The way I see it – even though one person might think: “This is a bad time to invest…my stocks are down 30%” – a WEALTHY person would see this as an OPPORTUNITY to buy those exact same companies…for a 30% discount.

The fact is, when times are difficult – companies scale back, they fold, they conserve cash, and they play it safe – but, this opens the door for more aggressive, smaller companies to stand out and take their place.

In a way, a recession is the markets way of “Weeding out the weak," giving opportunities to newer, smaller people and businesses to develop.

As Yahoo Finance points out, “historically, the S&P 500 has fallen an average of 29% around a recession with a median drop of 24%” – but, once stocks have found their low…the average return the following year is 40%…and, within two years…the market has increased by 58%.

In terms of what to do:

One, Scale Back On Your Expenses.
This means that you track your income, cut back on the unnecessary spending, and operate “lean” while you continue re-investing on a regular basis. It should also include a plan to outline what you would do if your income drops 20-50%, how you would make up that difference, and if you can take preventative measures – AHEAD OF TIME, to protect yourself from this happening.

Two, Hold Some Cash.
I’m a firm believer that, even though your money is statistically BEST OFF invested as soon as possible…there is the peace of mind of having a cash position, at all times, to take advantage of any opportunities that may come up.

Three, Protect your career.
This, at the end of the day, is going to be your BEST HEDGE against whatever happens…after all, your worst case scenario, financially, isn’t a market going down…it’s a market that goes down, during a time where you lose your job, and can’t afford to hold your investments long enough for them to recover. NOW is the time to IMPROVE yourself, learn new skills, double down on everything, and use that your advantage.

Generally, it’s best not to invest any money that you might need in the next 5 years…and, preferably, even longer. The best course is action – when it comes to investing – is not to do anything different, and carry on as usual. Its shown dollar cost averaging, or the practice of buying into the market at regular intervals over the long term – is the most profitable investing strategy. So, stay in the markets…and continue buying in.

If you personally can’t handle a 20% drop in prices without panicking…then, maybe, you’re invested too aggressively. For instance, if you’re completely in US tech stocks, look into adding large cap and international stocks into the mix. Or, potentially look into investing in real estate, where rents tend to be a little more stable. The more legs your portfolio has to stand on, the less likely it’ll collapse if one or two of them decline.

  1. The way you just went right into the segment was great. Straight news. Zero fluff. This was one of your best streams. More emphasis should be put into trading since it is way profitable than hodling. Trading went smooth for me as I was able to raise over 10.2 BTC when I started at 4.5 BTC in just few weeks implementing MYSTICFLIP daily trading signals and tips..

  2. Thanks<, for all you do! I like your truthful coverage. Mad respect for educating everyone. BTC's price has been fluctuating lately, but I think we should be educating the newbies on what to do aside holding rather than discussing about the dip. The good thing about the space is that you can buy the dips and put them into active trades making profits from trades while confidently waiting for a pump in price because it is inevitable. Most people do not understand how the space works. Your advantage is understanding, Charts won’t guarantee what an asset is going to do. Prices will go up or down. Nevertheless, the market has been so profitable despite price ups and down. I've always played safe implementing trades with insights and signals from a renowned trader, MYSTICFLIP . I made 9.3 BTC from the recent crash in the market within a period of six weeks..

  3. Love the grounded reality of this channel. With what I’ve learned over a decade investing, given enough time, solid investments have the potential to double the initial principal amount, but many investors are instead attracted to the lure of high yields in short periods of time despite the possibility of unattractive losses before even getting out. So the onus is on newbies to beware. Big thanks to MYSTICFLIP .. I’m not bothered with how bad the Market is because my assets are well insured due to his advice and I still receive my profit. from 4.3 Btc to 41 BTC

    1. Lol, try Mark Moss’s channel for some grounded reality, this guy has as much investing experience as my 14 Y/o son. Nice film set with the rented Lambo in the background!

  4. As you can see we are already in August and I feel those who would allow the market dynamism to determine when to trade or not are either new in space in general or probably just naïve, the sphere have seen far worse times than this, enlightened traders continue to make good use of the dip and pump even acquiring more equities towards trading sessions, I’d say that more emphasis should be put into trading since it is way profitable than holding. Trading went smooth for me as I was able to raise over 9.2 BTC when I started at 3.5 BTC in just few weeks implementing trades with signals and insights from MYSTICFLIP would advise y’all to trade your asset rather than hold for a future you aren’t sure about.

