How to Prepare for a Stock Market Crash
Knowing how to prepare for a stock market crash is a necessity for investors today. With the Fed set to raise interest rates this year, the stock market bubble could pop sooner rather than later.
A stock market crash can be devastating to your portfolio. Retirement funds lost nearly $2 trillion during the stock market crash of 2008.
Speculative investing has led to an overvalued stock market in 2016, very similar to the one that preceded the 2008 crisis. At the FOMC meeting this month, the Fed is expected to raise interest rates. Higher interest rates might be just what the market needs to collapse.
But prepared investors can do more than just protect their money. They can even profit during a market crash.
