad categories.
Prepared investors will be positioned to survive and prosper in the new environment. Unprepared investors will, hopefully, realize their precarious position and scramble to safety.
The third group is the Pseudo-Prepared. They think they are prepared…but they are not. Their strategies rest on assumptions like the Fed controls the economy; earnings drive stock prices; news determines the market's path; gold is a good hedge; diversification equals stability…and many other “truths.”
The problem is that these assumptions are demonstrably false.
Pseudo-Prepared investors will be the most devastated of all by the new environment. These investors cling to their strategies even as their wealth gets ravaged. They listen to the same conventional experts, who now scratch their heads and use terms like “Black Swan” to explain why the markets are operating outside their models. This is exactly what happened in 2000 and 2008…and the same early warning signs are flashing again.
When volatility returns, investors' conventional wisdom crumbles and takes portfolios with it. It happens again, and again, and again.
Don't let that be you.