  5. Simple, reliable, scalable, and consistent – that’s what I look for in passive investments and continues to deliver. Mike Flaherty and the MYSTICFLIP team do the heavy lifting, generating competitive returns for investors in the form of both cash and peace of mind

  6. Everybody is concerned about the market going down but refusing to take advantage of it. The best decision I ever made in my life was investing regardless of the market condition. I made over 118k.USD with a start up of 39k.USD in the last three months . Trust me guys, it really pays a lot!

    1. I’m from Canada and I am currently on a weekly profit of $21,000 . I bless the day I invested with Kathryn Jo Garvin Financials

    2. As a single mom Trading with Kathryn Jo Garvin financials really gave me an assurance that i could get out of debts

  7. Great stream, as always. I appreciate the level-headed approach you take to the news and the markets. . A lot has changed and that’s on everything but the truth is I don’t even care much about bullish or bearish market anymore because MYSTICFLIP got me cover as I am comfortably making 5.1B T C monthly.

  8. Amazing video and thank you for breaking it down!! Despite the economic downturn, I’m so happy have been earning $ 60,000 returns from my $7,000 investment every 10days..

  9. I am new to the stock market. Every stock that I bought so far, I was out of luck because I bought them when they were expensive. I feel I missed out on all the stock opportunities so far for the tech stocks.I believe having 175K yearly income would be a good investment so I want to plug all my savings into the stock market. I know this sounds a bit dull but I would like to know if I should learn investing or let somebody else (more capable like a FA) do it for me? Please share your thoughts. I am kind of tired of searching for a good stock to buy and losing all the good opportunities..

    1. Keep it simple in the beginning. Buy something, like an index fund, and hold. Educate yourself in the meantime and elevate your risk tolerance over time.

    2. @NAFIU ALHASSAN ibrahim In order to make profits from trading you need loads of experience and a well defined strategy, which most traders don’t have. If you trade without the proper preparation, you’re most likely to lose your money. Identify the buy/sell ratios and identify the market leaders and most importantly.

    4. Inflation is gradually going to become part of us and due to that fact any money you keep in cash or in a low-interest account declines in value each year.

  10. Thank you for your insight, may this year be a full of great accomplishments.The secret to wealth is simple you’ve got to start taking steps to achieve your goal.

    1. Congratulations. You’re really doing well for yourself. How can I work with your consultant. Any help would go a long way in shaping my finances.

    2. I invests with *Olivia Charlotte Oswald* a well known advisor. You can make a quick internet research with her name mentioned where you can easily get in touch. I wish you all the best.

    3. Thanks. I’m really fascinated about lnvesting and I’m Iucky I saw your comment. I wiII Iook up for her and drop a message. You realIy inspired me. God bIess you.

    4. I know Olivia as well. I’m happy I saw good recommendations about her here. She has helped me manage my lnvestment for six months now and to be honest it feels great when you are with the wining team. I will keep Growing with her

    5. That’s a good decision if you start now. I invested in Cryptocurrencies and real estate with the help of a Fin. consultant and was able to buy my first house last year September and hope to buy more if things keep going smoothly for me.

  11. It’s really a house of cards just like Doug Casey says. There are lots of mixed opinions about stocks and there projection in the next coming years, I aim for short term solid gains from market correction and I’d definitely jump on the boat if I knew a thing or two about day-trading, but then again what do I really know? I’m just looking for the right moves to grow and hedge my stagnant reserve of $570k from inflation.

    1. Due to my curiosity in other traders’ tactics, I follow an advisor in addition to trading my own portfolio. I discovered that I’ve gotten better at overseeing traders’ techniques as well. Having someone far more committed manage a portion of your portfolio is absolutely OK.

    2. I agree; I’ve been in touch with a financial advisor frequently for the past eight months or so. Today, buying trending stocks is quite simple; the difficult part is deciding whether to sell or hold. My advissor assists me with points of entry and exit in the industries where I am currently employed. I don’t regret it because in just five months, my profits from my initial $160,000 investment had increased by 27%.

    3. @Tampabay Rodeo Please can you leave the info of your analyst here? I overheard someone talking about how a couple made $200k during this red season. I need such luck lol

    4. I suggest utilizing registered and approved SEC and FINRA representatives. Maria Juliana Ramirez offers 1v1 consultations, which I find remarkable, and has the best performance history in my opinion. I have no idea how many merchants like that are in existence.

    5. @Tampabay Rodeo I’m delighted to engage in this opportunity. Searched her name and her website popped up immediately, interesting stuff so far, booked a call with her.

