With the market making all time highs seemingly every week, we’ve been asked, “When is the market going to crash?” Our immediate answer focuses on two things –
- No one knows when the market is going to crash.
- It might happen when we see excesses in the market.
In this week’s podcast we discuss how excesses in the market (also known as euphoria) might be the one thing to cause the next downturn.
We look back at history, the late 90’s and 2007 – 2008 to discuss what happened when excesses caused the market to crash and how indexing certainly was not the best answer.
We discuss not only the excesses, but more importantly, What did we do about it back then? What are we going to do about it now?
Here’s to wise investing,
Iron Gate Global Advisors
We have taken the opportunity to sponsor our Account Manager McKenna Strong as she and her husband, James, travel to the Dominican Republic taking part in Utah State University’s SEED (Small Enterprise Education and Development) program.
The program is helping less fortunate individuals in foreign countries become more successful and independent.
They are also assisting with Operation Underground Railroad After Care, helping women and children who have been rescued from sex trafficking to gain skills to become self-reliant. This is the same program that we donated to on behalf of our clients this past Christmas.
We’re so proud of McKenna and James! You can read about their weekly adventures and experiences on our blog.
