What To Do When The Market Crashes?

Saturday, February 16, 2013 - 9:26 PM
The author of this blog suggests your action depends on your tolerance for
risk; investors with a:

     ... high tolerance for risk ... rebalance back into stocks (that is,
         buy more of them
     ... less risk tolerance ... choose a “do nothing” approach. That is,
         they don’t sell their stocks, but they don’t buy more either
     ... very low risk tolerance ... pull their money out of stocks and
         move it into something safer

It appears the author is just providing some obvious bits of information and attempting to sell subscriptions to his newsletter.

It is not only a question of "What to do"; but more importantly, "When?" (it will happen definitely due to the economical disaster but it is a matter of time/trigger which nobody knows).

Shorebreak: You're likely correct, but he also has links to several
basic topics articles (eg, Investing 101, Taxes) at the top of his
web page which seem like they might be helpful to beginners on those
subjects.  I kind of thought I'd throw him some slack for this.

Also FWIW I did peak at his book and the crowd gave it
overwhelmingly favorable reviews.

51hh: Bullseye. Thanks.
