Our Rich Journey – We Invested $5,000 In the Crashing Stock Market | See Our Portfolio (Ep. 1): After the stock market rise and peak in February 2020, the market came crashing down the following month in March. Throughout the month of March, we saw the market dive, creep back up, dive again, and set off circuit breakers. Many people are liquidating their entire portfolios and taking a loss. We’re doing the exact opposite – we’re buying into the market! This month, we invested $5,000 into the market and we have our account set up to automatically invest into the stock market each month. In this video, we share why we think it’s a good time to invest in the market now, where we’re getting the money we’re using to invest since we’re early retirees, what we invested in, why we selected our particular investments, how we allocated our portfolio, and we also share the Vanguard, Schwab, and Fidelity equivalents of what we invested in. This video is the first episode in a series of videos. Each month, we’ll invest more money into our portfolio and we’ll open up our portfolio to share how our investments have fluctuated and how much our portfolio has gained or lost. Thanks for watching!
