The Fallout: A Lost Decade and More…
For a buy and hold investor it took almost 13 years- from March 2000-January 2013- just to recover what they had lost in the S&P downturns. They made nothing and would have seriously depleted their nest egg had they taken money out for retirement or emergencies.

Can You Afford to Proceed with Business as Usual?
Since bottoming out in March 2009, the S&P has completed an 8-year bull market run that has more than tripled its value. Yet over the same time, the actual economy has recorded the weakest recovery since WW II. Does that make sense to you?
2 Major Sources Boosted Its Climb:
The Fed’s quantitative easing (QE)
Corporate stock buybacks
But the fed has now ended QE and begun a series of rate hikes. Also, insider selling from corporate executives has risen to record levels in recent months.
Facing such headwinds, are we about to experience “déjà vu all over again”? Can you afford to lose another 50-60% of your nest egg, or perhaps even more?