  12. I appreciate your approach to teaching.. To my understanding this just proves how much we need an edge as investors because playing the market like everyone else just isn’t good enough, we just need to hold onto our hopes and wait to see how things turn out because market movements are almost always unpredictable. In my portfolio, I’m noticing more red than green and my retirement is edging closer by the day.

  13. Stocks are pretty unstable at the moment, but if you do the right math, you should be just fine. Bloomberg and other finance media have been recording cases of folks gaining over 250k just in a matter of weeks/couple months, so I think there are alot of wealth transfer in this downtime if you know where to look.

    1. yes, transportation, e-commerce among other sectors are expected to experience growth, but who knows, the market has been a basket of surprises.

    2. @Kelvin Lee Such market uncertainties are the reason I don’t base my market judgements and decisions on rumours and here-says, got the best of me 2021 and had me holding worthless position in the market, I had to revamp my entire portfolio through the aid of an advisor, before I started seeing any significant results happens in my portfolio!!!!!!!!!!!!!>>>>

  14. Great video ,I agree having a brokerage advsor for inveesting is genius! Not long ago amidst the pandemic crash in March 2020, I was really having inveesting nightmare prior touching base with a advisor. In a nutshell, I’ve accrued over $950k with the help of my advisor from an initial $70k investment thus far

    1. That’s impressive! I could really use the xpertise of this manager for my dwindling portflio. Who’s the person guiding you?

    2. My adviisor Sharon Sue Parker , is a highly respected financial consultant in the industry. For further information or to connect with her, a simple online search with her name will suffice. I wish you every success in your endeavors.

  15. With inflation running at a four-decade high, the Recession is now the ‘most likely outcome for the economy and I cannot imagine being a victim of circumstances. My portfolio suffered a big hit, holding it further won’t be any good. I’ve heard of people netting hundreds of thousands this red season. How can I ensure this?

    1. @Owen Kalfman How can one find a resourceful F-A, I buy the idea of employing their services, it’s a shame how the downtrend has reduced the worth of my port.folio drastically.

    2. @Lisa Ramirez I would never take advice online but i curiously looked this person up and reached out to her for assistance. she seems competent and experienced.

  16. How to Hedge Against Inflation: Keep some extra cash on hand, Invest in Various Assets (stocks, real estate, etc.), If you are going to take on debt, better to take it on earlier (assuming you can pay it) before interest rates rise. Refinance

    1. People believe their currency has the worth it does because they have no other option. Even in a hyperinflationary environment, individuals must continue to use their hyperinflationary currency since they likely have minimal access to other currencies or gold/silver coins.

    2. You are right! I diversified my $400K portfolio across various market with the aid of an investment coach, I have been able to generate a little bit above $1.2m in net profit across high dividend yield stocks, ETF and bonds during this red season.

    3. please who is the consultant that assist you with your investment and if you don’t mind, how do I get in touch with them?

    4. Eileen Ruth Sparks is my coach-look her up. She’s a reputable tutor who showed me that profits can be produced in both bull and downturn markets. She talks about investing, insurance, making sure your retirement is well-funded, and searching for methods to create a volatility buffer for investment risk, among other topics.

  17. So basically, what’s the chance of an individual investor going against a hedge fund. Not trying to sound dull but I would like to know if I should learn about investing or let somebody else (more capable like an expert) do it for me? I came across a YouTube video where this investor was bragging about making a $100k in monthly profit. I wonder what strategies I need to apply to make such profit

    1. I’ve been in touch with a financial analyst ever since I started my business. Knowing today’s culture The challenge is knowing when to purchase or sell when investing in trending stocks, which is pretty simple. On my portfolio, which has grown over $900k in a little over a year, my adviser chooses entry and exit orders.

    2. Keep it simple. Buy something, like an index fund, and hold. Educate yourself in the meantime and elevate your risk tolerance over time

    3. @bset days678 I want to play the long term game with well diversified fund. Please how can i reach this CFP of yours?

    4. @Brandy White ”ELEANOR ANNETTE ECKHAUS” is the financial advisor that helps me. She has a large following and is easily found online. She has extensive understanding of the financial markets.

    5. Thank you for the advice; I’ve been losing a ton recently, so I sought up Eleanor Annete and wrote to her outlining my financial objectives

  18. When it comes to financial advice, I’m always willing to watch your videos. I appreciate you for all the time being spent to share this video, I came across Ramora Hudson 🇺🇸
